Bull bar installed...

Ordered a no name 3 inch bull bar and some westin lights from ebay. whole thing ran about $200. Made from quality materials and powder coating looks really good.
Directions are pretty self explanatory. However, I did find the powder coating resulted in needing to retap the threads in the welded on nuts. I also had to enlarge one of the holes on each side of the radiator support in order to obtain the correct angle to thread the bolt. Definately a two person job for the not so mechanically gifted. all in all took about 1 hour with all the extra work. I havent mounted the lights just yet because i will be taking my time with that part of the installation.

Thank you for posting this pic. If you bought from grille4you I got the exact same one a month ago but have yet to install it. I'm glad it looks good.

Not sure if the other brands will require the retaping etc or not. make sure you have a couple of hours, and charged up drill. Also keep a few rags around to place between ur lower bumper and the brackets so when you are adjusting them you dont scratch the plastic.

Looks good. Can you post the sellers name. I want to get a bull bar, and like the way this one sits. Some of them seem to sit way to low.

i believe all their bars have the predrilled holes for the aux lights. you can sometimes find a kit, but there was not one avail for me at time of purchase. i got the lights of a diff seller named grandma something.
