    Subs,

    Side note,
    I though the same way, but I think I'll save up for like a rigid or Baja designs. Buy once cry once. Also I personally don't need much exterior lighting right now so it is towards the bottom of my list behind rock sliders.

    What's your budget, I have a 20" that I could part with. Brand new.

    And a 52" curved for that matter.

    PM if you want.

    Honestly for $40 you can get a new bar on Amazon and $15 for a harness on Amazon.

    I wouldn't buy a used cheap bar even if Jesus was selling it to me.

    If you can't blow $55 then you don't need to be buying anything.

    Seconded. I got a 32" that is awesome. It came with a harness and switch too but I bought my own switch and hooked it in. Bought my own harness too bc I didn't know it came with it but now I'm just inclined to buy more lights since I have a harness lying around...

    I bought mine from Amazon (i THINK it was this one.. http://www.amazon.com/Motorbike-Mot...=1458680356&sr=8-4&keywords=20+inch+light+bar ) let me know if that link dosent work.

    My 2 cents on light bars, i know multiple people who have gotten there 100+ Dollar light bars stolen, and to me it seemed stupid. They are not as good of quality as Rigid, or some of the other top company's by any means, but mines held up very well, i drive on gravel a lot, and they are probably 3x brighter then my headlights!
