put some extra lighting on, didnt really want a light bar but its well hidden and the light it puts off is great, be able to see deer on those early morning commutes home. I don’t normally buy a installation / wiring kit, I usually have enough wire & stuff to build my own but this time I did spend the $30 for one. went together quick and easy. I couldnt have built and installed my own wiring harness and switch in the 30 min it took me to put this in. I spent more time mounting the light bar to the grille guard,

the light and wiring kit. light was around 80, wiring harness 30.

put the switch right under the factory light switch.

cant hardly see it with the light bar not on. just how I like it.

there it is. wish there was a way to show the diffrence at night. the stock lighing is about as usefull as a flashlight in comparison.

not sure but does light things up really well. When I turn them off (like when meeting another car) I cant hardly see with the stock lights.
