Rigid lights on my 2006

Planning to add some aux lighting. I would like to go with rigid lights but Havnt seen a clean look I really like. The 08+ have the nice fog light replacement. Has anyone seen anything with stock factory bumper?

05 with a 20" Rigid E-Series bar. Bulletproof Diesel may be offering a mounting solution for the 05-07's in the very near future.

I haven't taken any pictures, but they're ridiculous. I had three KC 57 Series offroad lights there before (167,000 candlepower each) and the Rigid bar puts them to shame.

Put it this way -- I was at the PRI diesel drags Friday night and someone asked if they could see the light bar in action. I was parallel parked behind the grandstand (if you're sitting and facing the track, the driver side of my truck would have been to your back with the front end of my truck pointed towards the big end of the track) and every single person watching the races turned around when I lit things up. Definitely good for a chuckle.

Sweet! I like the HIDs for headlights but these things are ridiculous how well they work. I want some for my quad too! LOL

Would they cause any issues with the power steering cooler or the other coolers right behind the light?

I haven't had any issues. The light bar won't be much more of an obstruction than a license plate and two OEM fog lights. If you look at the lower valence (air dam) under the bumper, its also designed to direct air across those heat exchangers.

That is a sweet looking set up. I was thinking HID fog lights, but I dont use my fog lights very much and when I need more light it seems like that may just work way better.

Do you have it wired to the factory fog light switch?
