I have a 20" LED lightbar in my front bumper hole. Don't think I'm answering your question though...

ya i have seen people mount those there, right now i have three 55w halogen lights in there but im thinking of upgrading those to 100w bulbs and then getting about 6 6 inch round 100w lights for the light bar
thanks though, the one thing i dont like about the led bars is that they seem to blind everything, such as signs and what not

ya that is my exact thought since my truck is lifted i didnt want to deal with clearance issues, i somewhat came up with an idea for a headache rack light bar that is on two actuators so at the flip of a switch i can raise it up and then lower it so my roof is flush.

if you have the money ...look into rigid industries .....(some people like vision x to each his own)

its the last light youll ever buy ....super bright and last forever ....mount easily too ...draw very little power ....

i want one but i cant justify the outward cash flow hahaha

My Vision X Evo Prime Double Stack produces more light than the Rigid Industries' E Series in the same size. Granted, Rigid LED lightbars are about a third of the cost. The 20" Rigid has 7900 lumens of light. My Vision X has 20,640 lumens.

well ya i was looking at the rigid 40 inch bar for over the cab, and the 20 inch bar for the bumper but right now ive got 3 55w halogens there and they dont light up past my hid low beams and fogs on...so i think the led will light up more but first i gotta save up for them haha, cant justify that until i have it in hand.

what vision x length is yours?

and i like the "lightmare" haha im always adding more lights to my truck as well!
