Light Bar

Any ideas where I could find a light bar for a Ranger? What I am needing is pretty much just a straight bar that I can put lights on. I am not interested in a full grille guard or bull bar. Any help is appreciated! I'd rather not go the custom route cause there is no telling how much that would cost.

Here is the link to the light bar that goes to a F-150 which is something like I am wanting. Hell they make the dang thing for a Ford Edge, but not a Ranger? Seriously...Accessories Light Bars Light Bar 09 10 F150 Black KC HiLiTES: Auxiliary Lighting, HID Off Road Lights, Fog Lights, Driving Lights, Light Bars, Wiring Accessories

Yeah man I like that! Clean and sharp looking. Did you make that or did you buy that somewhere? I did a search of the site and couldnt find anything like I was talking about besides what you have. There are those like light tabs or something that attach into the grille someway they are pretty cool too, but I can't find them on the Internet anywhere. All that to say, yes what you have is what I am looking for.

They are attached to the bumper bolts. This saved the front end of my truck last year from a deer 3/16 metal, bent the bar to sh*t broke all the lights an ripped open the deer. Its a simple design 3 pieces of metal welded with 6 holes. I use the underdog performance specs but cut them back for a cleaner look. You can make it for $20. If you need more info just PM me I'll be glad to help you build yours.

Sounds good man. I appreciate your help! Ever since I re-ended a van, that light bar I got on there now has never been the same. I'll post pics up asap when I get done with the work.

Is your bar just painted black? I was almost thinking about powder coating to insure long life of the paint. And you said that the light tabs attach to the bumper? I suppose there are predrilled holes back there?

Alright, I look into it. Any thoughts painting after the welding is done? Powder coated or just straight flat black with primer already in the paint?

Mines linex'ed, its complete bolt on. If you put your hand down between the header panel and bumper you'll feel the bumper bolts.
