I'm wanting to add a little something to my 2010 F-250 PSD Lariat. I have been looking into the Westin bull bars, but wanted some input on which ones everyone likes. I like the idea of the Westin because I can add the Westin off road lights and not have to worry about them not fitting since they're the same company haha.
Also advice on good places to buy any aftermarket stuff would also be helpful, I got burned buying some bike parts a while back and have become a little gun shy when buying online.
When I had a shop, Weston was among my favorites. It was decent to good quality at a decent price. Now, Manik was what I considered top of the line, but you paid a heavy premium for it.
One reason Weston will remain on the top of my list is a little story from a few years back now. I got a call from Weston customer service (they call the shop I ran), they had a customer in my area that had a warranty issue. I was to give them a new set of bars and take the old ones. Weston rep arranged to have a new set shipped to me through one of my regular suppliers and I gave the customers the new bars. Warranty service like that and the reasonable prices make them a good choice in my book.
For places to buy, Your local Advanced auto and Autozone should have access to them. Advance uses the same distributor I used to use, Keystone Automotive. Keystone also has a front end for retail called DriverFx. I would suggest checking with your local parts stores, Keystone offered Free truck service to brick and motar stores they supplied with a few stipulations.
What are the stats on that one? Chrome over steel, Chrome over stainless, polished stainless, mild steel brackets, stainless brackets, Metric or SAE hardware? How was the install?
Polished stainless steel, 1/4" thick mounting brackets painted black, with metric hardware. I did not use the hardware that came with it as I opted to go with stainless and use SAE hardware. The install took me about 45 minutes and that was only because I really nit-picked all the measurements and distances from the grill and bumper.
