Default We need Ford Performance to Make a Gen2 Light Bar
Like this...

What I'd like to see is a single bar running across (where this bar's lower bar is) so we could attach light bars below it (for those of us with front cameras) and above it.

For those of you Gen 1'ers or those who have been around you may be familiar with this Ford Performance Light Bar...

I want one of these for the Gen2! (Hello, any fabricators listening?)

Dude!

Have you looked at the Foutz and Impulse bars? They're DOUBLE bars not a single bar like the Ford Performance light bar.

Ford Performance Light Bar (Gen1):


Foutz Light Bar:


Impulse Light Bar:

i think the 40" RDS on top of the bumper is the best option for gen2

it appears to bolt to the tow hooks.. maybe it'd even work on gen2 with only slight mod..

The Ford Performance Light Bar for the Raptors was apparently only made for 2010 and 2011 Raptors. It's still available for $284.33

https://fordracingpartsbydonwood.com...15266-f15rbar/

If those brackets will fit the Gen2's front tow hooks mounting points (doubtful) we could start with one of these and have it cut and a new cross tube added with tabs for lights and then have it powder coated.

And if the brackets won't fit we need to have them made so we have a left and a right and then have our own single or double tube crossbars made with tabs for lights.

It's so rare to see one of those on a Gen1 that it's become kind of cool to me. I'm not a fan personally, but it adds that "retro-raptor" look for sure.

Maybe Ford just didn't sell many and that's why they didn't bother?

N-Fab make 4 different bars that fit the bill. They make them for straight or curved bars with or without the top protection bar.

I've included some pictures below:

Multi-Mount Open Top, Straight - $149


Multi-Mount Open Top, Radius - $199


Multi-Mount Closed Top, Radius - $249


30" Light Bar Closed Top, Straight - $199


The first three bars feature Multi-Mount so that you can mix and match various lights bars, cubes, or any type of surface mount light. The 4th bar can only mount a 30" straight LED bar.

The straight bar mounts can mount up to a 30" light on its own. We have a way to make it fit a 40" straight light bar on its own.

The radius bars can mount up to a 40" curved bar.

All mounts are available in either gloss black or textured black. Please let me know if you have any additional questions and we can get you set up!

The N-Fab mounts are nice if you donít like using your front camera. Once mounted, about 80% of your front view is gone.

the Impulse offroad bar obstructs the front camera minimally, but you do see the light bar. But the N-Fab bars almost total blockage. No worries if you donít have a front camera, but if you do have a front camera, you wonít be using it.
