    Take down lights on voltex bar. Not the brightest, but I won't use them very often.

    I picked it up for $150, it has one burnt out LED segment which I am working to get replaced. Even if I end up not being able to replace to one LED I think I am ok w/ it for $150.

    Not sure what you call them, they are partially blocked by the back rack. I will be relocating them, I believe that they are just grille lights normally. I just have them tucked behind the headrests in the back seat.

    Pretty sure they consider this a 36" bar......wanted the 48", but couldn't pass up the deal on this one.
