Both are very similar, so probably. Just to make sure. Go to a couple of sites and look up a brush guard for your Ranger and see what else is compatable with it. I believe www.summitracing.com offers that feature on their site, as an example. Also try jcwhitney.

No ! I got a deal on craigslist . I bought an explorer grill guard that is too short an will not fit , but looks like a perfect fit . The explorer mounts thru the lower grill an the Ranger mounts below the bumper . Buy a chrome or S.S. grill guard you'll like the looks better . Look at my avitar . Bud . I bought my .s.s grill guard years back ! You can get a s.s. for less than half price now about $ 4-500 now I gave about $ 1,150 for mine new . The new ones have less pipe or front end coverage or less bars in them .

Thats a Go-Rhino grille guard. It was expensive but definitely worth the money.




when this tree fell on my truck, the grille guard actually saved my truck from getting completely wrecked as it took most of the brunt from the fall. If I didn't have it on the branch would have crashed right through the front end and caving in my engine block.

That's why I have a guard !! Looks like the guard cut the damages . I didn't think about the top damage . I've had front end damage @ walmart due to other vehicle raming my front end during parking . They totally knock off the lower plastic in front an leave no names or insurance like a ghost in the nite . Since I've had the guard there's been no damage to my Ranger . Now I need a grill guard for my 2010 dodge caravan which no one makes . Good post . Thanks Bud
