    It wouldn't be hard to wire, just remember to check your local laws as most states will not allow on road use of these lights above the level of the headlights.

    Thought about doing the same thing on mine, but remembered when I tried to put night vision IR's and Cam in there, result was basically like you described. Hood reflection flared out scoop Cam and cams in the cab. So most likely light bar would basically do the same, the hood would limit your light output and probably reflect some back on you. If you try it, please post, interested to know if it would work, if it does, I'll do it :)
