    The same shit everyone else has.
    Im in the market for something custom to hold a set of Hella 500s.

    At first, I was going to do a Satoshi grille and put them behind the grille, but halfway through the build, I decided I like the look of the '11 grille too much to change it. (If it were a '05-'10 I would change it in a heartbeat).

    After lookin around at other option, I think I wanna do a lightbar off the bumper instead. I was lookin at the Nfab stuff, the Westin stuff, ect, and not of it really strikes my fancy. Most of these bars are too bulky or hold 3 or 4 lights - I only want to run 2 lights.

    I was looking around for ideas for a custom fabricated piece. I want to hide as much of the bar either behind the grille or behind the bumper similar to this -

    maybe do a custom bull bar. I like having that extra protection up front mounted directly to the frame. Then you could mount the lights above or below ??

    Thanks for the idea, not much of a bullbar fan though. Trying to keep it cleaner, more OEM+
