    I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a front lightbar and LED's but I can not find any real input or good pictures for the KC bar. Has anyone installed this or seen this installed on a 2012 yet?

    Thanks for the input as always.

    I've got a call in at KC on this right now. All I have is the instruction sheet. Thought this bar should only go to 2011 with the new nose for 2012.

    I called Westin and they are 30+ days out on theirs.

    KC was clueless (customer support) on the phone.

    I just ordered a N-Fab (#T124LB) for $168.00 shipped

    SOB .. I don't have that number in my list. Even checked the N-Fab page by the truck and it only went through 2011.

    Who had the $168 price if I may ask?

    I went through paypal if anything is funky (easy dispute) but they have already sent me a confirmation email so I am confident its a legit business.

    The part number was found on the Nfab website btw.

    Just talked to N-Fab to get my price and kinda bitch them out that the part isn't on the look up by now.

    They also told me production hasn't gone full swing on it. Did they give you any indication on time?

    Nope. I know that at least 1 person on this forum has one already (even though they mounted the light tabs on the wrong side to start with).

    Do you have anymore pull on this than the place I ordered from?

    I know the sales manager, Mark, at N-Fab very well. He said only a few "pre-production" units have gone out. They have not shipped to any of the major distribution warehouses yet.

    I hope they come out with one that sits up a little higher then the one posted in here last month. Looks odd with the lights in front of the bumper. I'd like to see it about 4" higher...

    Who has found a light bar that fits a 2012? I ordered a Westin after the tech guy assured me that it would fit. Even the paperwork said that it fit up to a 95. I guess that I will be sending this one back. Who has one that works???

    KC Lightbar on 2012. I added the center light. It does not come with a tab for it. Only for 2 lights.
