Just installed the same thing yesterday with KC Long range Apollos. Looks like the photo. Only piss off was that one of the bolts for attaching the bar to the mount was too short.
You dont actually have to take the bumper off either. I took the plastic dam off in the top between the bumper and the grill. To get it in again without taking the bumper off I had to trim it, but I think you will have to take a bit off the sides anyways. Then the lower airr dam i just removed the plugs so it was dangling and was able to do it pretty easily. with the install of the lights it took about 2.5 hours.
If you have questions I will post a good write up. I will post some photos in a bit

Yeah the exact same colour as the add.
I went out of town this weekend and put about 200km of bush road driving on. Half of it at night. It really is a good unit for the price. My old jeep I had the light on the bumper and they were all over the map shaking at idle and not moving. These ones are pretty solid. The bar isnt going to hold up if you hammer a tree but will add some protection. Its nbot really thick material but this morning a 250lb guy pulled a sit/lean on the bar. It didnt do anything to it but I told him to get off right away.
What it boils down to is that I am happy with my purchase, install is easier than the directions they give and does as advertised. Works well, I think it looks good, holds lights, and was cheap. Im looking at a new vehicle in the next 2 years I figure so dont want to put a huge amount of money into the jeep I will never get back.

its not bad for the price, a little wobble on rough roads but the lights seem to be steady,, its just the mounting; lost one bulb , not sure if was just defective or the wobbling
