My truck has a twin now, almost. Do you have a problem with wobble out of the bumper? You might need to weld extra brackets to the fram and bumper to reinforce it a little bit.

im not having any problems with it wobbling the top bracket is mounted onto the bumper where its steel and the bottom bracket only has one bolt because the lower part of the bumper is plastic but its pretty sturdy i sit and shake it to test it and no problems i just have the urge to go ram something now... lol

nice installations,but imo,that is one horrible looking light bar. looks like a cow catcher on a train if you flipped it down.

Just doesn't flow with the Ranger body style.
