    Most manufactures make covers. Just check the website of the brand light bar you have.

    For protection? I say don't worry about it.. Not to be rude or anything but, I don't understand why people get covers for their bars for "protection".. Reason being that it would take a huge amount of force to break the lens. I understand covers for legality purposes in places that require them though. Or if you're worried about the finish chipping.. But random pebbles or rocks on the road shouldn't be breaking it. I would be more concerned with other things breaking. BUT, if you still want a cover, I doubt any random one will fit as covers are designed to fit specific brand bars. So unless they make one for that bar, you'll have to make something. I've just recently found that some people are using the rare earth magnets adhered to the front rim of the bar, as well as a custom cover they cut to fit, and slapped that on there. Just an idea for you. Or there was a guy who formed a long plastic piece in the shape of a 'U' to kinda wrap around the top and bottom, cut some slots out in a couple places in the plastic, and used some Velcro straps looped through and around the bar to strap it on. Anyways.. good luck.
