It doesn't look right. Throw up some pics without the head light grills if you can, it might look better.

That does look better and with it being straight across like that, I don't think you'll need to worry about anything hitting your lights.

One made for a Ranger would probably look better but if you got a heck of a price for it, I would go with it.

Well, I did a little more cutting, welding, and fabbing last night, and I think I've got it to the point that it looks great...I'll try to get some photos up tonight
