i constantly take mine off and on, i just put it back up 2 days ago, and i found out that the 'new' gutter bracket i made (which is about the same height as the k/c kits) makes me 1" inch higher, now i can't get in my parkade :(. i previously made brackets from left over peices of the light bar, and bolted them near flush to the top of my rear doors....the rubbed a bit...but i was able to get in my parkade.....btw has anyone hit anything yet with their light bar yet? i have :P)

i cant put a light bar on my truck for that reason. i park in the 4th floor of a parking garage 6 days a week and my antenna already hit. when i do the body lift and get 33s then im gonna have to start parking outside the parking garage. sucks.
