Rugged Ridge Lightbar

Does anyone have the Rugged Ridge light bar? I am thinking about getting it, I like it but I'm not sure if it's right. I plan on getting a new bumper, but I can't afford it right now so this will have to do.

I also like the Mopar light bar:

Oh and I found this, anyone have this light bar? http://www.quadratec.com/products/12110_4000.htm

Thanks, I like it.

I'm still trying to figure out the difference between:
Rugged Ridge lightbar (http://www.quadratec.com/products/12110_1100_07.htm) and the mopar lightbar: http://www.quadratec.com/products/12010_5100.htm

Now I need a semi cost-effective lights, what do you think of these:
http://www.quadratec.com/products/97026_0X_PG.htm Is that everything I need? I don't need super bright lights, just good enough for the beach.

I just came in from installing the one from Rugged ridge on my 08 (looks identical to the mopar?).
Looks great and really quick and easy to install. It should also allow for a new bumper in the future.
Installed some 3x6 - 55w lights too (not hooked up yet though) I also like the fact that it gives a little extra protection for the rad. Fairly cheep mod. Lights and bar, 180.00 total.

Here is the link; Not sure if they are sold in the states or not.

Just cheap ones (compared to the ones at the local 4x4 shop at 250.00) but they actually look pretty good / solid and heard they work well.
(I sanded off the Baja print on the covers)

Ah, I seen them at stores. Do the square ones look good compared to round? I was aiming towards round ones.

The squares looks pretty good, but i would probably prefer a 4" round.

I may go with these, http://www.quadratec.com/products/97026_0X_PG.htm but get the black grill. Don't want bright yellow on a white and black Jeep

Thanks! That looks really good!

Are those lights allowed to be used for normal driving? I planning off road use only. What are the laws like that to make it road legal? I also have a white Jeep - http://jeep.sidrahq.com/SNC00011.jpg
