I think if you kept it purple, everyone would call you Barney. But seriously, it is all up to you. What year is your truck? 2wd? 4wd? Engine? Lifted? Lowered? Color? Mods?

We need a better understanding of what you're working with brotha.

okay as of right now i got a green 4x4 2000 ranger super cab. the color purple reminds me of the color that james duff used to use for there bumpers. my truck is straight stock when it comes to the engine, tires, and suspension. im currently working on getting some 33 12.50 15 baja claws. and im going to do a t-bar crank and a bodly lift soon too,

Well, I could see if you had/have plans for like, custom bumpers or trim or even body graphics that was colormatched purple to the rollbar....BUT...honestly, you'll look like Barney on 4 wheels. Paint that biatch black, lift it, 33" it....then think about going James Duff 'style wise with purple....catch my drift?

Thats just what I'd do, but hey, your truck.

Definitely paint it, no questions asked! What is the roll bar out of? Looks like it will need some work to make it fit in your bed.

Paint it. No questions asked. That just would look ridiculous on a green truck.

And those look like mounts for a light bar, like you said.

paint it.
sell it.
look at the angle of the rear supports: when mounted, they would have nothing to attach to.
