Default Question about Brush Gaurd

Hey everybody, pretty new to this but just had a question? I found a decent deal on Brush Guards close to my home town, only problem is just wondering if there was a way to make it fit my truck? This place sells a 04-07 F150, 06-07 Explorer, and 07 Explorer sportrac brush gaurd for only $150. Now I drive a 04Ranger (Edge) and those arent made for this truck obviously haha but I didnt know if there was anyway to make it fit? Thanks for all the feedback

All those may be to wide for your ranger front end. If it was about the same width you can always make something fit with fabrication.

This is made by westin I know you can generally find them on ebay and craigslist cheap. Ben got his for 50 dollars on craigslist

If you don't have any luck on Craigslist, I got mine, looks just like the pics above, brand new on ebay for 179.00 free shipping. More than $50 but still a good deal. It's my second one, and the first looks just as good as the new one.

You should look for one made for a Ranger. Yes, the one I got from Craigslist fit, because it was made for a Ranger -- I did have to do a bit of modding, though, as it's made for standard Ranger, and mine has a 3" body lift installed... so I had to fab the mounting brackets a bit so that it'd fit correctly.

there's no brand name stamped in it anywhere, and I didn't buy it new -- so I don't know!

it looks like it was modelled after the Westin brush guard, though.
