Pre-Runner Bar on 98-00... Anyone got pics?

I am thinking about getting one of these after I remove my front valance. Does anyone have pics of one on a 98-00 Ranger? I am curious to see what it looks like. Heres a link to the one im thinking about getting. Is that a good deal?

Shhh nobodys supposed to know that

Well since the secret is out, yes I do have that one. The one that will fit a Ranger though does not have the skid plate, its just the top part so you'll have to fab up a skid plate for it.

Give me 10min and I'll post a photo of it.

(so maybe its not a secret, I'v had it for over 2years )... lol...

Thanks... So the 2 vertical tubes did not come with it? That was one of the main reasons I wanted it was to add a large skid plate to the front. Do you have any pics taken from the side. I would like to see how much it sticks out. Also it mounts to your frame right? What are your opinions on it... Like it?

I'll take a side picture in the morning for ya...

No, no skid plate. The one with the skid plate wont fit our small trucks.

Yes I added those two tubes.

No it doesnt bolt to the frame, it comes with brackets to bolt to the bumper. I made a "spacer" of sorts when I took off my stock bumper.

I like it. It still looks good after over two years.

Thats awesome... I would love to make something that like that. How difficult are they to make? Only thing is, I would like to keep my bumper. I am going to remove the valance though. If I was going to make one and keep my bumper on, how would I mount it? I would really rather mount it to the frame that the bumper so its a bit more sturdy.
Thanks...
