    Sweet rig mang. Can't wait to get my relentless bumper. Any time now.. Been waiting since black Friday. Ha. But yeah, been thinking about how to reinstall my lights. Gonna be doing some custom rectangular cutouts for 8" bars where your stock signal cutouts are. So excited. Your truck looks great.

    Where did you buy the light bar?
    What other materials/parts are needed to install to the frame? This is my first light install. Thanks

    That's the lightbar...you'll also need a wiring kit sold seperatly. To mount it I ditched the mounting hardware it came with and used 2 3×1 inch pieces of flat straight aluminum. Mounted it straight to the frame once the bumper is off. Bumper will be able to go back on like nothing was done. You'll need a drill and some good drill bits to mount the mounts.

    Still dig your setup mang. Especially the pillar lights. It inspired me to, ditch, my ditch lights I had. Lol. And will be installing dual pods on each pillar. Although they'll Just be single row pods with two 10watt leds each. Just haven't got around to it yet. Ha.

    Thanks. I like how clean your install looks. Ima try the same on my truck. As far as the wiring, did you follow a write up here or did you DIY? Ive seen a few Youtube install voids but I'm just curious how you wired yours? Type of Relay, switch and wire routing?

    Thanks!
