LED light bar on 06 FX4

Thought I would share a few photos. I was going to install this small light bar on another vehicle and when that didn't work out I turned to the Ranger to see if it might work. After messing around with different positions for 30 minutes, along with modifying a few things on the light bar bracket, I came up with what you see below. I don't off-road so I am not worried about the maximum amount of light I can get out front, but I think it looks good for where I put it. It is a 20" light bar with brackets on either side. At night it lights up decent. We will see how it holds up over time. It was meant as a day project and it didn't take long to mount and wire up. I do need to find a place to mount the switch inside though. Opinions are welcome.

Not real good shot, but it will do for now. It is an off-brand from Amazon.

Looks good, the tucked away look is the way to go.

Easiest place for me to place it with the tools I had. No real good place anywhere else that is as easy to mount a switch of this type.
