Truck looks sick, how did you run the wires for the bar? I think if you where to do the headlight mod it would be much cheaper.

i had them wired professionally because i didnt trust myself to drill into the frame. there run through the roof, there hidden on the drivers side bracket so you cant see them. then they were ran through the roof and down the a piller.

as for the headlights, price isnt a big deal, im just worried about looks wise. i just dont want it to look cheap.

Nice. I like it, but then again I may be a lil bias. I'm thinking you probably should have mounted it towards the back more.

And no, black headlights won't make your truck look cheap. I got mine off eBay (before i knew you could diy).





Did you get the Rota Bar?

first things first, i just ordered the black headlights from ebay so there on the way :)
secondly i decided to mount the lights towards the front because i want to put a roof basket on the top behind them.
and no i didnt get a rota bar, i should have but oh well.

how did you mount 4 lights on the push bar? drilled extra holes?

Which seller did you buy the lights from?
Gotcha, I was thinking about a basket myself, but they are a bit pricey. Instead I got a cap for $200 (yea around same price, but more storage)
Yea, I love the rota. Defiantly worth the extra few bucks.
Yep, I actually drilled 4 new holes so the lights were all evenly spaced out.

I bought my lights from imotorsportoutlet, i got the ones with the smoked yellow turn signals.
i thought about a cap but i just like the fact that i have the open bed where i can move whatever i want.

what CB antenna is that?

Cap is really easy is to remove. 4 clamps. Not hard at all. Once I finish my move, its coming off till the winter time.

Just one from Radio Shack. I have a 4ft Firestik antenna that I still have to mount, just need to find a good ground.

it's ok, but i've never been a fan of blue colored lights, even if they are white when turned on.

yea i wanted to get some PIAA's or KC's but the value i got these for and produce the same quality of light i couldnt beat. Im going to be installing black headlights and smoked corners soon so the blue will flow better.

Not bad at all. I want more lights. You should lift it, it'll make it look like all the lights belong on the truck. Black headlights will look killer on your truck. Are you a cop?
