    Hi! I was just curious if anyone has installed a 2012+ light bar (by N-Fab) to their truck, and if so, how the install went. Any drilling? Does the grey, plastic valance under the bumper need to be removed? Bar secures to frame easily? How's it look?

    Thanks for any info! Sean

    I did looks good. No pics yet. Install was pretty easy. No drilling. Some bolts and nuts are easier to access from top and some from the bottom. Bar fits around the grill. Mine has license plate tabs. I did not use them. I wish the dealer had not drilled holes in my bumper. I could have drilled them lower and plate would be 100% visible. I used the dealer holes. The little light tabs obstruct the plate. So far no problem. In Texas I do not think the LEOs mess with front plate infractions.

    Thanks for the great info! Did you have to remove the grill or bottom bumper at all for install?
