    has anyone done such a thing?
    How much, what type?
    If done so what company?
    I think it would look sick and be functional!

    i almost did until the size bar i needed was going to cost almost 1,800 at the time. now i'm not afraid of spending money, but a nice retro and a set of hid kight force something or other is just as bright or brighter imho.

    there is a guy in i forget his screen name but he has a nice big ol bar and it fills his lower grill valance. the look is awesome, but he works for the company who makes them or has some connection with them. for that kind of money you could get a professional retrofit and a nice set of light force lights.

    I've seen them in the bottom but the only thing is that with it being so low and unprotected it would be easily submerged and or smashed into a stump! If I'm putting that much into a light bar i want that shit safe. I've seen photos of the guy that has them down there tho. Looks really cool but I'm not to sure about that, I like to wheel my tacko!

    Yeah, they have same sizes as RI...they're almost identical...the rep told me they have new design as well....just seems like more rivets around the face plate.

    if i was going to drop the coin on a light bar i would probably stick with brands that are known. ala rigid vision-x or baja rack. i know these companies make their lights to meet military standards of weather shock and dust proofing.

    btw what kind of prices are we talking here? meaning whats their retail price for a given light say the 2 inch lights?

    Just based on initial pricing, it seems the larger the bar the deeper the discount. On 20" 30" 40" and 50" , at least a couple hundred dollars. Ambers are a but more in the same sizes. Hopefully, should have prices ironed out by tonight, will probably order samples tonight and do my own testing.
    Again, if they're shit products I wouldn't put them on my truck and definitely wouldn't try pushing em on you guys. Other members on here have taken care of me when I've needed parts, and i plan on doing the same.
