One would be nice but I don't really need it. I really only use my current light bar when I go fishing. I'd rather put that money towards something else.

Looks much better though with the basket dropped. One more thing cut your antenna or get a short one. Unless you are trying to get reception from space

How would you go about cutting it? Or best place to find a shorty?

Don't wanna cut it. May get a shorty but will it effect my reception at all?

I don't really even see it unless purposely looking for it. I don't really want to loose reception as I listen to the radio ever so often.

I use radio when I'm over my data. Or when storm warnings are on

Just went through your build thread. Sucks about your head gasket and heater issues, but glad to see you got everything fixed up! I guess I take for granted having a heated shop with a hoist at my disposal whenever I need it haha. I would have done all of those repairs for 1/4 of what you paid the shop to do it, but alas not everyone has the know-how or space to do it.

Keep at it man! I still have my very first vehicle 7 years later and I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Thanks! It cost me an arm and a leg to get everything repaired but it's running like a champ now!
