    So i made a satoshi the other day, and me and my buddy made a light bar that fits behind the grill. They look good, and work perfectly. Wanted to see if anyone on here would be interested in one. Thinking maybe I can make a little extra cash..

    Anyways here what they look like. The first 2 pictures are of the 1st one made. The next ones(one I have, is longer and has rounded edges, looks better)

    These bars can hold up to 4 lights.

    Heres the one i have, sorry for the pictures. I didnt want to take my grill off.

    looks good man. just some input tho, i made a light bar like this as well, and used the exact same mounting points.. i found that with the lights mounted and driving offroad, they would jiggle alot.. so i added two vertical pieces to make it solid. good luck! :thumbsup:

    no prob.. i just used smaller and thicker angled aluminum for the vertial braces, drilled and bolted into the light cross bar, and drilled and bolted into two existing holes on the bottom cross brace. hard to tell in this pic.. forgot to take some when actually building it.

    the gap from the radiator to the holes is about 3.5-3.75 inches. However we can always make it sit further away..
