Bull Bar Comparison

Any thoughts on which bull bar to buy for my 2008 SCREW FX4?? Westin has the standard and Ultimate. Aries looks the same and is cheaper. Ant thoughts on the light package would be appreciated, as well.

THANKS!!

I've got the Ultimate Bull matched with KC driving lights. I considered the Aries because of price, then I noticed one on a local truck that has some rust on the skid plate.

That's the best looking one I've seen. Wouldn't look right on mine, but sets yours off nice!

Chrome Hunter Bull Bar - $219 w/ free shipping

Black Hunter Bull Bar - $169 w/ free shipping

^^^ up there is an awesome bull bar. I bought one in the Spring of 2007 and love it. I can jump on the thing with my full 270 lbs and it doesn't flex at all. Comes with all new mounting hardware (I re-used my tow hook bolts though) and it is 1/4" plate steel mounts.

only 2 problems are:
1. it doesn't come with a skid plate. but if you can get your hands on some diamond plate, it would be really easy to make your own
2. you lose your tow hooks if 4x4...sucks
and now for some pics

Ranch Hand all the way.

Get something that will actually protect your front end! Ask me how I know that mine works!

I had a Tal & Hadas on my Sport Trac a few years ago and really liked the looks and the quality was top notch. It is a little pricey though.

Atta boy pb lol

I was on the phone when I typed that so that's why I had such a short/kind of d*ckhead response.

Anyway, some chick clipped my truck taking a left. The pictures tell the rest of the story.
