52" LED Light Bar on the cheap

Light from Amazon:



Bracket Kit from Ebay:
1999 2014 F250 F350 Superduty 50" and 52" LED Straight Light Bar Roof Mount | eBay

Rigid Wiring Harness (very nice quality and good price)



This plug allows you to still use the water tight deutsch connection that comes on the RIGID wiring harness:
Deutsch DTP 2 Pin Receptacle Connector Kit EZ Crimp Contacts MSD aem NASCAR | eBay

Rivet Nuts to attach light brackets. I had my local fastenal store order these in for me no shipping charges either.
https://www.fastenal.com/products/de...diameter:310|~

6-1" 1/4-20 stainless pan head screws from local hardware store to mount light bracket.

Rivet nut crush tool: 1 1/2" 1/4-20 bolt, external serrated 1/4" star washer, and a 1/2" nut.

100% Silicon clear caulk: for the end caps on the the light bar. I removed them and put silicon caulking on the end caps then reinstalled. I also used silicon on the end cap screws and the rivet nuts.

I used the templates from these directions, it made it very easy to get them equally positioned on both sides. Be sure to print at 100% actual size or scale will be off on the templates:

The whole project cost about $165

Re: 52" LED Light Bar on the cheap

i ran them down the a-pillar on the outside under the weatherstripping. then into the passenger side fender where the connectors from the light and wiring harness meet. then across the engine compartment to the battery driver side.
Finally through a small hole at the base of the a pillar driver side and into the cab.

Looks good, and the price is really tempting. How's the light output?

The light ouput is crazy. The light is a very crisp white light, no yellowing. it has good side output and depth as well, I am very pleased with the setup!
