Default Westin Off-Road light bar

Hey guys,

Anyone own this or seen it on a ranger before? I was thinking of getting it for my 09 Ranger...but I'm concerned about the fit. Does anyone know where this light bar attaches?

Here's the link:

(It does say that it fits my truck...but I'm just wondering 'how')

Im curious about that too. Im tempted to order one. If it fits right i think it would look damn good with some hellas on it.

I was looking for a installation manual somewhere...I couldn't find even a picture of a ranger having it installed.

That picture might not be the actual application for the Ranger...but maybe it is? LOL. Yeah I'm trying to picture where those holes would bolt on...My guess would be it would bolt on to the front most part of the chassis...

(didn't realize it wasn't the exact one)

I was looking under my truck the other day...it seems there are holes at the front end of the frame to bolt this light bar into place...but I'm a skeptic, as always with the aftermarket lol

It is not that expensive and super easy to install. Only two bolts come out of the factory holes and get replaced with provided hardware.

I like bull bars but I'm going to have to agree with you.

I would check the Westin Website for fit guide. I can tell you it bolts on the crossmember the only interference only effects the tow hoop placement. They still fit they just need to be reversed.
