    Looks nice. It it were mine I think I'd take the mounting feet off the bar so It'd sit lower. Looks nice though. Who made it?

    those bars were built for a UK police dept and the order never shipped they sat here in ct for a while and many got sold cheap

    Thanks .i would but it's a custom size and the frame was cut down so i had to use them on the backrack mounts. bills public saftey made it for me. he makes any bar you want at good prices
    yup i saw one on ebay and it was from the uk so i told the guy who made this for me the size of that bar and he made it. I didn't want a full size on my truck and this is just the perfect size.

    Get yourself some spray paint and spray it on... It's cheaper that way! :laughing:

    Thanks the truck came with the grill and emblem already on it but the grill is stock and the middel is just painted but go onto lmc truck and you can buy the emblem and th whole grill black like mine for your year truck.

    yea he sent me a pic of the bar and it only had one on each side in the middel and i didn't like the way it looked so i had him put a few more on.

    we need a video now!!! lol got any pics from the side from a decent distance away. looking into buying a 50" inch edge and debating on whether to mount it on the roof ( 97 chevy ex cab short bed) or to fork up the money for a back rack. not sure if it will look right sitting behind the cab or not.

    i mount all my bars on the roof not the backrack, they dont look goofy to me. i prefer them on the roof so they dont stick up so high.

    here is the one on my extended cab short bed dodge.

    yeah that looks a lot nicer to me. do both your ex cab doors open though? my passenger side does but my driver side does not so not sure how i can mount it on the roof to sit back behind the drivers door. Cant telll where yours is mounted exactly but might have to end up putting it before the ex cab section of the cab.

    both of my back door do open, but i didnt put it back that far, i stopped right at the back of the front doors like you said, i didnt want to put it too far back so it wasnt visible from the front of the truck.
