That's rad. The lightbar in the lower front fits perfectly into that space.
I had to notch out the sides. That mouth as I call it, has radial sides and it decreases in width towards the radiator.

I do a ton of night coyote hunting. 6.5 Grendel with thermal does some work.

but getting out in fields and lighting them up when I’m tracking blood or just scouting terrain, having the enough light is the bees knees

and back country roads are littered with deer. Can see the eyes way before it’s to late.

Wiring them all up to control individual lights took the longest. Side lighting on/off, roof light bar on/off, mouth bar on/off, and rear light on/off (switch is on the left side by the mirror control).

"bllllinded by the liigghttt"


you know what im talking about!

too many? nah, just ask someone whos been broken down in the dark with no light lol.

my only concern about the "mouth light bar" is the possibility of it blocking enough air to cause cooling issues.

good hunting! the coyotes after livestock or what?

I don't think you will have cooling issue till you start pulling a heavy trailer

pull one very frequently. Have a 12’x6’ enclosed vnose I used every day for work.
Trailer is 1500lbs empty and I guesstimate 1000-1200lbs in tools and gear. And a additional 800lbs thanks to a solar setup I installed in it.

no cooling issues at all. Stopping is a different story though.

Not that hard to install electric brakes on a axle and use a hitch equalizer. Both will help keep you safe and under control. I have a single axle camper that I pull and has brakes

I couldn’t agree more. Looked into it already. I can install brakes of the trailer for under $200.

the main hold up i have to address is the brake controller. Havent researched it enough. Not sure where it ties into. Remember reading guys say their is a harness behind the passenger kick panel .

Yes on place to tap into for the brake controller if factory installed trailer hitch. Plug and play. Best site I know for that information is etrailer. My controller is no longer made.

Kinda off topic but what do you do with the coyotes? Eat them? Bury them? Or feed them to your other animals? Serious questions since I'm a semi-city boy :)
