Rugged Ridge Light Bar

I really have been considering this Rugged Ridge light bar for some time now, but I also want to run an led bar instead of the round lights on it. Has anybody seen it set up that way? If so, can you tell me if it looked good or not? Or maybe you can show me a picture of it! I really cannot find anybody anywhere who has done it this way.

I've got an LED bar on mine. I actually mounted it between the bar and bumper.

That looks awesome. What's your lift/wheel/tire combo?

I think I've pretty much settled on the same thing when the time comes, just with different wheels. Which lift...Rancho?

What led brand/model? Looking to do the same thing. How did you mount it?

I took a chance and bought it on Ebay from China. No regrets so far. Its a 20" combo beam, and its super bright. I got it for $210 if I remember correctly. To mount it, I had to make sure it had the adjustable mounts on the bottom. Not like most bars that have the mounts on the ends. The Rugged Ridge light bar comes with the three mounting tabs. So I flipped the LED bar upside down, slid the mounts to fit the RR bar tabs, and bolted it up.

Yea. Let me see if I can find him.

Edit: I can't look that far back in my Ebay history from my phone. If you search 20" led work light, it will come up with a bunch. This one in the link below looks to be the same exact one I have (same specs). They have actually came down in price, and this one ships from Texas, not China lol.

That is the exact bar I plan to be buying within the next few months! You gotta tell me how you like it when you get it.

As time permits could you post a link to the bar and lights.

I have been looking for a way to attach led lights to the bumper and this looks like the ticket.

Thank You!
