Need help finding/choosing a bull bar or grill guard

In you guy's opinion what looks good on the 97 body style. I don't really want something outrageously big or expensive. I have an older summit truckstyle catalog and I kinda like the "Pro Comp pro runner light bar" but I don't think it's manufactured anymore and cant find one anywhere. I could borrow my dad's welder and make something similar but I'd rather buy one then come up with my own. I'd probably jack it up somehow and I'm in college all week and only home on weekends.

not to sound like a d1ck but it sounds like you got burnt. you can find those westins for $400 shipped to your door.


For $80, that one on rocketman's truck looks sweet and is a good deal.

Ok, I like that right there! What was included in the universal mounting kit? Any fabrication needed? Thats the style of the procomp one I liked but couldn't find it. It was in an old summit racing catalog i found.
