Westins Ultimate Bull Bar adds extra front-end protection, maximum ground clearance and the perfect finishing touch to your truck or SUV. Bull Bars for full sized trucks & SUV’s are manufactured from 3 inch diameter tubing and introducing the new 2.5 inch diameter Bull Bar for compact, midsize trucks and SUV’s. Choose from chrome plated stainless steel or a black powder coat finish. Black molded end caps have been added to the crossbars and Westins logo is laser-cut into the stainless steel skid plate. Skid plate & Mount Kit included. Add a set of Westins Driving lights to complete that customized look. Rugged appearance appeals to active lifestyles.
Nice, clean accessory. Just limited front end protection; I'd like to see some way to protect more of the grille area, though its wraparound shape makes that a daunting task

Looks good, but not much protection
The bar was very easy to install. It took only about half an hour. I didn't really buy it to use as a push bar, which is fortunate because it wouldn't last very long in that application. Tubing is pretty light gauge and the mounting brackets have a fair amount of "adjustment" that would allow the bar to hit the bumper in any kind of significant impact.
The stainless steel "skid plate" is a nice touch, and adds considerably to the already good looks. But it is also thin and I wouldn't expect it to offer very much real protection.
The light mounts require you to put the nuts and washers for the lights up through a relatively small hole in the bottom of the tube they mount on, which can be a little tricky, but looks sanitary once it's done.
The tube diameter is almost too large, in my opinion, for the Dodge Dakota I mounted it on. The description said mini/mid size truck applications used 2.5" tubing instead of the 3" tubing used for full-size trucks, so I guess my Dakota is a full-size truck according to Westin. The 3" tubing still looks great, but I think the smaller tube would have looked even better.
I probably would have given it 4 stars, but I think the price is a little steep for what you get. For that kind of money, I expect something that offers some real protection. Also, it would be nice if some provision for mounting the front license plate were included, rather than being an additional-cost option.

It looks like it would be added protection for your front end, I think it's too light for protection, but looks great

This bull bar was very easy to install and has protected my front end during these past few winter months.

For LOOKS Only
Great Appearance, Design not heavy duty. After easy installation, appeared not to be useful for anything but looking at or mounting extra lighting.

Good looking grill
I purchased this Bull Bar and it has changed the look of my truck. I added a set of Pro Comp lights to enhanced the look, and it looks great. I've received many compliments on the look of the truck[...] I would recommend doing business with 4 Wheel Parts.
2000 F-150 4wd extracab. Please send any info that I may use to help me determine how this thing mounts and whether I will have to modify anything. I tried to tell from the photo, but it does not help. The info on your site is less than minimal. Does it mount in place of the two rings? The mounts appear vertical, so is drilling necessary?
none from on
The WES32-0240 is a NO DRILL install. It will mount where to tow rings are.
I could not find any instructions on Westin Automotive's web site.I was hoping to forward them to you. Westin's customer service and tech line is 800-345-8476
and they could answer you with more detail and email you the instructions.
These Bull Bars take about an hour to install and are not too difficult.
The skid plate is it removable?
