Dunno if you could get 4 lights on a ranger. Be a tight fit with the way that bar is. I got some tube and a bender. I might try to make something thursday.

I was thinking the same thing Nick. I have actually been thinking it for a while and was planning on having one made eventually. Heres my idea. Get some thick flat stock and cut it and drill it so you have two rectangle pieces that bolt to where the stock tow hooks went, then off of that weld a piece of tubing that comes out and straight up to about the height of the top of the bumper or lower if you want. Then either just a flat piece of tube welded horizontally across with little light tabs welded to it or the same with some more bending tube over the lights similar to the Fabtech light bar. Then it would be stong and hopefully look good too.

Like this (but probably a little lower, and sorry for the 30 second rendering lol)

3 lights

ya i think 2 or 3 lights would be good.

and it sounds good to me korey but i dont have anything to build it with. looks like it would be easy to make though. the one you drew looks cool but it looks like the fabtach one. i was thinking of something a little more simpler. but that one still looks good

I could probably make something similar to that. Mount it to the tow hook bolts.

The x2 was for mounting it to the tow hook mounts and Zach building it.

Yeah, I think it would look good without the bars on top too and am not sure if I am going to have it made with or without the bars when I have the $ to get one made.

I bet one of the guys on FTS could make one for you, they do all that crazy tube work on their rear ends sometimes. Start a thread there.
