Brush Guard. I have seen bull bars and the 3" tube makes it look too big for a small truck whereas a brush guard only has 1.5" tubes.

Im ordering this one tonight for my truck.
(the picture is different than the one im getting, scroll down)

X2!!! I got a bull bar on mine. Grill Guards look way to big for a ranger. Those look better on a fullsize imo.

I like the brush guard better. I've done the bull/light bar before and was not enough. A personal choice I guess...

id go brush guard, i love mine, plus option for lights.. you can buy modular ones that come in like 7 pieces so you can change the look from a strait brush guard to more of a bull bar style look too.
