Well, thats your call, but I ran these bars on my Eagle Talon for 4 years and never had a problem.

I got a ton of compliments when I had the bar on top of the truck as a light bar, so the pictures just don't do it justice.

If I didn't do the body lift and didn't park in my garage and a garage at work, they'd be right back on there.

except theres very few people willing to drill holes in any part of their car, let alone the sheet metal, let alone the roof.

that mounting system thru the door jamb is tried and tested as one of the best mounting setups on vehicles without gutters where drilling is unneccessary.

Thats just for the mounting system.

The basket is much more if you buy a brand name one. I've seen knock offs for as low as $50 if you catch them on sale.
