Default Custom fab'd light bar

For about $25 I bought 1"x36" square steel stock (hollow, with holes every inch along all 4 sides), 2"x 3/16"x 36" at Lowes. I used a hack saw and file to knock down the rough edges, black paint and vioala! The grill in the pictures will not be there for long, I have the T Rex clone with the rivets around the outside.

Nice setup you've got there. I like the easy fabbed square stock bar!

I got my lights from Advance Auto for around $40, I measured about 11" from the side in, drilled right into the front crossbar. Mounted them up and wired them up using a relay and ran a switch into the cab, not too hard.

beast, any chance you can get a pic of the lights you got at harbor freight? I have a HF near me, and ten bucks is a deal ya can't turn down. especially when you can upgrade them to HID.
