    MC that is what I thought too. Maybe a hand-built grill/headlight protection system. However, what’s up with the front rounded bumper? I suppose they had to use that low pressure slick tire to keep the belt from slipping off. ND would not work. Finally, is that an anti-decapitation wire cutter attached to the front bumper?

    Hey!! This might be the first time Duct Tape was used as a multi-purpose tool around that front screen!! Maybe??
