Cheap Light Bar

I read somewhere that you can make a light bar for a stock front bumper from a shower handle? Anyone have any experience with this? I'm looking to add some 6' KC Fogs to a light bar.

IIRC a powdercoated light bar from Olympic with 2 light tabs, and the correct spacing for mounting to the upper bolts on the front bumper is only 50-60 bucks.

Why not go that route and avoid the hassle of trying to adapt something that wasn't meant to be???

Obviously. Just trying to inject some humor.

I like the Olympic bar that's around $90. But that seems a little expensive to me for what it is....

The thing I don't like about it is that it sits kinda low.

That's what I wanted; mostly just a light mount.
