    Thinking of getting a pushbar here in a week or two....

    should i go with black or chrome?
    (i think black cause chrome will rust and look nasty after a while)

    You answered your own question. The chrome ones will rust. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    CHROME just keep it clean and use a SOS pad on the rust /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    You might be able to find a stainless steel one /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    BLACK!!! if you're out wheeling and you scratch up a black push bar all you have to do is paint over it, but if you have chrome, you'll have to take it in to a chrome shop to get it covered up so that it stll looks good. besides, black is a lot cheaper.

    i have a pair of the 130 watt 8" pro comp's on the front of mine. they are really bright. don't know how they hold up to moisture, it's only rained really hard here once or twice since i put them on back in february. if you get these, make sure you use a relay with them. i didn't when i first wired them up and they were bright, but i after i installed a relay along with the pro comp wiring kit, they're twice as bright now.

    i'll trade you my sun and heat for your rain /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif the lights i used to run are the baja lights from autozone. they're like $25 a pair. they aren't too bright, i swapped out the 55w bulbs they came with for the 100w. it helped a little, but they never fogged up on me. they were enough to help me when i went wheeling at night.
