    I have been looking around and seeing all kinds of light bars for these trucks, and what I am wondering is what is all of your favorites and why? I want to get one, I just can't decide on which is the best. Any input is appreciated.

    RandyEllis FTW, it's mounted at 6 points. 2 at each aluminum bracket, and 1 point each to the frame. Got kicked out into a steep ass bowl in pismo and face planted the truck at the bottom going 25-35mph into sand trying to power out of the bowl. My bar is now moved 1/2 inch to the left. but the truck is fine.

    NFab for me too. It's small, sleek, and pretty sturdy.. and doesn't look like a huge chunk of metal on your bumper.

    If I had my time back I prolly would have gotten the N Fab. Randy Ellis / KC Light Bar decreases your approach angle. I removed mine yesterday actually. Maybe time for something different?:confused:

    Thanks everyone for your input... I actually think I am going to go with the N-Fab based on Fortech's answer. I dont really like how it hangs out from the bottom of the bumper like that...

    x2. I had the RE Bar and hated the fact it decreased the approach angle. I had it on for about 6 months before removing it.


    I now have the NFab bar in my garage awaiting some lights. :D
