I bet there's not too much difference. Truck stop light bars is what I'm gonna go for. Or from rural king or something

Had my Recon bar with scanning amber turn signals, white reverse lights, and red stop and park lights for over a year. No problems to date and looks good. Surprising because I have heard many bad things about Recon products. But mine is still holding up!

I bought a 3 light LED light bar from Walmart. It was around $10. I've had it since March '06 and it is still working great!! It does not match the factory mounting holes as you can see in the pic in the link below. (Pic is large)

LED Light bar - I had to drill 3 holes....2 to mount it, 1 to run the wire through (I used a grommet to protect the wire). I tapped into the running light wire in the trailer wiring harness.
