Push bars?

Hey guys
it's been awhile since I've been on the forum my wife and have moved to the country...so now it's time to start looking at adding to the truck.
so...
anyone know of any good parts suppliers in and around the Bradford ,Ont areas?
how many of you have a bull bar onthe front of your rangers? and if so can you upload a pic so I can see how it would look if you don't mind
thanks
Glenn

Thanks for the reply
I went to the website and found they are almost $400
Unless I can find cheaper may have to wait

What's the purpose you have in mind? I haven't seen an actual off-the-shelf push bar -- at least not the kind you could actually push anything with. Most of them seem to attach to the frame with two stamped steel bolt-on brackets. I doubt they'd hold up to any kind of impact.

Unless your intention is just cosmetic, or something to mount lights? There are different and cheaper ways to mount lights on the front.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

Hey
yes mainly cosmetic , I have my tow ball on the rear incase anyone hits me atleast it will hopefully take some of the impact...lol
Just like to look at customizing my truck alittle.
Havn't found many online customizing options for rangers so I'm limited

Hey Glenn maybe you should trade the ranger for a F150 there's lots of stuff out there for the big trucks

If I was to spent $400 I'd get one made which would be totally stronger and unique, which I might eventually.

Lumberjack...we all know them F150 are too big for most trails...that's one reason I love my Ranger. Wish I could afford an older Jeep though for my insane passion so that I stop destroying the Ranger but then I like to put things to the test.
