Icon3 Roll Bar Suggestions, Brands, Etc.

I am considering the possibility of getting a roll bar to drop into my bed. I want to Line-X it to match the bedliner. I am having some problems finding much out there for the Ranger, though. I've seen some cool pics on here of a couple different kinds, but I don't know the brand, price, where to find them, etc.

If you guys have suggestions, ideas, pros and cons of roll bars, I would appreciate it. Of course, pics always speak the loudest!

They have some cool ones, but since they are all custom they are like $500+. I mean, of course I'll probably have to spend some cash to find a nice one. But I was thinking of finding a used one on Craigslist and Line-Xing it to match my bed anyways.

Just checked them out, nice but $$$.
$285 base bar with two light tabs.
$14 each for additional tabs - three for antennas - $42
Cross Bar for Window - $65

Thatís $400 plus shipping, like was said, $500 Bar by the time you get it.
Nice though, canít take that away, something to keep in mind if I hit the Lottery.

getting a used one is the way to go. i got my rollbar for 75 bucks. already had the light harness wired through it. you should be able to find a used one if you look around and want to save some $$$

Yeah I'm gonna keep my eyes open for a used one to pop up on Craigslist or something, then Line-X it. It'll look sick!

My buddy had sold me a Toyota one several years ago for $25 that was line-x'd. Didn't fit exactly but I made it work. I was looking at that site I posted for one but decided to go with a camper shell instead.

Well here it normally cost 475-500 to LineX a small truck bed. I'll get it for 375-400. I'm not sure about how much the roll bar will cost. :/

yeah i bet that would add up quick. maybe it would be worth it though, to drive an off-roading trail-eating black tank. :/ and i'm not being sarcastic.

Yeah I've seen a couple different kinds of the Line-X'ed trucks driving around. I've even seen trucks that are 100% covered. Ugly as sin, but could take a beating I bet.
