Brush guard, I like the full protection, but the bull bars are a cleaner look

Most states now have laws about altering your headlights from factory design with out a DOT approval, so putting HIDs in your Ranger, which was never a factory option in most states are illegal, now if you had a Caddy, and say you bought the base model that didn't have the HIDs and decided to put them in you could probably get away with it. They have these laws because people complained how bright the lights were, because they can be blinding to other drivers.
