Is this a good deal

Ok, I cant seem to find a price on a new one soooo, is this a good deal? I found a rollbar thatll fit my truck and is the style I want. The guy wants $50 for it. Now I know thats good, BUT.... After I drive to go pick it up and come back I will have another $40 in gas to add to the total. So im looking at $90 for a rollbar. Is that still a good deal? How much do they normally run new? Im searching online but cant find them new, maybee im looking wrong.

50 is about right. The resale on rollbars by me is very low. I think I sold mine for 40 or under.

To be honest with you, I'd save the $ for something worthwhile.....a rollbar on a 2500 is going to look silly IMO. Save youre money for some Mustang wheels or something like that.....just my $0.02.

^^^ He never said that it will look stupid on a Mazda but not a ford. They both have the same engine.

Yeah exactly, to each his own. I just dont think rollbars look good whatsoever, especially on little Rangers and B-Series. I myself have a Mazda so I'm not like, trying to put you down or whatever. Just giving my opinion on whether or not it was a good deal.
