    Anyone ever mount a light bar on the front valance?

    Where to mount? Need one for night trails.

    I got this one off of Amazon and the brackets (with some slight bending) lined up perfectly with some holes in the frame of the truck.IMG_3906.jpg

    Very bright for what it is, I love using it down some empty unlit roads at night. Trees here are about 250-300ft back.IMG_3922.jpg

    Got an OEM fit switch for the blank in the lower dash.IMG_3848.jpg

    I spent just under $100 on the light, wiring harness, and switch. Will add links in just a few.

    Sometimes you just have to say yes to any and all possible mounting locations.
