it even comes with all the hardware to bolt on and urethane plug endcaps.
I bought it on sale with hella 500ff combo for $140 and they gave me $15 off the lights.

What do you guys think looks promising?

It looks good but Fabtech makes a light bar similar to that.

I looked for Fabtech styles before but ended up calling them direct and they no longer make those light bars. If you have a link to the fabtech ones with in stock and prices would be great for other guys to choose from. Myself I never found it., plenty for f-150 and f250's

Trigger01 thanks my truck looks similar to yours(not as nice) but have the 16x7 tear drop wheels. I have some MT beadlocks 15x10 but don't have a lift kit and want to trade for some 15x8 or 16x8's
I will get some pics of my truck but going to philly in the morning. going to certifit to score some new oem foglights and maybe o7 taillights. cheap there.

The Fabtech bar is universal as well as application specific. Here is the universal: FTT10020BK Mini/Mid Universal. I'm sure it's more than the bar you posted.

Nice choice. I wanna see it on. I just bought me something like it to but mine was definitely not made for a Ranger so I got fabbing to do. How much did it cost you?

His was a Fabtech brand one, so it wasn't him. This one mounts different, I remember seeing it before on here and noticing how it mounted different.

sorry for the delay. I was home for only a day and family time was more important then light bar time. I did test fit it,and I must say it lines upi perfect and flush.
you do have to drill into the bumper so i imagine I have to remove the Valence I just had painted and 3m taped in there so it would stay better :(.
I did have a chance to hit the certifit.com store in baltimore and picked up some new oem foglights for $35 each and the 07-08 front corners for $17. not bad prices at all.

Will post pics when I instal it hopefully before xmas but it's cold in buffalo.
