KC Light Bar? Where to find the cheapest one?

Hey everyone, I was looking for a light bar like the one Zach has (Redneckstone) has. I want the cheapest one I can find please... I've also found the lights I want to go w/ the bar. It comes w/ 8 lights for $140 shipped on ebay & they are 130 watts a piece!

Sawred (Mike) has a light bar on the roof of his truck made from a roof rack. Looks like a lot less work no screwing into the truck just clamps on.

When I install the light bar, where will I run the wires from all of the lights that are on the bar?

acully yes i do see a few things the rings that holds the lense in is really cheaply done and if you probly flip that over the gasket is probly huge and nasty. the plate the holds the ball and socket in is cheaply made. the gromits that are at the wire loom and housing at HUGE compared to KC. the wire Loom is probly chrome instead of stainless unlike KC. and i could keep going but there is no piont haha
