roll bar guys, show some pix

well im going to get a roll bar for the truck.
i started to look into them but im not sure what i like yet.
i would like some people to show how they mount in the bed. im trying to keep the most bed space possible, and would rather have the back bar mount after the wheel well. i've seen grizzley's website, but any other company names you no of would help.
lets hear some input on them.

no but I can tell you that it is in even with the wheel well and as close as it can get without getting on it. It is a plate with 4 holes on each bar. I never have a problem with it taking up space and I have to haul stuff all the time.

Evan, just a heads up, try checking out pepboys. I noticed that they sell them for about 260 something.. It says on their site that they will fit a ranger. Id check that out. Maybe they can order one for ya.

Roll bars are awesome. I want to get one and put 5 lights on it.. That would be awesome.

haha, i was going to say you BETTER get the chrome!

nah, seriously, it would brighten up the look of the truck. Plus your wheels are polished, so it would match them...

I'm a big fan of headache racks. I'm gonna get the same one pictured below but add lumber stops and am going to have it powder coateded black like my toolbox.....I think tubular "roll bars" are for '80s toyotas.

They make Powder coat chrome. Looks good more like polish aluminum. You can not Powder coat over chrome though. From what I have read the extra heat weekends the chrome and it will flake anyways. Kinda like painting over something without sanding it. It will eventually still flake
