    I finally got to put my new lightbar and rack together today. I also put in a flip-down mount for the bar. Gonna get a matching leopard skin toolbox in the spring too I think.

    its made by Highway Products out in Oregon, they make a lot of big rig headache racks. I really liked the way it looked and had to have it. I couldn't bring myself to buy a Protech aluminum or Pro-rack like every single person and their mother has around here. The bar is a towmans edition Justice with S/T/T lights and rear spot lights.

    took a few night shots and wanted to try out the work lights. They're pretty darn bright and have a nice spread. The last one is with my aux reverse lights on too.

    I took a video of the strobes, gonna edit it and put it on youtube too

    what's the purpose of the flip down mount, does the light move or something?

    The rack was $850 shipped and the lightbar was $850. I added two extra led modules to the front of the bar for another ~$150 too.

    it drops the light down back behind the cab so you can go into parking garages or carwashes if you dare.

    Hey man, I just though I would say hi seeing as I seem to pass you all the time on the roads! I live in West Redding, and see you all around. If you ever see a Cutting Edge Lawn Service truck, give a wave:)

    I'll keep an eye out, if I knew what you were drivin'

    thanks for the compliments guys, It was a long time coming, but I really like the way the truck is comin' together now. the lightbars are 5x better than a gumball light or even grill/deck/box mounted LEDS. I ran grill/box mounted LEDS and will never rely on them again for safety, people just don't slow down, however, when you've got a bar up top that puts out enough light to land a plane in a fog people slow down and give you room.
