What type and size is that light bar on top? (Rigid Industries right?) (SR series, E series)(6", 12").

Do you have closer pics of the way you mounted it?

It is the Rigid SR 10", I went with the hybrid lens. It doesn't fit on the tabs that are on the bumper. The light is too wide and the tabs are so close to the grill that the light housing wouldn't fit anyway. I had to buy light tabs from Piaa and mount them facing forward just outside the existing tabs. Its right on the edge where the riser starts to curve down so you have to mess with the alignment a little, but it works. Initially i wasn't sure that I liked the look on the riser with the extra light tabs and thought about removing it, but it has been growing on me.

Even still... It looks great. Thanks for posting the pics! I have been anxiously awaiting pics of the RI light bars mounted on the front of the WK2 for a while now.

I wish they would just play around and offer "CUSTOM" Light Tabs as an option.

If you are looking for something custom - I would just reach out to them - they build each one by hand, so could very likely meet what ever you need to do. They have plenty of spots to mount lights, and could move those tabs in, out or whatever. Just email their customer service group with the changes requested. I attached a pic of mine loaded with lights (and could mount additional ones below the light bar, etc....

Do you think a Rigid 20" would fit where you have the dually's?
