Anybody else seen the Hanover, New Hampshire Police Ridgeline's brush guard? Google it, it's awesome! I'm looking to buy one, no luck so far!

It's been well documented on the ROC

BTW, the brush guard is provided by a ROC sponsor, Burtman Industries Brush Guard

Police Ridgeline

yeah also someone on the forum did the same things. It is the brush guard for the Honda Ridgeline just that headlight bars were not installed, thats how you get the look as seen in the picture.

Perhaps that's true, but it sure LOOKS more robust than the sorta flimsy, mostly cosmetic guards that are floating around. I have a pretty standard Westin brush guard on my RL, and I shudder to think what the results would be if I tried to do a PIT maneuver on someone with it. Although it looks pretty good, it's held on by only two bolts, one on each side. I can't envision the cops putting something like this on their vehicles.

So the question remains (at least in my mind): where do the cops get these guards that would take such punishment?

Longevity isn't necessarily guaranteed or expected when it comes to police cars and accessories. In the big picture, they are disposable. If the equipment performs once and saves a life or prevents serious consequences, it doesn't matter if it needs to be replaced or repaired. Kind of like a bullet.

Bean counters be damned! ;act028:

Replaced or repaired? How about trying to find it on the road? I think mine would fall off if someone tried to do a maneuver with it like I see the cops do on the news.

Brush guards aren't even necessary to execute a PIT manuever. There are plenty of videos on youtube where you can see that the side of the front fender is usually the initial contact point on the chase car. The brush guard might offer some protection once the pursued vehicle starts its spin but that would be more of a head-on blow.
