Looks good! How about a few more particulars. What size bar, how did you mount it, etc.

Yeah definitely!

Its a cheap 32" straight bar from Amazon that I got for about $55 for the bar, wiring harness, and switch! I just used the brackets that came with it and bought some self tapping screws to replace the bolts and nuts that come with it. I ran the wire through the grill and up into the engine bay. Ill take some more pictures tonight of the wiring and such incase anyone wants to see!

Nice! Looks great!

A handy place to pull wire into the cab is right next to the gas pedal area. There is a soft rubber boot for a wire loom that enters the cab that many of us have used as an access point for wiring.

Nice! Let's see it lit up! Show the beam pattern on a wall / garage door too. Curious to see what it looks like from the bumper.

Get one of these when you have the extra coin. Ordered and installed mine and it looks great! It will allow for other switches when you add more lights / accessories. Super cheap and really simple to install.

Auxiliary Lighting Dash Switch Plate

Here is my XK with the plate installed.

Found rocker switches on eBay for a few bucks each.

Quick test I did just in the driveway. As usual, the pictures don't do it justice! Ill take some more tonight on the road. I really got it because I drive at night on a small two lane back road with a lot of deer so it's nice to have it super bright. btw the headlights are Sylvania ZxE's!
