Default Homemade light bar

first i took flat steel and bent it and drilled holes in it.



Then I painted it.



Then i drilled 4 holes in 1" square tubing and painted it.



I then mounted the brackets to the bumper first before bolting the square tubing to the brackets.



Then i bolted the square tubing and put on the lights.

I like that, it saves the cost of a bull bar or something along those lines if you don't want to put the lights straight into the bumper

i dont know. i kinda justed eyeballed the measurements. all i used was a hammer to bend them and a drill to drill the holes. Home depot or lowes might actually drill holes for you if you give them measurements.
