Icon5 Bolt up bull bar for 07 XLT

Looking for a bolt up bull bar

I understand some of them require cutting the lower valance.

Anyone have any recommendations?
I plan on mounting some off road lights on it as well.
The westin one doesn't look bad but with the lower plate between the arms it blocks the front license plate, and I would get haggled by the law.

Not quite a bull bar... but I'm pretty sure my Westin Safari Bar instructions said to cut the valence. I didn't... it just sort of pushes it up but it's not noticeable. As for the plate you could always just relocate it!

Thanks Adam,

that safari bar looks just like what i used to have on my explorer. i might go with that. do you have any pictures?

i have no plans on changing my grill, do you guys think i should go black powder coat or chrome?

my instinct tells me chrome since the grill is chrome but i think black could work because of the lower valance

I think chrome would go better with a chrome grille.

Here's the most recent pics!
