    After 7 years of driving my Gen 1 pretty stock I bought a ADD Lite from bumper today. It has to spots for lights or you can put a 42" curved bar on it. I like the idea of the 42" bar to cleanness. But I also want some amber cubes. I was thinking 2 each side of whatever size bar would fit in between. So do I do it that way, wire up the 4 amber lights to 2 of the aux switches and the bar to 1. Or do I do a 42" bar and slap a amber cube on each side of the A-pillars? Thanks

    Tough choice

    On one hand 5 pairs of lights gives you the opportunity to have different styles. You could mix spot/wide cornering/driving in there and have control over what lights you use based on the condition you need. We offer free harnesses with the purchase of 3+ pairs of lights (so makes it easy to wire them up to upfitters/relay panels)

    On the other hand. I had a 40" Baja Designs OnX6 Dual Control Bar and loved it. You control it from 2 switches (OUTTER/INNER LIGHTS) and it was AWESOME.

    Here is my ole SuperCharged demo truck running the OnX6 bar. It just looks badass.

    We have plenty of lights in stock so shoot me a message when you decide which way you want to go. I know I was probably no help because I like both options :) But hey... another POV from someone at least.

    40” Baja Designs all wide corning lens in the bumper. BD doesn’t make a 42” light. And, BD squadron spots on the hood mounts/ a pillar.

    If that out out of your budget, then start with the 40” light. Work your way up. My main advise is to spend a little extra $$$$ to get a quality light.
