Best place to buy grill guards?

Just got a 03 ranger and I think the first thing I wanna do to it is get a sturdy black full grill guard.

Where are the best and cheapest ways to get these?

Has anybody ever bought the ones on ebay?

I am lookin at this one right now.

have you considered a light bar instead of the brush guard? here is an example about 1/4 of the way down the page http://www.jamesduff.com/broncoII/bumpers_carriers.html .

Go with a full brush guard, has more protection
Mine is a westin brush guard and ill recommend summit racing equipment-i work there-its a good company-

but if you can find similar product for cheaper go for it
but get a full guard, they are worth it, already saved me in a collision
had a car back out in front of me in a parking lot, i was doing about 10mph when i hit him, brush guard took the impact, and truck left with a scratch or two, other car had a smashed in right rear corner
well worth there money and highly recommended

yeha I was lookin for a full guard....on a budget. That one looks good but I was wondering if anybody had any experience with the ebay guards?

Also do any of the explorer grill guards bolt to the rangers frame without any modification?

if the part #s match on the guards then they should be the same and should easily fit, but if each vehicle has a different #, then it may not fit

I had one off of an explorer on my 04 for awhile. It bolted right up to the bottom of the front frame rails. Only modification was I had to drill a hole on each rail, and used the an existing hole for the other side of the mount bolt.

I am pretty sure it was originally bought on ebay. I think it was a Manik. There was a seller who was regularly selling them on ebay for about $250 shipped. Didn't see it when I just did a search though.
