Default Westin Safari Bar fit check

Hey guys, I was wondering if it was possible to fit a Westin Safari light bar on the front of a 2000 Ranger 4x4 without removing the big stainless skid plate. Let me know because if it is possible, I found one for only $100 and I would definately want it.

I am almost positive you have to remove the skid plate. The plate would cover the parts of the frame that it hooks up to. On the Westin website it says that these are for trucks with out the skid plate and it would need to be removed in order to install.

Its not $100. The mounting kit is sold seperatly on that site. Is that where you are planning on buying it? I know you can find them on ebay with the mounting kit for pretty cheap but not for 100 bucks

The mounting kit was $50 on that site. I'm not gonna order it, I'm not gonna take out my skid plate for it, Just not worth it.
