    Lift- king 2.5 with light racing uppers,tc coil bucket gusset, timbern bumps ,defined extended shackles with shackle brace. Armor- tire gate, custom tube bumper, kr fab rear bumper,trail gear wiy 78 in sliders Performance-intake manifold spacer, vibrant resonator as muffler, hps silicone hoses Random stuff- kenwood head unit,b&m t shifter, hood bug deflector, rear dust lights with custom bed bar and hi lift mount.
    its really easy to install the only hard part is put the bracket on and in my opinion is that you should save up for a bumper because those bullbars dont give you clearance and if you get an aftermarket bumper it gives you more clearance and they look way cooler

    Avid or n-Fab light bar. All of them are super easy to install. If you still decide on the bullbar, it's a no brainer for the install. Having extra hands when figuring out the angle and placement is helpful though.
