Default Curved Led Bar In Bumper
I've seen couple guys using the removable cover space to mount light bar but I've seen straight ones... I mounted a 42" curved one off eBay and it follows the radius of the bumper pretty closely
Thought I'd share for anyone else curious
Took me about 2 hours +-
Easiest to take bumper off and put on work bench then fight it on the truck... it's only 4 nuts 19mm

Looks good! Thanks for posting size, been wanting to do this but wasn't sure on size. Did you have to make your own brackets?

I used the brackets that came with the light bar...I just bent the pieces that are supposed to mount to a flat surface at the angle of bumper bracket holes lined up and bolted it together
