Light bar install.

Hey guys. I remember this topic being posted before but couldn't find it. I recently bough a 22 inch light bar from swlights and am excited to get installing. Anyone one done this before? Have a great mounting point, looking for any wiring advice. ThanksClick image for larger version

This is just my opinion but I kind of like it in a weird way. I don't know what application or situation you would use this, but at a car show would make it stand out. I'm sure it's not for everyone, but me personally I like the idea. If you go for it let us know how it turns out.

I would definitely be interested in this. I do a lot of driving on some dark country roads. This would light up the road a little bit more.

Yeah I gave the bar a test and HOLY **** is it bright. Like 3x my high beams. I'm sure it won't be as effective mounted in the bumper, but bright non the less

I wonder how hard it'd be to wire it to the fog light switch.

Not hard as long as you have the correct relays and resistors.

I think that looks pretty awesome. I would like to install one in the open area of my trucks bumper. Pretty cool on the mustang.

I was going to put one behind the grill of my Dodge Ram before the engine puked.

There should be a connector behind your bumper for stock fog light installs so you can use splicer connectors to tap into that or see if you can get the connecting ends from Ford or a junk yard and have an OEM type set up! Your lights should have 2 or 3 wires right?

I have never looked at the fog lights. I hardly use them so I'd have to look and see about the wiring.

Shouldn't need any resistors unless it will be connected to your turn signal relay. If you connect it to the fog light switch, it should be fine. That is, assuming it does not exceed the wiring capacity. If you are wanting to wire it separate and want it controlled by it's own switch, just make sure you buy a standard type relay, not a flasher relay. I'm not sure about all flasher relays, but most are built to flash rapidly when the resistance is low, basically so you know when a bulb is burnt out. This is why so many people need to add resistors to LED lighting on cars with incandescent lighting. The easier way to handle that is to buy an LED flasher relay (no resistance relay) to replace the factory flasher relay. Then you won't need to cut wires and add resistors that get hot.
