ARB Sahara Bull Bar

First time posting , just want to start off by saying HELLO to everyone :)

I'm looking to get a bar for my truck. I like to looks of the ARB Sahara bull bars ( http://www.arb.com.au/default.htm?menu.htm&0 ) but they don't make one for a ranger

Is there any company that makes a bar thats close to this?

Thanks
Mason

Been trying to find one for over 5 months now, decided to have it custom made to my spec's that way I get everything I want as well.

I have seen them look very sweet on rangers!!

It would be nice if they made one for our truck, but they don't. Your best bet is probably gonna be custom. What I wish they would make is a snorkel, now that would be awesome:)

I am having one custom fabed for my truck 1994 Ranger, I can very easily take precise measurements and re-program everything into cad w/ measurements for anyone who wants to fab one for themselves. I have rough scketchs of what it will look like in cad now, including 2" reciever, fog light holes, as well as marker light holes. Included is a tubular brush gaurd on the top of it, I'm not exactly sure how that will be connected. but thats what I am having made later on this summer. Anybody want plans there floating around here somewhere , I'll post it when I find it.

Don't know why they don't make one for Rangers or any "light pick-up" as they put it when I called

Is there any brush bar that will replace the bumber skirt (think thats what it's called) on my 01' edge? I cracked the thing the first time I took it out wheeling in the snow. I kinda like the looks of N3ELZ truck maybe I can do something like that, and also put in a bar of some sort.... ... Dunno.. Gotta come up with something :)

Thanks
Mason

Those do look really nice, but I'm sure they probably weigh a ton. Probably the reason the don't make them for Rangers is that would be adding alot of extra weight to the front end.

Removing your valance will be free, and only require a 1/2 hour of time, if that... I would try that and see if you achieve the look your trying to get, it will also give you a couple more inches of clearance. I did it but I have the older style bumper, N3ELZ is a perfect example of how it looks without the valance though. If you don't like your truck without it, simply re-attach it and look for something else. Stay cheap as long as ya can , Personalized don't always me rich!
