That was one of my concerns as well; however, the more I thought about it, I would only be using the bar at night or early morning when it's coolest outside. I don't think it should block enough air to make a difference, but we'll see.

GL with the installed; post pics once done!
Agreed, but I didn't really want to upgrade to HID's just yet - plus I assumed it would cost more than the $100 the bar cost me? If I position it correctly it should turn the night into day based on a few friends of mine running the same bar at bumper height.
The bar came in, I just have to make time to go get a different switch and crawl under there to install it. I'm used to being able to completely sit under my vehicles without using even using a jack, I then realized how good I had it when I could barely squeeze under the front bumper.
Here's a picture of the bar...
Hopefully it will be installed by this weekend.
