    what lighting and what length has everyone been using? Debating on flood/spot combo, but have a set of RI ditch lights flood, so perhaps no flood is needed?

    An unusually high amount of pinstriping.
    It's going to be a 30" bar. A lot of people, including me, have gotten them from Cali Raised. They make a bracket that fits perfectly, but I think also Baja Design also has one.

    but the logical question, flood spot, or having flood ditch lights is enough just go spot?

    I just have the light bar so ended up getting the combo. I have used it a couple of times and works great, but I am on twisty windy roads in the forest, not out in the desert so not sure on how far it throws light. I'm thinking about getting a set of ditch lights, but would have them point off to the side just for more light on the trails at night.

    Rigid also makes a grill that fits a light bar, but I think the grill alone is north of $500. I looked at it briefly, then I noticed the price and changed my mind.

    You can also pick up a kit from Rago Fab who makes really high quality, good steel mounting equipment and order it with our 30" C-Series Combo light bar (8° Spot and 90° Spread reflectors). This light bar is blacked out in the centers (not the one shown in the truck photo) that will really help stealth out the entire look! $350 for the bar and the brackets.

    Just ordered the Rago/KC kit. Are there any night pictures or video of this in use?

    This looks the the setup I need for my rig. Is the bar available in an all flood version?

    From experience, flush single row puts out more light when using a cheap light bar.

    If you must do hidden, then go spot only. You will lose all flood light to the grill surrounding the bar

    That logic makes sense. I don't need spots out front, so I guess I will look into ditch lights. Thanks for the info.

    No, we only offer this C-Series 20" bar in the combo beam pattern.

    I have my RAGO brackets. I'm waiting for Taylor@KCHiLites to ship the light bar. :boink:

    Light bar arrived last night. Cupid is standing between me and installing.

    Just finished putting on my Caliraised 32" LED bar. Bought the Caliraised kit with the combo light. It throws off a TON of light. No issues what so ever in regards to the grill blocking much light from the floods...its damn bright.

    I don't think I would want that much money hanging out like that

    I pretty happy with what I paid for the Cali Raised setup...and happy with the product so far. Guess we'll see....
