Default Re: Homemade light bar

stuff for your ranger used to sell the tabs and a light bar to go with them. the site is down now for maintenance apparently, so you may want to check on them later. It's were I got my light tabs and bar.

How thick were the brackets? 1/8 inch? Because I just ordered some lights and didn't want to drill holes in my bumper.

I like it, its pretty similar to what i did but I dont like the bar going across in the front

on mine I had that bar behind the bumper and I think it looks much better, just something to think about . It wouldn'nt be hard to switch


I like it though. Nice job


Heres mine
