I bought a front skid from that Jason guy that makes them and sells them on the forum.

I have never seen a front skid on any rangers in the junk yards.

I see that, I am subscribed to the thread lol.

Hey did u do thru the older posts to see pics??
He specially made one for me without the square holes and rci logo cut out, so its just a solid skid. I didn't have it painted, because i am working on a front hitch receiver and mount bars for my brush guard, so i will have to cut out notches in the sides and may have to do other modification and fabrication on it. But it's a good solid heavy plate and will look sweet.

Also i see u want a custom light bar on your bumper??

I could possibly, maybe, build u one pretty cheap.
Though right now i am super busy. But this fall/winter i could do it.

I would need to you to draw up prints and figure out how it mounts and give me measurements. I could use my truck, but not sure if ours is the same, plus I have a body lift and that changes stuff.
Also consider if u ever get a bl, u may not be able to use it, u would have to modify it.
I have access to lots of materials, machine shop mills, lathes, and welders.
Would u want it steel, stainless steel, or aluminum.
Steel would be the best bet, and u can paint it easy enough.
Plus I don't weld stainless or aluminum, would have to get and pay one of our welders to do that. But there are many options. I have access to powder coating too, but it's not cheap and usually takes 2 weeks. At work we send out all our machine frames to a place for powder coating, and I have a bud at another place that does powder coating. He's going to powdercoat my skids. He has a variety of colors.

Here ya go.

Yea you should look into this bar! I betcha it would sell pretty good!!! I wouldn't be opposed to aluminum but whatever works will be alright with me! I like that design in the picture, tube with 4 tabs off the back and the ends of the tubes are closed. Then the mounting brackets go under the grill and mount to that hard fiberglass structure that's in front of the radiator

Charlie pm me and give me ur cell number.

Also figure out how wide/long u want your front tube to be, by how wide your lights are and how far/close u want them mounted to each other. I can get some round OD tubing at work and cut to size. Then get some tabs for clearance holes for the light bolts, and weld the tabs in place at the measurements. Then maybe at a meet i can bring it and we can put it up to the truck and take some measurements for the mounting brackets. I should be able to make it for u for under $100.

So its a round tube, with 4 welded on tabs off the back. Then in the small drawing that is the side, it will come down at an angle and go between my grille and the bumper. I'll get ya some dimensions, but I'm at work so I just whipped that together quick haha, just to give you a better idea

Charlie is this the look you are going for?

It mounts to the tow hooks I believe.
