Default Light Bar

Does anyone have any expirience with the Smittybilt light bar 120020 for a 2011 Ram 1500?
I am planning to use one with 4 hella 4000, but I am concerned with vibrations and potential failure during high speed offroad driving as the light bar apears to only be mounted with two bolts on the front number plat session and the hella's are abit heavy.

Comments and feedback is apreciated on this mater.

Unless this truck also has long travel suspension, you aren't going to go anywhere near fast enough to damage those lights.

dezertrunner, thanks for feedback, I have bilsteins 5100s on the truck not sure if you can consider that long travel but I do travel regular around 65 on gravel trails with this setup and there quite a bit of vibrations, so that is where my concern comes from.
