Nice setup! i finally was able to get to installing the BAMF bar/mount and light. Took me about 2 hours.

Question for you guys-
If i just hook the lights up straight to the battery, the switch has a RED LED that keeps on. Will this dramatically affect my battery? Also, if there is a wire in one of those harnesses in the fuse box I can tap into for ACC power which one is it? I don't have a volt meter and I dont want to tap into the same wire my anytime fog mod is in.

Otherwise, light it awesome just want it to shut off when my key is out, just need to locate the ACC wire.

Oh yeah, my factory grill blocks out some of the middle of the LED light might be time for a grille upgrade

I am currently using two of those switches. They have great diagrams here. http://www.otrattw.net/wiring-diagrams.html just click the link to the switch you have

Thanks for the link but unfortunately they don't have one listed for the switch I wanted but I think one of the diagrams should be close enough.

The red led will have a negligible draw on your truck battery, you may need a different wiring harness if you want to hook it up to ACC.

So I ended up not going with the OTRATTW switch because I dindt want to do any filing of the slot. I went with Air on Board switch because they are oem style and dont require any mods to the dash. The only issue is that it has a little wiggle.
great price. Has parking light red, and on green. They also have it in blue.
To get the switch illuminatd when the lights are on, I tapped the blue wire of the switch into the solid green wire of the traction control button next to it.

Took about 35 mins in all.

And if anyone can tell me how to fix the stupid pictures loading sideways or upside down from my iphone 4s i would greatly appreciate it. I tried editing it and rotating and rebuilding the thumbnail but still comes out like this. Crappy iphone

Got mine last week but it got delivered to my office and I've been fighting the stomach flu for days now. Finally got a chance to get it and it's gorgeous! Can't wait to feel better so I can install it. Thanks Calvin!

Thumbs up BAMF Light Bar Install

I finally got around to installing my BAMF light bar. I decided not to install it in the traditional manner, but rather made an "extension" bar to attach the BAMF bar to the frame (so it is mounted upside down) and the height is adjustable. It is SUPER sturdy and I also relocated the factory horns and three other additional horns to the lower cross bar that I made. I installed some Hella Black Magic lights so they appear very subtle behind the grill, not real flashy. I also painted everything behind the grill flat black. It turned out GREAT! Here are some pics:

Bummer. The only thing I don't like about this install is that the "BAMF" is upside down Maybe someone will see this install method and take them off your hands. I REALLY like the way it turned out but it is a bummer that the BAMF stuff isn't in a more visible place! QUALITY workmanship AND materials!

Why when I go to your website does it sat the bar mount is on sale for 61$, then when I add to cart and go to check out its 91$?
