4x4 Fabworks Light bar

I was google searching and came across this:

http://www.4x4fabworks.com/mn/

Anyone ever bought this light bar? post pics please if you did, this light bar looks really awesome and i was wondering if anybody could possibly give some feedback about it. One thing that concerns me are the mounts...they look a little thin? responses much appreciated!

Be the first! They look like a great design idea for guys that want a light mount and a tiny bit of protection up front (a tiny bit..)

Personally I like the bracket kit they have for mounting them behind the grille. They look neat.

I'd be interested but 300 seems steep?

i dont think $300 is too bad, but im really considering buying this. I think this would be perfect for the occasional weekend warrior that just needs some lights on the front with a stylish mount, cause thats all this is haha.

slap on a 10-12" LED bar and i think this would look sick.

I ordered the slotted bar they sell. Ordered it in plain metal finish because I don't like how the bar try's to bend around the front bumper. I think I'm going to cut off those ends to make it strictly a light bracket for my led light bar. After cutting it, then I'll paint it. Or powdercoat it.

Think I am going to do the same, or just make one similar with the few things I would change.

I was going to have a bar built just like this one until I bit the bullet and went with an LSR bumper.

Thanks for the pics. Can't wait to mount my led light bar. I bought a 20 inch light bar off amazon for 155 shipped. When it got here I put it up against my friends two ten inch rigid e series led light bars. The light output was almost identical.

Thanks man, it's a work in progress, left over parts from the SRT and older WJ's.

Its a good design but for $300 I'd prefer a little more real protection. I just put my light bar right on my bumper. Only a ten inch one, might sell it to upgrade to a 20inch.
