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?

possibly larger

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 ?

hmmm

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

Someone seems a bit upset ... Bad experiences perhaps ?
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. :serious:

True, makes sense. They're really low-key too when they're not on it seems in the video. That's a serious price difference though, and the light bar is so much more worth it.

Another question though, are your headlights tinting with dragon laminates ?

I bought the dragon eyes and they where super thick and a bitch to install (plus expensive as ****, so I removed them and went and bought the transparent chameleon head light wrap on Amazon from AUMO-mate. Super cheap and you get double the amount from dragon eyes. There is like 9 colors you can do.

Wow that is a crazy price difference. The dragon laminates was like 80$+ for one roll and you need apparently two rolls for a set of headlights :serious: Thanks for the link though, I'll definitely go that route, wish they had a chameleon black though

I work at an offroad racing shop and switched from my jeep to the IM, and instantly went in to the shop and did the same thing you did, there was too much room in there i couldnt resist! I am curious is to what kind of roof rack that is? Im about to throw some matte white Rotiform wheels and then line-x white a roof rack once i find one.

Yeaa that's why I'm torn apart between the two ! Like I won't be installing it myself, but for the price difference. I'm not too sure, I may bite the bullet and just go with Dragon Laminates instead.

This is what it looks like:

yeah when I got my dragon eyes, the part that I did well looked great, its just a bitch to get to stick for some reason. Im sure now that ive had some practice with this cheaper kind I could prolly do fine with it, I just couldnt beat the 14 bucks for 80in.

I definitely see that, $14 compared to like $160 lol, pretty clear cut choice at that point
