Well i can say that this build has been fun.. currently im the only cruze in the world with 3 light bars.. i love the way they look on my car and they come in handy when im goin off road out in the Florida everglades.. Heres some pics. I know theres alot of people who think its stupid so keep your negativity to a minimum please.

I will be adding lights to my lower bumper due to the previous owner hitting something. Broke the lower part of the bumper off and lost the lower grill. Im going to try and replace the lower grill and then find a very thin led light bar or a pair of led foglights. It looks cool just not for me. So cruze on and enjoy what you do nobody needs to love it except the person that owns it.

Yes there is a way.. ive seen the concept on a fj cruiser down here by me... u need a cargo rack/cage and u mount the lights to that. Only thing is ud have to use smaller bars like 20 inchs or less

Is it possible for a top one to make a slight V shape to light up the sides? Seems like you have in front of the vehicle covered by the other two.

All my light bars are as followed from top to bottom.

42in curved 400w ( 5w osram leds)
24in single row 120w ( 5w cree leds)
22in double row 120w ( 3w epistar led)

All from ebay ranging from 70 to 160..
All connected to complete individual wire harnesses with relays n inline fuses.


Where did you get your bottom grille light bar? How long is it? And how did you mount it? Looks sweet

You could stack them five high on the roof too.

Actually I have a 20" one (126watt) between the tow hooks on my truck as a fog light.

The look is actually not bad! I like the light in the upper grille. Did you have to drill out any additional holes in the grill (the bee hive plastic in the grille) to make it fit or could you use the factory opening for it? I have a 2012 eco so I think my grille cutout is smaller than other models

also can you take a photo of your control center, where your switches are to turn these bad boys on

Well what i did was remove the bumper... took the grill off.. removed the 2 square pieces that are behind/ attached to the grill... mounted the lightbar to the front support brace.. then reinstalled the grill and bumper... you do not have to cut anything on the grill.. the 2 square pieces just pop off.

Made my own bracets.. mounted them underneath the weather stripping on the roof.. ran the wiring down the side of the windsheild.. ( the wires tuck perfectly in the gap. ) ran that to the provided wire harness.. then ran the switxh to thw inside... currently im using the switch they provided.. but gonna change that to a toggle switch soon.. ill post some pics of the switches i currently have.. each bar has its own switch..

The red and blue toggle switches are for each of the grill lights..

The push button switch right by my hazard lights is a tempory switch that came with my wire harness that controls the roof bar. I really like the location, casue since my car is stick, my had is close to that area.. so if i need extra light ita fast on and fast off
