Now to install install the bar on a ranger we donít have gutters like the old truck so you need this gutter kit.

Stainless gutter kit $13.95

There are others that actually screw into the roof of the truck. Like the top part of the roof is what I am talking about, those are a little cheaper. I will stick with the KC bar myself and spend the extra money.

you know on your truck right now with the KC bar you do not need the gutter kit because you already have a rain gutter... so you just need the bar...

plus skimping and buying the cheap crap is just as good as going to wally world and getting "KC WANNABE" lights and think there just as good as KC's there is a reason they cost as much as they do...plus wally world dont come with a 100% 23 year warrenty on the whole light including bulb burn out...

but ya your right and i would rather not be a "kc wannabe" style. never have, never will

if you buy the right bar the first time you can use it on the new truck so in time it will save you money.
