    I've decided I'm gonna get a friend to help me fab up a light bar. The lights I have for my bullbar don't fit and I have taken this as a reason to ditch the bull bar all together for a light bar.

    I'm thinking of a design similiar to the n fab where it mounts behind the bumper and comes out through the lower grill, taht way it doesn't interfere with my towing point or ground clearnece/approach angle like the bull bar does.

    Bassicly I'm just looking or ideas on what exactly to do. Also does anybody have any idea how much roughly I'm gonnna be spending in materials to build my own light bar?

    Nothing yet, brand new!
    I have one of these on order. I'm ditching the bull bar too. It's purely for looks for me. I wanted more lights anyway :D
    Cost is $279 less freight. This one is candy chrome. Comes in black too.

    And while you're at it, the more recent pictures look a whole lot better with the paint, skidplate, and headlights.
