Default whats that bar called?

hey guys,
i got another question for you. I was wondering what those bars in the back of a trophy truck are called. or if it is a part of the roll cage. i was thinking about making one and throwing some fog lights on. i have no experience with fog lights and i think they look cool.

Got a pic? Sounds like a bed cage/roll cage...but not sure. Why would you want to put something like that in if you are just going to use them to hold fog lights? Be easier to mount them below the bumper...

----------

Wait I think I was mistaken...you mean a light bar? Goes over the roof or sometimes part of a roll bar in the bed?

like this:

Fog lights must be mounted down low to under cut the fog, so they must go on the bumper. Preferably below the bumper.

Off road lights can go on the bar you are thinking about. The higher you can mount them, the better. I think they are called an over cab light bar. Try checking out JC Whitney or some off road web sites on that.

ok so i checked it out and the ocer cab light bar was what i was talking about but the more i think about it i kind of want to do the fog light suggestion... is it easier to do either one... also can i fab a light bar up myself? i have a shop full of tools and if i dont have the tool i know someone who does. if not where can i get a cheep cattle guard?

What about a Westin Safari light bar? JC Whitney and Summit Racing sell them.

dont get me wrong i love the billet grill and yes i am looking at getting one. that is a really cheap price for one so i will end up l8ter in time getting one. i am pretty short on funds (in between jobs). but it is not the bull bar i was looking for you know. i just want a place to put my fog lights. mostly just because i want to hook up the switches and stuff to see how that is all done. so once again i am asking if there are any bull bars out there for a 92 ranger but i really appreciat that post 05ranger thanks

I wasn't trying to show you the billet grill lol. I was just trying to show you the push bar on the front of the truck . Did you not see it?

This is what i was talking about


I had a black version


I that aint what your looking for I would see if you could just fab up some brackets to make the newer style like you want mount up to your truck.
