Will this fit a 2014DCSB TRD with factory skid plate?

Do I need to pick out lights prior to ordering? I have never had aftermarket lights so not real sure about the "tabs" I am reading about.

I notice it is not offered painted. Suggestions? I want non-glossy black.

Thanks All!
it should fit perfectly fine with the factory skid plate although it might have to be removed for the install of the light bar. Having the "tabs" added to the light bar just gives you the option to add additional lighting (KC Lights, Hella lights, etc) with secure mounting options. there aren't specific lights that you have to order or have to utilize these tabs. For paint i would suggest either spray liner or powder coating for a durable and tough finish

good luck

Painting my Avid parts now. They're incredibly well built. I was hoping for some stickers, but alas, there are none.

That might be all I need. They would probably need to be pushed wider because in CA you have to have your front license plate mounted. Could you measure the distance between the top and bottom bar? I wonder if I can fit LightForce 170s..?

Thanks
