A few simple mods.

I'm wanting to add a few things to my 2WD 94 ranger. I want to add a billet grille but I want one with the ford emblem on it. I dont like the looks of the ones without it. Also do they make billet grilles that bolt on instead of zip ties?
I been looking for a bull bar or safari bar for it but nobody makes one for a 94. I was also wondering if a safari bar would look odd on a truck at normal height. I can make one no problem but I need some ideas for the design and how to mount it to the frame. Anybody with 94 with a billet grille or safari bar please show some pics
Suggestions?
Thanks.

Billet grilles usually don't come with emblems....but.......the stock ford emblems are mounted using studs molded to the back of the emblem, and bolts on using speed nuts. Jam the studs through the billet, throw on the nuts....bam! you've got an emblem on your billet grille.

That sounds easy enough. I still dont like how they mount with zipties though.
About the safari bar though, I would like to make my own. I could make one jsut as good as a bought one for a lot cheaper too. Im Just not sure how they are mounted on to the frame. Any info or pics on that would be cool.

This guy mounted a westin bar for a 98 on a 97. So now I know its possible. But I cant see paying 250+ for one of those. Im going to make me one I think. Is there anywhere where I can get measurements for these things?

it is not hard to put a billet grille in,, i put one in a parking lot at my college with just a screwdriver.. without using zip ties... it would take a real lazy person not to do it right... lol, should be on the 94 2 bolt holes that will line up with the new grille from the stock grille.. the other 2 u can drill out
