PreRunner Light Bar...what do i think....?

ment to say what do u think...lol

well i got this light bar from a friend for $40. it seems pretty well built. im not sure what brand it is and i havent been able to find one like it on line. the arms that go down are different than all the others. but they line up perfectly with my winch mount so it works for me. im going to cut the light tabs off because i dont like where they are. the 2 on the top are gay and i would never put light up there.....and i dont like how the lower ones stick out further than the lower bar....so when i put light on it im just going to use the 2 middle mounts....im going to weld some angle iron onto the bumper for the upper mounts (the outer ones are getting trimmed down) and im bolting the lower mounts to te winch plate....i plan on gusseting some of the mounts to make it stronger....here are some pics of it...

ya ive never been a huge fan of them....but it looks better than nothing untill i build my bumper....and since i got HID's with no high beams i want to run a set of driving lights off the brights...so at least the brights control does something...and i can still flash people....and i hate the look of just lights on the stock bumper....

That's one of the nicer one's I've ever seen. I would bet that one is a one off custom build. Usually companies don't make em like an owner would like them to be.
