Light Bars

I've never liked the looks of light bars and thought even if I did have one, the lights would get knocked off by low hanging trees and such on the trail. But I saw one on a yellow TJ today and thought, hey, that don't look half bad.

So, post up light bar pictures! All types, all kinds, any details/companies if you can.

Looking for two shots if it's possible, one close up, and one kinda far away. maybe 15-30 feet.

Thanks guys.

Thanks guys, I'm pretty sure it being far away is what sold me. It was at a pretty big intersection that I saw him turn.

All of these have 4 lights, his definately had 5. Do they make them with 5 spots to put lights, or was his custom done?

Mine has enough room to fit like 6, just depends on the size of the light and how close you want them. I can fit 5 just the other 4 I'm running pretty easy. There are holes that allow you to slide them from side to side to get your desired look/ effect.

Thanks for the info, I'm curious if the other style that goes all the way down to the bottom of the windshield does that.

Awesome, I'm glad they don't get knocked off all the time.
