Default Custom front light bar

I've been toying with the option of a front bull bar for a couple of lights, but there is a size restriction that I'd like to overcome. Has anybody fabbed up a custom light bar for their trucks so they can mount more than just 2 small lights? Say, a couple of pairs of Hella Rallye 4000s or something that big?

Yeah I'm afraid of the dark...

I found one pic on the net showing something like it.

yes, hella 4000's will fit on the lightbar shown in the pic.
if four 6 1/4 inch hella 500's fit, then two 10 inch hella's will fit no problem.

So the lights are basically your grille....nice haha

Thanks for the feed back guys, I'll be looking behind my grille to see if there's anything to mount a bar to.

I also noticed the grammer error on that decal in the picture. Hilarious!
