Front bar

okay so im picking up a late model ranger 2001-04 and i was looking into front light bars and such. i like the look of the westin safari bar but ive heard they are cheap and not strong at all. i dont like the look of the full brush gaurds, and i read that the WAGG bars arnt made anymore? any suggestions guys?

the only front bar i like is the waag one and right now your best bet is to get one used since the group buys on gen edge seem to be done

Are you looking for something just to hold lights and for looks, or something stong? Nothing is super strong unless you go custom or with a different bumper. If you like the look of the safari bar, go with that.

Any front bar that bolts underneath reduces approach angle and I hate them for that reason. If you are serious about offroading, consider not adding anything that will impact your approach angle. There are other ways to mount lights. My .02...

You can check out my website on my car club's site www.protenomalie.com for some pics of my truck with a Westin Bull bar and a Waag bar. Now I have the Jusnes Light bar and 4 hella 500s
