Light Bar... show me pics of your truck's aftermarket lighting

Gents,

I'm trying to improve my Super Duty's lighting so needing to add a light bar up front. I often drive at night in nasty a$$ weather and had some PIAA lights and a High-4 conversion kit on my 1/2-ton. It made a huge difference in visibility over the stock lighting set up.

It appears my choices for aux lighting on the Super Duty are light bar or full bumper/bull bar with light mounts. Seen quite a few N-fab pre-runner bars, a couple of straight light bar set ups, and several full bumper set ups... (not sure I'm up for the expense of a whole new bumper). I would appreciate some pics and input from those of you that have an aftermarket lighting solution out front. Also interested in comments on (perceived) strength of the bar should you hit something up front. Judging by all the radiators/coolers running up front in our rigs, a little extra protection up front may be the difference between driving home from a fender bender or walking.

Thanks,
Jim

Yeah thats the part that sucks but I figured I would be at about that anyways by the time you buy a bar and two or three pairs of quality lights. Mine is only the 20" but it is more than enough light!
