-Light Bar- Questions

I just bought my 2000 Sahara and the first thing I want to do is add a light bar on the top. Nothing to high, something relatively low with at least 4 lights.

This is also my first toy so I have some pretty dumb questions if you ask me

1.) Do light bars come with lights to put on them.
2.) Does anyone have any ideas where I can start looking for one like that?
3.) Would a car modification spot be able to do everything for me or should I?

Light bars do not come with lights on them. You will probably spend more money on 4 lights than the bar. I got Rugged Ridge bar and lights for about $350. KC lights are very good also, just more expensive. Make sure everything is stainless or chrome plated. Go to shopjeepparts.com to find what you're looking for. I wouldn't take it to a shop unless you have no idea how to do the wiring. Mounting the bar is easy. Find a buddy to help you do the wiring. It's not difficult, I just wanted the end results to have no wire showing and look as close to factory as possible.

True enough. Black is better in some cases. I have two Wranglers - one has chrome and the other has no chrome. Personal preference.
