Vision X 20" light bar and Vision X mount. Very $$$ but the light output is ridiculous. I travel over two mountain passes with lots of deer and elk, so I figured the extra light was worth the expense. It is way to bright to ever use in traffic, but I'm on the road at 0400 so there is not a lot of other vehicles out at that time.

I just put a 42" light bar in my tradesman withOUT tow hooks. Bolted up with just a little tweaking to the brackets. Works like a champ. We will see how good the quality is on the light bar.

I dumped the factory hooks. They bend or misalign the bumper if you apply any load other then exactly 90. I used a curved LED light, the curve matches the curve of the bumper.

I have a front receiver used to park large trailers. I mounted a D-Ring there as a replacement to the factory hooks. ( I just installed the D-ring in this picture, its kinda too big for my likings. Had a smaller normal one before.)

Does that bar come with a harness or did you purchase was separately, how was wiring it up? I have the brackets that measure 42,5" between the brackets, but no bar. Do you have the grid heater plug, can you still access it with the light bar there?

I would think that the charge air cooler is the big loser when blocking that portion.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

It doesn't come with a harness. I got one from Amazon, less then $15. And I dont have the plug but there is a little space on the ends that I would think is enough for your plug.

Kodiak led has a 28" that fits perfectly between factory tow hooks.

Requires a bit longer tow hook bolt, so you can fit bracket behind the hooks
