Default ?Will it fit? roll bar

Hi ive literally been looking for like 4 strait days for a way to have off road lights on the roof of my ranger. the only good option i have found is the gorhino roll bar.
My delema is that i am unsure if it will fit/look right, or seriously damage my bed liner. i was thinking maybe jus cutting out the parts that the roll bar would sit on but wouldnt that allow the bed to rust much more? opinions plz, thx.

To answer your question about will it fit

lol but more seriously now... i think cutting the bed liner wouldn't be too bad other than now there is a spot where water can get in and get trapped under the bed line... what if you just installed the roll bar and did a spray in liner or a DIY roll in herculiner? i believe Clinton has done the roll in herculiner (as well as many others on here) and he said he loves it

ya i hear on that, but if it is going to cause trapped water than eventually it will rust easier so it might be the only option... you could always sell the bed liner you have to get some cash for the new spray in or roll in one

ya maybe you could cut it and get a flexible sealant to seal it up around the hole... like a silicone construction sealant

----------

or if you just cut a hole the size of the head of the bolt then the roll bar would probably just sit right on top of the bead liner... just make sure there is enough threads on the bolt going into the nut... you may just need a longer bolt

that was what i ran into ive got $700 bed liner on mine was not about to mess up. mine sits on the floor on the bedon the pipe as it runs down and the down bars just on the bed not attached. what holds it in is it has a tight fit to each side of the bed. and on both sides i have pipe clamps attached the that 1inch lip hangin down on the inside of your bedcap.

I bought the pipe from a scrap yard got 30ft( way to much) for 22bucks. muffler shop bent the tube for me for 10. had a buddy weild it for me since i dont have a weilder. the primer and paint. i wanted to buy one but at 550 bucks i was not about to.

look at my pics you can get an idea. if you want more pics PM me and let me nkno il show you some more up close.if you would like
