Well I want this bumper but wanted the tube angled forward and raised. I also wanted the tube to be more fit to wrap around headlights but they dont want to do it.
I am starting to think it would be a lot easier to take it in and have a tube style done up.
Shipping is a killer.
I really like this one though.
Still waiting on more pics and info

Tell them to grow a pair, and if they want your business they'll do it.

They don't cater to the Ranger owners really. If you're talking about C4x4 that is. Custom work from them would cost you way too much anyway. You could have the tube bent up locally or have someone like Zabeard do it for you for cheaper. I modded the foglights into mine by myself. Super easy.

Save your money for a skidplate instead of the tube.

I know the shipping is EXPENSIVE!!!

The tube on top doesn't hide any frame.. lol


He'd be much wiser to save that money to put towards fabbing up a skidplate, IF he plans to actually use the truck/bumper like it was meant to be used.

Yeah the hole idea is a better approach, and I really need front winch. Often go out with just my truck and are limited.
I am going to go with the add bar later idea I think. We have been bargauining back and forth and if this last offer works out it will finally be gettin made.

Keep in mimd that the foglights I modded into my bumper don't throw a lot of light. Regardless of the bulbs wattage, they're just in a bad location to throw a lot of light down the road. My foglights on top of the bumper do that for me. The recessed ones are really nice running lights though. They light up the road down low, for about 10-15 feet out, and to the side of the truck, very well.
