brush guard for 2005 sprinter

I want an front end bumper /bash guard/skid plate for my 2005 sprinter. The Sportsmobile type is listed for 2007-2011. Can it be mounted or modified for the 2005? Otherwise it looks like the delivery truck which it is. Thanks.

Thank you for the effort. That is the first I have seen for the 2005.
However, it is not available, and it is a whopping $2000

I have seen some for 2007 -11 around $600
I wonder if I could make one fit

Try there guys for your brush guard. You definitely can NOT easily modify 2007 models as the front end changed,

This is a good option if you want a cosmetic grill guard. However, it won't protect from anything but small shrubs, and if you hit an animal, will likely cause more damage.

If you want something structural, stick with Aluminess. There stuff isn't cheap, but is likely less than the repairs would cost of you hit a deer on the freeway.
