    I just picked up an all amber Code3 MX7000 lightbar for my truck. I got it for $75 plus a welding helmet.:) The mount i built at work out of aluminum. What do you guys think?

    Yes it was tig'd but not by me. I do not have the ability to tig weld. at least not yet. I had a friend at work weld it for me. BTW it is aluminum not stainless.

    I drilled 4 -1/2" holes per side and installed "rivnuts" into the hole. basically a rivit with a 3/8" nut built into it. Since they are blind holes, cant get at the back side. I then bolted it to the bed rails.
