Definetly not. At least on my truck that would be a big negative. Roof bars look good but the hood thing not really. At least that's my opinion.

+1, i think it'd look pretty bad. Jeeps can pull off a lot of stuff most trucks cant, for some reason..Like you can't mount a high-lift jack onto the roof of a ranger..but on a jeep it looks badass lol

Plus imagine all the glare you would get off of the hood from the lights.

I have alot of glare on about 50% of my hood from my roof lights wouldnt want to mount any to the hood. thats why those lights on the pillers on jeeps the KC's you can get bottom shields to stop some of the glare off the hood

No way that would look horrible on a ranger. Get one so we can point and make fun

LOL J/K but really I think wranglers get away with a lot of stuff other trucks and SUV's could never do

no, the hood on a ranger is too curved, therefore you have to put them on swivel brackets, and going off roading, they would jump out of place. too small for the lights and everything, and wireing would be a problem
