Pardon the necro but I emailed SSDPerformance and they would be willing to build a light bar for our cars if you can meet them. http://ssdperformance.blogspot.com/?m=1

Hat's off to this guy. Love the look!

That's mine!!! My friend just stumbled across this thread. I know I'm a little late to the party, but if anyone has any question, I'd love to answer them.

Can we get a few more photos of the setup? Looks freaking amazing!

I always thought this was bad ass. I would have to say that I've debated doing this to my car on so many occasions after seeing your setup.

It'll leak a little if it sits still while it's raining. While moving it doesn't at all. And it only drips on the farthest side of the seat next to the door and on my rubber floor mat. I keep a towel in my car to put in my seat if it's raining and it's gonna sit out for a bit.

I did a little 12" led light bar in the grille and I love it. I could have done the 18" or 24" but my shop didn't have them in at the time. It works great on the backroads especially on foggy nights.

You can kind of see it here.

I was thinking of ditching the amazon special ripoff light bar and go with a couple of Baja Designs 3 inch cubed Squadron pros in a driving pattern and maybe a ten inch super spot for mile plus range
