    Where is the best place to get brackets for a light bar. And what's the best size light bar to run?

    Where do you want to mount the light bar (roof, behind grill)?

    Ive got an Auxbeam 8-slot gang switch deal. Just plug in the amber and white hot leads separately.

    I’m pretty happy with it. Maybe not as bright as higher end brands but definitely bright enough to be useful.

    The white spot less have pretty good throw and the amber floods work well as ground lights.

    yeah it does but it’s a kinda junk universal harness. I used part of that lead but if you’re going to use traditional relays/switches I’d recommend making your own wire harness that’ll fit the truck better
