    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

    Very clean! Been thinking about this as well. Want to leave my tow hooks since my mc is unfortunately a 2wd.....love the non chrome look on your truck as well.

    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
