Icon10 New light bar installed

Since some of you havent seen the pictures, I figured I would share.

Since taking these pictures, I have also added some more lights. I figured, I'd see how fast I can kill my stock Alternator



















Since the plan was, originally to get my tonnaeu cover to work with the back rack, I had to cut the original brackes, and flip em so that I could get the rails of my tonnaeu cover to go over the brackets. This worked.

I used some 1/8 rubber, and some Texaco Rust proofing greese between the bed and the brackets to cut down on any 'problems'

Next summer, I plan to take the bar off, make new brackets, and sandblast the bar and brackets, I also plan to put bed liner over the areas where the brackets will be.

The 4 KC's consist of twp 130 watt long range lights and two 130 watt driving lights. I ran a 10gauge extension cord directly from the battery to the bed, and then fabricated a box to power the lights. The relays and fuses for the 2 pairs are in this box, which makes it convient for an extra power source to run extra goodies.

3 inches off the battery I put in a 60amp fuse.

Let me be the first to say the added lights are frickin AWESOME!

Tonight I added 2 55 watt lights to both side pointing backwards as extra backup lights. Since getting 5% limo tint on my rear window and the bar, I have noticed backing up at night to be somewhat difficult. Not that its hard, but the added light provided by the 'new' lights, will surelly help.

Go for it. But be sure to run you lights off the battery so you dont burn out your alternator. The power point I put in the bed, has worked out AWSOME so far, I will have to get pictures of it.
