    I have nothing negative about it. And i know for sure that by having it closed when going through the mud has saved me. unlike a CAI where its always open

    Light bar is homemade out of aluminum, don't know the thickness with 3 brackets to support it. Since Grillcraft goes on the front of the grille surround you can clear the KC's
