50″ OffRoad LED Bars light bar added to our windshield

Next up was the infamous 50″ Off Road LED Light Bar! Again we worked with OffRoad LED Bars (Olb) and picked out this 50″ Light Bar. The light bar comes with killer Olb brackets that mount in the rain guards inside the tops of the door frames. Unfortunately the Custom Offsets truck lives in a 7′ high garage… and with a 6″ lift on 33s – there was no way we could fit this light on those brackets and fit in that garage!! Remember this pic from when we first got the lift?

So once again it was time to get innovative and start thinking. Luckily we ran into Slammed Out Kustoms at a local show and remembered they did a lot of custom fab work. Using their new laser and lots of trial and error, the new Low Profile LED Light Bar bracket was born. Because it is roof mount (just like the old moon visors of the 90s) there was no added height. They were able to keep the entire low profile bracket and 50″ light bar about flush (give or take 1″) with the highest ridge on the roof! With a little Rhino Liner she was set for war!

As you can see the mounting holes in the roof are actually smaller than the wiring hole and the screws go directly into the structural roof support on the 99-06 Chevy/GMC body style, ensuring it’s not going any where. Although we have not started mass producing these brackets we can have a custom set made for this body style, they are sold here Low Profile LED light bar mount for 50″ light bar.

We wired up the 50″ LED light bar to the same switch as the 20″ and ran the wire up the A-pillar and under the headliner so there are no visible wires.

Next things we knew we were lighting up the whole neighborhood with our Off Road LED light bars and HIDs!!
