I just sold my KC light bar and 4 Hella 500's and am trying to decide what I want to do. Wanted a different light bar that didn't hang below the front bumper. Not sure what I want now. Ideally I would love to go with a ARB or All Pro front bumper, but no way the funds for that will be available any time soon. Anyone running the KC DayLighters? I also am looking at the Pro Comp 130's 8" lights.

I'm thinking about picking up the n-fab myself.

You guys who run 4 lights...any need to run a 2nd battery?

No cutting or drilling with the n-fab. Very easy install. No need for a second battery for me, I have 4 lights and have the trd sport. I think the upgrades in the trd package is a good help. (The Upgraded Alternator, etc.)

Ok, so how about stability on these bars? Any notice of them shimmyin and shaking while going down a washboarded road? Or do they old pretty still?

Both the N-Fab and the Defiant are pretty tits. Personally, I like the looks of the Defiant just a bit more, though..

How much did you guys spend on your light bars and lights? does the air damn plastic pop out pretty easily? Roughly how long did it take you guys to install the light bar and lights?

The light bar mounts go over the plastic part so there no taken parts off to get the light to go in, i have 2hella 500's and 2 of slimcubbys offroad HID built in ballast lights in the middle, the light bar should take less than 20min to do and the lights take your time and wire it correctly i had a buddy romancito install my lights. light bar you can buy directly from n-fab or stillen.com for $150-$160
