    Are you guys that are mounting kind of flush with the front bumper able to get much adjustment out of the light?

    I have mine in there to realize I need larger angle iron than what I bought... it fits pretty snug in the hole... doesn't seem like there is going to be any way of really adjusting it vertically.

    And the light sits flush with the bumper, I didn't need to adjust mine because the way I angled it to begin with was perfect and gave great. Not to mention they are so bright, you won't need to adjust because they will still light up the whole road in front of you

    What kind of bar is that and what size? I have a '13 and I know the lower valance opening is just a little smaller.

    Finished the light bar in my 2014. the spacing is way diff. from what people have on here. used angle iron and then cut a little more and had to go up and down with more iron to get the bracket up high enough. and had to dremel out the lower valence a bit. turned out good though.

    I have a 13 and this is a 30" bar, or 32" if you count the housing, etc. Lots of trimming and taking on and off the bumper to see if it fits. I bought the Rigid lower valence mounts and customized them to my needs. Very happy with the final product. :D

    I put mind behind it. It wouldn't be ideal for a flood pattern light though. It works for an all spot pattern bar though.

    I got my light bar okledlightbars.com.

    Great job everyone on the bars! One thing is make sure the bars are secured in. Mine had gotten stole back before Christmas. I live in Las Vegas with a lot of shady people. Sucks what happened but just keep an eye on it or weld it in if you can or secured with a plate so they can't remove it
