Brush Guard pics...

I'm lookin' for some pics of brush guards on newer Rangers. I'm considering having one custom built similar to the Warn Transformer but, I want to see other versions. My main goal is to have a 2" reciever on the front that will fit a Ramsey Winch on a cradle (again similar to the Warn setup)and 2-4 off road lights. Also, if anyone has any pics of the mounting brackets both on or off the truck that would be awesome. Any pics would be awesome. Come on all you people who love pics of thier trucks

Thanx in advance,
Johnny Kacir IV

Here is the WAAG bar, they dont make these any more, but you were talking about making your own. you could probably find somone on the site who is selling thiers, but i wouldnt reccomend attaching a winch to it. I would custom build one thats simular in style, but stronger for a winch.

That's an idea. I like that bar style. Do you recall how it mounts?

Thanx,

Here is how it mounts. These brackets that i used are a little different then the "stock" brackets because i have a body lift and had to customize it, but its basically the same concept.

Excellent pics guys, keep 'em coming.

Rangererv, Great pic of the brackets, I'm guessing the added material is the hockey stick shaped piece bolted to the welded section? Where does it bolt to on the truck? Do they have bolts going into the bumper as well?

Thanx again,
Johnny K

Nothing bolts to the bumper, only the frame. There already holes in the frame so no drilling is needed. This picture shows you what is added because of the body lift, and what piece bolts to the frame.

its hard to see what is going on in this picture, but here is the bracket attached to the frame. the long silver piece is what it looks like before i painted the added piece.
the piece with the blue tape on it is bolted to the frame.

Excellent pics. I think I've got a pretty good idea of the setup right now. You have no idea how much of a help this has been. I'm going to go out Tuesday and scope out the truck frame to see exactly what I need. Thanx again.

heres the same waag, on a 04 model





the brackets are not in the way of the front skid plate, which was a concern I originally had. looks like I got about an inch clearance between the brackets and the plate.
