light bar on bull bar?

I know most don't like bull bars. But Im wondering if you can mount a light bar to the two pre cut holes and how? What length?

Most of the bull bars have light tabs built in, or the holes you're speaking of are accessible from the bottom so you can install a pair of lights. I don't believe I've seen a bull bar that didn't have light mounts built in.

Your right. I'm wondering about a light bar tho. I've seen then with the two lights but I'm trying to do one light bar. Seeing if that's possible

Ohh okay that'll clear up a lot of confusion lol.
I don't see why not. Just either fab up brackets yourself or goto a local fab shop to make you some and measure how long of a light bar you can fit and wah lah light bar

Good call! I had no clue what he was getting at

Depending on the mounting point, you might have to get creative to mount an LED bar on a bull bar. You might have to get clamps that clamp to the center bar on the bull bar with a tab sticking out the back to mount the LED onto, or weld on your own tabs.

That's what I was hoping to avoid. May have to rethink the bull bar. Appreciate it
