A lot of advice we have read about towing a vehicle in Alaska is to protect your radiator and headlights from rocks and debris. All the stuff that is sold specifically for RV towing is Uber Expensive. We checked around and read other blogs and forums and found a solution.
Most people who live in Alaska just put Hardware Cloth on the inside of the car fascia protecting the radiator. Well that takes a lot of time and removal of stuff, so I just picked some up at HD (a 5 foot rolled up sheet of it) for $8.88. I cut a piece to cover the radiator, and then two more to cover the lights.
Yes I drilled and sheet metal screwed it straight to the fascia.
