I had a bull bar on mine for a while... held up well in an accident too. Protected the front end and saved me from a bit of damage to both vehicles. Won't look stupid if the truck isn't lifted. Mine isn't in that pic.

Yours is lifted compared to his tho. His is an xlt and sits a few inches lower than your 4x4.

I've had my bullbar on for a while. My trucks not lifted or anything, but it is a 4x4. As you can see it looks pretty damn good if I say so myself & it doesn't get in the way out the mountain.





I think you should go for it. I absolutely love mine.

Sarah, that truck is very clean. I tried finding a bug or chip on the front end but couldn't find one. You ought to consider putting a black antennae on it.

not to mention both pics have been from edges too, they also have like 1 or 2 inches on us. personally comming from another 2wd xlt, I dont think it would look stupid, just missplaced
put the money into a nice grille or something. If you plan on lifting wait until you do get it upin the air

Or about $12 from the dealer. I swapped it out for black on my Mach 1 and my Ranger. It's just one of those little things that Ford should have done.

no but it is probably a good idea not to jack this thread anymore.... we could always start a whole 'nother thread about the antenna.

...

The elite is polished stainless steel, the other is black. They both function exactly the same. The stainless steel is for those who want the best of the best and comes with a premium charge. I usually recommend the regular kit unless you have chrome steps, chrome bull bar, chrome grill, etc.
