mount those light tabs to your towhook top bolt hole. i've posted about a dozen times in the past 6months on how i did this to an 07.


or just drill holes in your bumper.

I am assuming these will fit an 02 Mazda,yes? I've been looking for a mounting bar like this.

I see the single tabs do not fit the Mazdas,but do the bars?

personally I bought light tabs from stuff for your ranger. I thought they would be more complicated than they are but they were just two pieces welded together, any joe blow could make his own. Had I known ahead of time I would have done so myself.

what about a joe the plumber? would he be able to make them or just a joe blow?

best thing i learned doing mine is to cut about 3/4 of the way through the piece of flat bar, bend it and then weld it. makes them look really good and as long as your cut was straight the bars will be level.
