    here is the lightbar we just picked up from a member on here, its an awesome light, last storm my brother was backing out of a blind drive and almost got t-boned by a lady in a lexus SUV, she was flying and almost lost control to miss him, so we decided it was time for a lightbar, lol
    here are some pics of it on the truck.

    I was watching the thread that the bar was for sale in. You got a heck of a deal. I think it would look better on my truck, but makes your brother's look pretty good.:drinkup:

    Nice, you made out like a bandit! I was watching that thread too.

    Having lights on the truck takes a little bit of stress of your back knowing that you can be seen and people won't come flying around the corner wondering what your doing sideways in the middle of the street when your backing out of a parking lot or driveway.

    hahah thanks to you! im instaling the backrack tomorrow, got all the pieces i need to fab up a mount for it.

    And Mystic:
    it was ALMOST t-boned, thats why we wanted the lightbar, lol this way there wont be any questions on weather or not a truck is out around the corner plowing a driveway.

    did it our selves, this was a fairly easy install, hardest part was running the power wires upto the battery, tried to hide the wires as much as we could and i think we did a good job at it. also thank you.

    on a side note what did you want for your bar, and do you have pics of it?

    Quick question, what is the length of the bar? It fits the truck well.

    I also have a Ram and am thinking about a project bar using a Whelen Edge Frame.

    52" or 55" don't remember. I see some 48" - they do not look as good on full size pickups and the towmans edge is toooooo long @ 60". Try to find the 52 or 55" on ebay.
