Take it out from behind the grill & you'll get a lot more light. Or if you want the protection, switch to a more transparent grill (ie big mouth w/honeycomb inserts - will block less light. Looks great!

Is it a rigid lightbar?

I'd like to get one too... and would like to get something for the rear of the truck as well as mounting a set under the trailer so I can see when backing it up at night.

NoPlugs- when I used to drive a tractor-trailer, the best lighting I saw for backing was a nice, bright floodlight on each side of the cab, facing rearward and angled-out about 40 degrees.
I bought some smaller LED lights I'm going to try mounting under the rear bumper on my truck, so I can see better where the rear wheels are. (Like finding the edge of the driveway.)

Eventually I would like an LED bar on the front of mine, too...

Already have a grille ordered but since its above the crossbar the only light loss is from the center bar and with my hood open you can't even notice the difference in light output I won't put it outside the grille bc that's just asking to have it stolen lol

Put that light outside the grill. You'll get more light. A buddy of mine has one and loves it!

Actually, everyone now has them..

there isn't a noticeable difference in light output with the hood and grille up or down so it's staying behind the grille i tested it before i mounted it and i'm not spending a ton of money on lights just to make them easy to steal lol

can't imagine it does seeing the 40 i have with brackets looks wider than that opening and i also have dual row lights which wouldn't fit well there
