30 inch rigid lightbar install



This is my old truck, but I took a 30 inch single row light bar and mounted it behind the grille, it fits perfect.

Daaang, I saw some thread where a guy said he mounted a 40" single row up top and I was considering that size. Yours looks like a perfect fit. More details, please.

I took two small thin pieces of metal and cut a hole and put the lights through the hole, and then bent the other ends and used four self tapping screws and screwed them into the metal bar right left of the horns and then the same thing on the other side. it fits perfect

here is a close up.

I then have the 20 inch and the 30 inch hooked up to the upfitter switches.


This is all the photos I have.

Haha well since I bought my 2011 in since July 2011 and lights since August 2011, call me a bold face liar, but I've had this installed since September 2011.
