Which front bar do you like better?

Im going to get a front bar of some sort, but i cant decide which one.
Which do you think looks best?

#2.. But I'm biased!

Incidentally, the wire light cover/guards over the lamps themselves are removable, at least they are on my Manik bar.

With


Without

I actually bought the bar w/ the intention of loosing the lamp guards.. But then just about as soon as I got them off and stepped back from the truck I realized I really did like the look w/ them in place better..

Oh, and lights make a big improvement IMHO. Not to mention, suplemental high beams sure don't hurt..

I like #3, but would be very surprised if they made it for a Ranger.

Makes the truck look meaner, and you can go around and literally push people around.
Bars are supposed to be big and bulky, that's pretty much the point of them.
Not that a broken headlight is a normal issue, but the guards can help.

What's the point of the other bars? not going to do much at all.

#1 is POOP

#2 on my truck does have ground clearance issues for climbs and such, it's higher than the lowest point on the truck (rear diff or front suspension support), but I recently cranked my t-bars and gained 2", so that's not really a problem any more.
It's also good there, it protects the valence, or if you happened to get in a head-on-collision with a lowrider, it'd fix their hood and bumper a little.
