yeah. the 49 inch is for the "full size" rangers. haha. i think you're sol buddy.. if you really wanted one, you could get some of the 15 inch ones.. but that'd be more expensive.. i dunno. i don't know if they make light bars that small. and dude. and if you find one, spend the extra 20 bucks and get the white lightning. the one with the reverse lights and the directional and everything. it's what i have and it's so cool and so nice. i love it. mine's recon tho.

A few members on Ranger - Forums have light bars on their stepsides/flaresides. I appears that Recon used to have a 36" model for a short period of time.

Here's some 36" options...

Does that come with some sort of special harness and you've got alot of tie-in's to seperate the signal feed from the brake feed? Since you've(and anyone with a 00+) have 2 bulb tails? One bulb does both running and brake light?

the light bar plugs into the trailer light plug in and the only thing that has to be hard wired into the truck is the reverse light

So when you hit the brakes, the amber comes on? That's not exactly legal...

Yeah. I'd love to see a vid of it and more pics of your superlift beast too! lol. I just have a hard time imagining how it decifers the difference between turnsignal and brake light because they're both fed through the same wire.

Vid please! lol. (and moar pics of your truck. haha).
