    I have a Magnetic Grey Metallic/ Mica truck and I am going to be putting a 50" LED bar on the roof

    For those of you that have the same color truck as me that are running a roof rack, how bad is the glare off of your hood?

    I haven't gotten it installed yet. I am going to be doing it the week after this upcoming week. I have a decal across the top of my windshield for my company. so the LED bar is going to be back a little, not hanging over the windshield. I don't think it should be a problem

    I am going to use the stock threaded holes in my 2nd Gen Double Cab for the mounting points. I am going to my buddy's shop to get it done (Leadfoot Off Road) so whatever design he comes up with. He does AMAZING fabrication and full race prep. It is just going to be a pretty simple design, nothing too complicated

    Nice just make sure you seal the holes good so you dont let water in there but I've seen few members that have done this and it's pretty solid
