LED Light Bar Mounted!

Got the LED light bar mounted in the bumper this weekend! Love the sleek hidden look and holy crap is it bright! It's a 20" bar from Trail Worthy Fab. Great quality on the bar and the wiring harness, all are super tough and weatherproof. Mounted with KD Fabworks brackets.

I was thinking about this a couple of days ago! My only concern was rocks hitting it being that low. Looking forward to a night time picture!

The factory foglights are in the same location, and if you order a light bar that uses a polycarbonate lens you should have no issues. Some of the cheaper chinese brand lights use glass lenses which will shatter in no time at that level.

That makes no sense to me...

The Fog lights are glass, they don't break. The Glass used in a lightbar (even Chinese) is Tempered Glass ~ Very Strong! If you've had one break, how ever unlikely that might be, I don't think it's something others have to worry about.

I've personally seen quite a few of the Chinese bars with glass lenses shatter. Part of the problem is that they are completely flat and have a larger surface area than the factory fogs. It probably depends on where you live as well. Here in the PNW we have lots of rocks other stuff left over on the roads from winter.

I've never seen a broken lens on one with polycarbonate, even the Chinese ones.

Yes sir.....I would consider 6 bars to be quite a few compared to how many broken factory fogs and polycarbonate lenses I've seen.

I think mounted higher up the glass lenses would be just fine.

Not trying to start any debate, just wanted to point out that it should be taken into consideration when buying a light. What type of driving you will be doing and where you're located in the States because it can, and does happen.

Here's a pic of one of the lights....mounted on a GM HD truck:
