Brush guard for 2002 F350- more than cosmetic?

Are any of the typical brushguards we see for sale actually functional?....as in able to withstand pushing a car without bending and hitting the lights, hood, grill?

From the pics they always look the mounting points create an inherent weakness.

Can anyone recommend a heavy duty brushguard?

They do have law enforcement spec units available- Galls might even have the best price. IMHO, I agree, the quality of many are, well, better off building your own.
