Hey Guys, I'm looking into buying a bull bar for my 2003 Sport trac with a 3 inch body lift. I was wondering whats a good brand of bull bars for my sport trac. I was also wondering if I'm going to have to change anything to make it fit with a 3 inch body lift.

Yeah since you have a bodylift you'll have to fabricate mounting brackets

I like the Westin Safari Bar. That's what I've got on mine. (No body lift though)

Yup, as Jerry said, fabricating mounting brackets will be necessary. I made mine of 3/16" steel plate. It's what I had laying around, and it's stout. More solid than the factory brackets on my wife's Westin on her Tahoe.

You'll also need to be comfortable with cutting some cladding, like this...

Bull bar or full brush guard is personal preference. I like my full brush guard, though.
