Default 1994 Ranger needs a cow bar

Hi together,
wasnt here long time, but the Ranger is still my lovely daily car.
Here in Germany i really get problems with spare parts. Sure Rockauto delivers to Germany but big Parts are so expensive that i have to get what i can get in Germany.

I really would love to have a bullbar like this:

or this

There is nothing available in Germany for a 1994 XLT model. Im not sure if a bullbar (cow catcher?) from any other Car will fit.

Could anybody give me a feedback which type of bullbars will fit plug and play or be adapted?
Ford Ranger 98 for example?
Or Ford Explorer 95 ?

Any Information like mounting spots, drill hole distance etc. would help.

Altough sidebars would be fine, so if you know which one will fit here, please let me know


Thank you a lot in advance,
2Stroke

I cant answer your questions. But from somebody that has had this style before.....
dont expect to actually be able to use it for anything other than just looks. The brackets are flimsy.

Have you looked to see if the company ARB has anything that would work. I know they make bumper replacements for rangers outside of the U.S.

thanks for the Link to ARB. They have no cow bar (or is bull bar the right word?) for such an old ranger

Guess i have to modify the Version in any way

http://www.realtruck.com/aries-3-bull-bar/35-3009.htmlI have a 97 ford ranger that I put a bull bar on.. I bought it from realtrucks.com.. But the catch is that the bull bar is for a 98 model and up.. I bought it anyway knowing this and had my friend weld the brackets to my frame.. If you can weld, you can get it to work.. Here is a pic of my ranger with the bull bar I bought from Realtrucks.com
