The Jegs part# is 976-71370 and its now $259. The Steelcraft # is 71370. You might be able to find one cheaper somewhere else. Its a nice bull bar.

Did you have to cut anything when you installed this one?

The install was pretty simple with no cutting just unbolting and bolting on brackets. It took about 45 minutes and that was only because I very picky about having things straight and square.

The picture shows that your license plate view is partially blocked.
Was it just the angle you used or it is blocking the view?

Yep that might get you a ticket in states requiring a front plate. It looks good but if it's flimsy I wouldn't want it.

My Steelcraft bar is rock solid. Yes some of the plate is blocked but I will deal with that issue when it arises.

I love mine and the Wife averted being thrown out of the house when she "bumped" the garage with the bull bar. Now she's onto scraping the fence in her Sport Explorer. UGH.
Any ideas on lights to mount onto the bull bar? Looking for hardy and bright lights that wont break the bank.
THanks

I've been looking for LED lights for mine. Rigid has a light bar and bracket that attaches but it's a lot of money. There are other companies with LED bars but I haven't seen brackets to use with them. Hopefully this doesn't start the war of Rigid vs non-Rigid LED lights LOL.

Mine has Big Country bar. It's sturdy and good for climbing on, it doesn't move.

Thumbs up Just installed my Bullbar

I just installed my SteelCraft Bull Bar (STC-71370) that I bought from RealTruck.com.
Helpful hints. There was a thin retaining washer that preventing the 2 bolts on each side of the bumper from being removed on my truck. I had to use a screw driver to prevent the retaining washer from spinning so that the bolt can be un-threaded off of the retaining washer.
Also if you are required a SteelCraft Bull Bar License Plate Relocator Kit (STC-70000) You might consider installing this onto the Bull Bar prior to the Bull Bar being installed onto the truck. It is just easier to remove the allen screw at the bottom of the Bull Bar while it is uninstalled.

The Bull Bar is very good quality.
Price was $265.89 for Bullbar & Lic plate bracket kit.
