@rydered: If you do decide to do it yourself don't hesitate to hit me up if you need some additional information. I wish I had some other people to hit up for information when I did mine.
@FFBoomer519: Doesn't take as much talent as you might think. The CAD drawings may take some practice, but they weren't completely necessary. If you have a pencil, paper, calculator and the right tools and equipment it can be done pretty easily.

I found a daystar one on eBay that says its from 04-06. But it should fit my 06 right. It looks like the same thing. Just can't find any info on it.

I ended up getting the smittybilt one. It sits lower than the other one. And it's adjustable. I'm just trying to see how far the distance is from outside light hole to the other far outside hight hole so I can maybe get a lightbar for it.

Hmmm, I personally like the way the n Fab one sits a little lower and it seems to flow a little better with the slight bends on the ends but I don't like the light mounts in the front.....I vote that Watson should start a little side job and make these bad boys....

If you can do that it'd be awsome.

Heck yeah. And sell them for like $75-80. They'd sell in a heartbeat.

You got 26.25" inches between mounting brackets. Not sure how a light bar would mount in the hole as it seems its all dead air space but then again I havent seriously really looked into it.
