Roll Pan. Need help.

Ok, So I'm finally replacing my rear bumper with a roll pan, and I need help deciding which one looks better.
So, without further ado, here are the contenders.

Street Scene:


Xenon:


Sir Micheals:


What is your preference? The Sir Micheals is steel, while the other two are urethane. The steel will require a bit more finishing. The Xenon uses the stock plate lights, the other two will need lights added. Price is not an issue, as they are all about the same price. Help me out here! Thanks!

I like when I get comments like man I didn't know that was an option for the ranger! and personally that's the best comment on any mods made to a vehicle

I like the Xenon for the same reason that blackranger02 does. If you don't go with the Xenon, go with the Street Scene. The Sir Michaels looks to plain and boring.

Well I know it doesn't count for much but I went with the Sir Michaels looking one even though I was able to get a steel one on ebay for like $70 bucks or something because I was able to tweak it and still put my spare tire back under my truck whereas the other roll pans it's impossible to remount your spare. On mine there is 7 holes on the top of the rollpan where it screws in, I shimmed the middle out to make it a little rounder looking and then I riveted the sides of the rollpan to the rear fenders so it didn't flap and then I was able to get the spare in place after using a hammer and bending the part of the spare tire part of the frame I had to cut back out. Hope that helps at all.

Thanks! It looks like the Xenon is winning, wich personally, I think looks great! The one big advantage of the street scene one is that I can run a hidden hitch behind it. I don't know if I can on the Xenon.
I just found one that is alot cheaper and I can get locally. The only thing is, they don't have a pic of it on their website, and it has to be ordered. So if I order it, I'm stuck with it. I couldn't find a pic of the Ranger application, but here is the pic from their website, so it should look something like this.

Thats on a chevy.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody know where the "spare tire relocation kit" puts it? I can run the pan without moving the spare, but if I want the hidden hitch behind the pan, I'll have to relocate.

Get a grant customs rollpan with a compound curve in it to match the gate

they look weird when the rollpan is straight flat across the back and the gate is curved.

Mark. Have you used the Grant roll pan? How much finishing is required before painting? I'm on a limited budget, and If I buy the grant, which looks like a really nice product, I'll have less left to finish it.
