    Back before led "lightbars" i used the outer tabs for "ditch light" mounting.

    Now errything in the world is led.. so i have a combo beam led lightbar on my lightbar .

    The leds dont throw NEARLY as far as the lightforces did, but much lower profile, so its ok.

    Light bar mounted on light bar upside-down?

    Bojangles Well-Known Member

    Yeah, its more subdued. I mocked it up on top and hated the look. Now its much sleeker imho, and hasnt leaked yet.

    That looks good and the price is reasonable. Does that offer more protection than a bull bar or does it have the same drawbacks?

    I've done alot of research and yea it offers more protection than a bull bar, but I wouldn't confuse it for a full steel bumper.

    Its made with the same steel as Brandon uses to make his rock sliders if that helps...
    Drawbacks? Theres a dent in my garage wall where the truck surged forward one day. I guess if i didnt have the light bar on, i woulda just smooshed my plastic bumper skin instead?
