Lightbar Fit & Look
55” Lightbar on F250-550 Series Trucks:
I have received many questions about what the F Series 250-550 looks like with a 55” Lightbar on it – So we placed one on the truck and took some reference shots for people to take a look at:
It is important for people to understand that lightbars must be sized to the vehicle and also must take into consideration utilization of the proper strap kits and mounting feet. These days we offer many different kits for different vehicles so make sure to ask.
For the F Series we recommend a 55” series lightbar based on the overall proper fit and look when on the vehicle. Remember that look is important, but more important is getting that corner warning light out to the edges of the vehicle.
Some have also asked about extending the strap kit bolts and this is not recommended unless the manufacturer supports this. Aftermarket bolts can cause damage to the vehicle or the lightbar and can also fail.
|Proper position for most applications is mid-ship for Extended and crew cab applications|
