First of all, thank you to Manassas Jeep for this!

As you may or may not know, I won the MOPAR light bar at the Show ĎNí Shine! Although I had it installed within a couple of weeks, it took me a bit longer to complete this write-up. First, a review of the actual product.

Overall, I like it. Itís pretty sturdy and the installation was a breeze. The light bar raises up your fog lights pretty much inline with the headlights, and gives you three mount ďspotsĒ for lights. I had a pair of Hella 500ís lying around, so thatís what I used.

This is where I ran into the only problem I had. The mounting holes on the light bar were too small for the mounting brackets to slide into, so I had to drill out the holes a little bit. No big deal.

From a review perspective, thatís really it. Itís a simple, straightforward product.

Installation was even easier. It was, literally, a total of 8 bolts, 4 per side. 4 mounted the bottom bracket to the frame, and 4 more mounted the bar to the top bracket.

Top bolts

Bottom bolts

And that was it! 8 bolts and 15 minutes of my time. Thanks again, Manassas Jeep

Finished product
