Other light mounting options?

Can the light tabs on this bar be modified (special ordered maybe) so that the lights can be mounted "inside" the top loop of the bar?

Like this:


Sorry for stealing the picture... Hope you dont mind


OR if the lights could be mounted upside down from the normal tabs on the top of the hoop?

Do these come unfinished or do you guys paint/powdercoat them? I'd love to get a front+rear set but wish they were more like grill guards.

Couldn't you just mount the lights upside down from the top tabs??

Brandon, thanks again for a superior lightbar!
I'm in AL or maybe MS in the future, so no worries about the plate.

Brandon, I'm trying to keep track of the total weight of everything I add on my truck and was wondering what the individual weight of your Rear and front bumper guards are??

UPS shipping list said 32 lbs, obviously not correct! Thanks!!

i just posted pix of mine up on the boards... subject line 2012 avid light bars... front and rear.

just thought i would share so you could see

The 32 lbs is the weight of the light bar. The rear bumper guard is about 38 lbs. They're pretty close in weight.

Received my Avid Front Bar yesterday. Damn, It was very clean and well made. I did not have to prep to much prior to painting. Just wiped it down with some alcohol. Installed today. The fit was perfect. Getting to the bolts during install was difficult but doable with a bit of contortion.


A Big Thanks to Brandon for everything.
