My Modified RR Light Bar

Hey Guys just thought I would share my project with you. I wanted a light bar for my 2012 JKUR but I couldn't find one I really liked. So I saw a felow members (Sharparte) picture and really like his light bar. So I made one of my own. Its a Rugid Ridge light bar that I lowered 1 1/4" and welded on windsheild mounts so I could mount some IPF lights and painted PX8 (the color of the JK) and I also added tube clamps for added toughness. I was going to cut out the top section of the bar and add a Ridged Industries Led bar but I dont have the $$$$ to do that now(maybe in a few months). I also installed a sPod system to control the lights.

Thanks
I agree the RR paint sucked thats why it need to be changed. It especially didnt look good on the windsheild bracket with a black jeep. It may have been fine on a different color jk.

Sharparte very happy!

Great work bro!!! I wish I had your skills. I had to pay for mine to be modded and painted. I thought for a second I was looking my JK.
