I have a Hunter, It's close, but they are still useable without bending the bar. Pm me, I'm considering selling.

It does work with stock skid, have to trim valence a tad, but it fits up so tight I think it was worth it.

I'm kinda looking for one too... but can't seem to find any that don't block the tow points. I hate to block those tow points.

that ones looks like the westin one w/o the skid plate.

in regards to the westin one, do you have to mount that little "westin" plate or can you leave it off?
the only reason i don't like the westin is it's too thick of a tube. it's more suited for the full size crowd.

I agree completely..I feel like its out of place on a ranger. I thought that the one for a ranger had 2.5" diameter tubing instead of 3" though?
