    I got the N-Fab light bar from http://www.truckcustomizers.com/ . Excellent customer service and very fast shipping. I would recommend these guys to anyone. It took less then a week to get to Newfoundland, Canada. I paid $227 and feel it is worth every penny. My dad is a retired welder and said the quality is top notch. He didn't see any mistakes and feel its a great weld. The install took me less then 2 hours. I took my time and enjoyed doing it. No lights installed yet. I'll drop in the local truck accessory store and see whats availible. Don't really want to order lights. Well here are a few pics. Sorry they were taken last night but you get the idea how it looks. Thanks to everyone who recommended this bar. I am 100% pleased.

    Thanks guys.

    I just got back from the local shop. i have been looking at Hella's mostly for price and they are here locally which means no ordering. They only have 2 Hella 500's and 4 Hella 700's. I want four lights but I'm not too sure how four Hella 700's would look seeing how they are really big. If I have to order another set of 500's from them I'll have to look elsewhere becuase they are really slow when it comes to orders.

    The N-Fab bar is great. I searched for a while about lights and finally went with Light Force 170's. My middle lights have the Spot cover abd the outer lights have the Combo cover. The middle lights throw a lot of light straight down the road while the outer lights spread out the light.

    good choice on the Nfab. I put 4 hella 500s on mine. They are decent lights for what you are spending.
    If I was to do it over again I would get the lightforce lights, so many options with those changable covers!

    I changed the middle bulbs with amber ones, they go well with my hids

    Love the light bar pics guys. I might end up with Lightforce or maybe even kc daylighter's if I have to order. I'm leaning toward the Hella 700's seeing how they are local. Any suggestion's on the 700's?

    Suprisingly, Lightforce makes red lenses.

    Not really an issue here and they are a bit of a necessity. The blue lenses help to see through heavy snow. And of course I only run them when I have to. If you're a complete tool and run them in the middle of the day on city streets, no shit you're gonna get pulled over.:rolleyes:
