    I only have a couple pics of her so far at dealership. I'll get more this weekend after my grill guard is installed. I put running boards and the roof rack on a couple days ago and she's getting tinted today.

    Gonna look awesome!

    Stay tuned.

    If you want a REAL rollbar - one that'll be structurally capable to support the weight in a rollover..... Have it custom made and attached to the frame.

    Just sayin..... ;)

    I think that the OP is looking for a light bar or a bed bar, not something offering actual rollover protection.

    x2. Otherwise it'll be just like that damage multiplier you have hanging off your front end meaning it'll look nice but will not provide any protection.

    Solid for what? To hold lights or are you looking for protection? Neither the bed bar or the bull bar will offer any protection.

    Want it to provide protection too. So I'm getting it has to be custom into the frame. Otherwise primarily for looks.

    Okay, grill guard installed and ready to go. All I need is a bed bar if I can find one I like enough...and maybe lights on the grill guard!

    Thanks all for your input.

    Man that brush guard look really good on the 12+ fronts.

    Have you thought about maybe putting some lights on the roof rack instead of a bed roll bar?

    The brush guard is a Westin...I got it at Five R Trucks here in Colorado. I can get you the details on it if you wish.
