Looks amazing! I vote no on the light bar, but either way, it turned out great!

So here's where im at now. the new sides are fully welded, ground down and ready for paint. I have the bar tacked on with light tabs. the lights have to be where they are cuz the winch would be in the way if they were moved any farther apart. so, keep or rip off?

Lower the bar, and put the lights on top so the sit about level with the top of the hood. I think that would look killer!

I think the bars bends need more of an angle.....like the top horizontal.....shorten it about 6", but keep the mounting width the same at thebumper. try that out.

Looks good man!
I like the bar, but I also think it looks a little 'busy' with the winch exposed too.

I still like it, sides look good also.

looks killer. but the left side is slightly lower than the right, if you look at the top bar and follow it along the hood line youll see what im talking about
