Default Carr Light Bar with 5 lights!

Hey guys I'm considering putting on a carr light bar with 5 kc's. Any of you fellas ever seen one of these? just wondering if y'all think i should go for it! i love the roll bar and 5 light look but i don't feel like sacrificing my tool box and bed room for a roll bar. also its way more expensive. but just asking for a little input!

Well, since you asked for opinions I'll offer mine.

Unless you have a specific need for a roof mounted light bar (i.e. routinely off-roading in conditions that warrant roof mounted aux lighting) I don't think they're practical or a good investment.

The lights are ultimately mounted quite high up and aren't as effective as they would be down lower, plus in most areas, it's illegal to use them on public roads. You also run the risk of having glare reflecting from your hood surface.

Just my $0.02 opinion, but I think many roof light bars really look like someone took a 70s era luggage rack and bolted lights to it - not a good look overall and looks cheap & tacky.

For practical aux lighting I'd lean more towards a grille/bumper level mounting system, or even a bull bar (it provides some extra protection).

I would run a light bar from your front bumper... I have 4 130w KC daylighters on an n fab bar and they are extremely bright, you will have more glare from over the roof and they will be useless with even very slight fog or rain
