    Im looking at the Smitty Built Black bull bar at 4wheelparts.com. Im about to order it, but does anyone know why it's only $150 with free lights and the Weston (which looks identical) is $350 or so?

    I had experience with Smitty and its very poor quality... Smitty = $hitty
    I had a pair of black powder coated step bars for my truck and they rusted to hell. It was not due to lack owner maintenance but the poor quality of the product.... You do get what you pay for imo

    why do you want a bull bar? for light a light bar would be better. people complain about little fender benders with bull bars and that they do more damage than harm.
