Sure, but I've seen Jeeps with bullbars after accidents... The bar bolts and the crossmember are too weak against frontal impact if console is long.
BTW, lightbar looks perfect! Enjoy it!

Re: Custom Front Light Bar

Looks great man! I like it! If you want to give it a little more strength, you can run a couple supports straight back from the top corners, through the grill, and then to the frame (like the upper radiator support or whatever is solid back there). Kind of like what most of the Jeepspeed bumpers are like.

Are you planning on meeting up for some wheeling on the 15th? I would like to get a look at this thing!

Oh, and a front license plate... What's that!

Re: Custom Front Light Bar

thanks Omlete! I am talking with a buddy right now to do some exhaust work and when we do that we'll also take a look at giving my bar a little more strength... i was thinking about spot welding the bracket where it mounts to the tow hook brackets. I thought about doing what you suggested but i dont think it would be as "clean" as i would like.

Not sure yet about the 15th meet, where you guys headed?

Also, dude you dont get hassled down in SD for not having a front plate? I've got enough stuff to get pulled over for on my Jeep haha

Re: Custom Front Light Bar

I got a fix it ticket for not having a front plate on my XJ many years ago. I have since not had any problems. I carry it on the inside just on case someone does say something about it, then I can pull it out from under my seat and say that it just fell off and I haven't had a chance to re instal it yet! I really don't care though, plus with all my off road lights that I have that technically should be covered, I think the plate won't be the first thing they notice.

Here is a thread for the outing on the 15th:

Calling all SoCal Wheelers!

You should try to come out! We can check out eachothers rigs and I can help through out ideas for that bar.
