    4 kc's and a light bar. Told the guy how to test them, he did and they are all good. Now I'm gonna have to buy some relays, wire, switches, fueses, and figure out how to properly hook them all up. Also gonna have to figure out how to mount that light bar. I hope I didn't overpay.
    thanks,
    James

    congrats, thats a hell of a deal. Steel horse light bar is what i have, pretty easy to bolt up. Where the light bar sits on top of that rain gutter lip, your gonna want to put something in between there, i had a little dynamat laying around so i used that, but some thing else of that nature would work. This helps prevent it from sliding and from metal to metal scratching. Wiring wise- i wired all of my top ones together, then only had to run 2 wires into my cab (through hole i drilled then siliconed- then i ran it down the a pillar and across up under the dash to a switch, then out to the battery with an inline fuse before the battery. Reason i did not use the relays was because i have a 160 amp alt.

    Was that light bar hard to mount? got any pics of how you mounted it to your chevy?

    I'll try to find a chart of how each type of light distributies light, one time I found a really good one.
    thanks,
    James
