Those things are sweet, i may start saving for one. All these bars seem so pricey though! And honestly if this was all painted up black, got the right lights in it, and wired nice i think it could be just as good. The brackets i have are essentially the same but i guess these other ones do not require drilling of the roof correct? (other than getting wires up there)

No there is no drilling they mount to your rain gutters on the roof. I lookd into one but was like u and just built my roll bar myself. I like the carr bar

Go with some KC's , I have KC's on mine and they are bright as the sun man blinding light , my roll bar bolts in the corners of my bed and then flares out once its over the bed rails and the back portion bolts into my wheel wells , i think the style i have would look great on your truck
