LED Light Bar Install

Hey so I already posted it to the Facebook group, just wanted to make sure to post it on here as well. I made an install video for the installation in the lower grille for an LED Light bar. Hope this helps anyone who was thinking about doing this as an alternative to the fog lights.

Thanks for the wiring guide. Is a 24" light bar the largest you can fit in there or is there a bit of space for one that's an inch or two longer?

You could prolly get another inch or 2 longer , but it would be kinda hard to mount....honestly I think the ideal size is the 24in one

That provides quite a substantial amount of usable light, that's really nice ! Do you plan on adding anymore lighting to the front end ?

I was thinking of adding some light to the corners and attach them to the turn signals so that a portion of the grille flashes in the corner when the turn signal is on. But that would just be for fun. The light bar is so bright that I can turn off my headlights and just use the bar lol its great. I think it would be kinda cool to have a light bar facing the rear so if someone is trailing me I can flash them to back off haha but that might be illegal hahah

The signal integration into the grill would be pretty cool actually. But I can totally see the rear light bar being illegal LOL ! It does seem, from the pictures at least, that you're headlights can be of no use at this point and you can just use the light bar which is great

I guess so? I use them as if they are fog lights. Only needed when fog lights would be needed. I don't just drive around with them for shits and giggles lol I just did not want to spend the $200+ on the fog lights when I could have a whole light bar for $45.
