Honestly - if you want to buy one, youll have to order form somewhere out in Cali, or FLorida - those are about the only two places I have ever found lightbars for sale - I wont personally buy one for my truck in that style - i woudl rather just a headache rack with some auxillary lights on it.

You want a lightbar/rollbar or do you want a headache rack??? Two different designs.



My headache rack is a ProTech aluminum one. Check out protech.net

You have an 08 ranger that probably has less than 30k miles on it, what kind of real work have you done to it to put your "blood and sweat" into it, i know there are mods you can do for this, but it looks pretty stock...

I've put more blood, sweat, tears, curse words, and my own feces in my Ranger that that is probably why I don't even want to touch it. Not in a mechanically inclined way, anyway

Last thing I want to hear is some newbie with a brand new truck telling somebody else they haven't done **** to theirs.
