30" Rigid E-Series installed with CJC Offroad brackets

Got my 30" E-Series bar installed in the bumper using CJC's brackets. I couldn't' be happier with the brackets, or the light. The brackets sandwich behind the tow hooks. The install too about 45 minutes working off the ground using hand tools. The worst part of it was threading the nuts on the top inside tow hook bolt. The brackets can be found here: www.cjcoffroad.com and they are very affordable.

For the guys worried about your high dollar light getting stolen, the CJC brackets capture the light. To remove it both brackets have to be loosened to allow the studs out. Rigid also sells security nuts for these lights. Sure, a motivated thief could sawzall the brackets off, or loosen them to get the bar, but locks just keep honest men honest.

The light in the bumper:


Illuminated:

Light output from top to bottom:
OEM Quad Headlights + Fogs
Rigid 30" Combo flood/spot E-Series only
Rigid + OEM Lights and fogs

Sweet. Looks awesome. I was worried about the 30" fitting between my tow hooks on my Sport. Second guessing now

Keep Calm and Chive On!

I wonder just how different the two trucks are? I couldn't imagine the frame or bumper/tow hook mounting locations being any different. Cody at CJC says they are working on new LED mounting options still, maybe a 1500 kit is in the works.

On the sport there is a bunch of plastic bumper supports stretching across the entire front end. I can't imagine you have all that mess behind your big chrome bumper. I'm gonna check into it though. I would love to upgrade to the 30".

Yeah, you're right. It's just an open space with a trams cooler in there
