They should bolt right up to the screws that are used to secure the taillight inside where the bed meets the tailgate. GR8COM........truck looks great as usual. How you likin the 3rd brake light decal?

Open the tailgate and drill two holes per guard and they attach with self tappers. I then put clear silicone sealant around the screws to maybe help cut down on rusting.

I would have them on my truck if I had a front brush guard and some bigger tires... they would look goofy on my truck

Phil,

Manik makes tail light guards and grille guards like you want.
Diversified Four Wheel and Off Road can order them. I got the part numbers from their catalog.
They're on Mccord just north of Spring Meadows.

Tail Light Guard Part # 335059

Grille Guard Part # 335051

I got my brush guard off of Ebay actually. It was cheap and the company had free shipping on the brush guard from Texas. Don't remember who the maker is but it is great I love it. I think total it was like $250.00 or so.

I just put a set on my '08 sport. I got em from AZtruck.com. I originally tried to get the Westin sportsman ones to match my grille guard, but they were out of stock everywhere I tried to get them from. I was told by several vendors that Westin may no longer make them for rangers, either that or westin is waiting for more requests for them before they do another run. I ended up getting the Ares off road ones, they are, I was told, identical to the Westin ones, which yes they look the same but mount as described in an earlier post. the Westin ones, if you can find them mount using the existing tail light screws. I also think the powder coat and welds are superior on the Westin ones if the workmanship on the grille guard is any indicator. The ares ones I got are not fully welded all the way round the little guard bars and the powdercoat finish seems to be fairly soft. I may end up re welding them and having them re-powder coated if they get too beat up too quickly.
