Halfway done, the bar is installed, all I have left is the wiring and to go buy a nicer switch than what came with it; similar to SFFD103's.

I hooked up the light for kicks and it's blindingly bright, very impressed.

Summary:

As for the overall appearance, I do like it, you really can't see it unless you're far away because it's up higher - but it doesn't affect the beam which is exactly what I was looking for. The bar is 21", mount to mount it's 24". Because of the way the plastic inner pieces are there's no room for a bigger bar. I mounted it to the bumper reinforcement using two #14 1 1/4 self-tapping metal screws and lock washers, I can't get the thing to move.

There was a plug held in place by a bracket that was in the way, I removed the bracket and zip tied the plug where it was - can anyone tell me what that goes to? Seems like a sensor of some sort? You can see it on the left side on the mounting bracket.



Here is the finish product:



I'll snap more pictures with the light on sometime this weekend and I'll get a video at night.

Looks good! Can we get a picture of the light output compared to stock headlights?

also, should probably switch those halogens out for HIDs if you want more visibility

It attached exactly where I thought it would. That thing you could probably fit in the upper grille too, if the horns were relocated.
