Of all the WARN mounting systems, the Trans4mer Mounting System offers the most versatility. It can be configured in dozens of different ways to match how you work (or play) with your truck. GRILLE GUARD - The foundation of the Trans4mer System. The grille guard comes with two uprights and two crossbars, and bolts directly to the vehicle frame. It is a required component because it provides the base for all other options. BRUSH GUARDS - Add style and protection with brush guards that complement your vehicles lines. WINCH CARRIER AND SST CARRIER COVER - Dor a fixed winch mount, you'll need to add the Winch Carrier. You'll also want to take a look at the stainless steel SST Winch Carrier Cover. It bolts over the carrier to give a smooth, contoured and integrated look to the Trans4mer. For a portable winch mounting system, choose the Front Receiver. This 2 Class III Receiver bolts directly to the grille guard in place of the fixed mount winch carrier. LIGHT MOUNTING OPTIONS - For lighting up the night, a light bar, with two mounting tabs, can be easily added to the Trans4mer system. Or for applications with space limitations, Warn Industries makes special L brackets to mount lights from the sides of Grille Guard. POLISHED STAINLESS OR BLACK POWDER COAT FINISH - Whether you choose a Trans4mer system in powder-coated black, stainless steel or a combination, you'll be getting a simple, bolt-on system that installs around the factory bumpers.
To my knowledge, this is the only brush guard strong enough to support winch use. It utilizes well designed brackets to use existing bolt locations on the frame. Installation only took a few hours with only one person.
In addition to looking great, it makes an excellent winching platform.
The only thing that I don't like about it is the reduced approach angle as this sticks out about a foot beyond the front bumper.
I am buying for a 98 ford ranger xlt ext cab 4x4. Does this include the mounting system and brush guard? or is it just the brush guard. i can't figure it out from the description. if not, what is the mounting system link i can't find it on site. thanks johnny

stoopidjohnny the Warn Trans4mer Brush Guard par number WAR30146 is for the brush guard only and it does include the mounting hardware. Here is a link to the instructions WAR30146
In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
