    On my tractor, the grill guard makes the stock headlights pretty useless. The bright backscatter off the guard blinds me to what lies beyond.

    That is the 'stock' Kioti grill guard- just modified. Yes, it doesn't improve the headlights. Went with an overhead light bar- which makes bug spray necessary.

    On mine, I was so distracted that I taped it with black electrical tape. I keep telling the dealer they should be black.

    Nice grill guard, btw.
