    I am assuming that you bought the Westin bull bar with the skid plate, if that's the case you can fit two 6" lights in there barely! As far as lights go I only have experience with PIAA and KC, here are the difference I have noticed:

    KC lights- cheap price, bad chrome plating so stainless is a must, awesome light output with high wattage bulbs rated at 100-130 watts. Easily available to purchase, and very popular among off-roaders.

    PIAA lights- Absolutely one of the best pre-terminated wiring harnesses out there, very simple hookup for even the beginner. High quality components, with an equally high price tag. Lower wattage ratings, means less output as far as performance. Great looks when on or off, which is a plus in the day time as well.

    Does anyone know if bull bars work in conjunction with body lifts because they usually mount to where the tow hooks are but i have spacers in place there?

    You know the bull bar looks good on the Classic Chevys, but I don't know about the new body style.

    Groceryman I absolutely love that bull bar! It is distinctly unique from the Westin one, the bars on yours are awesome looking. The absence of the skid plate is nice for a change, I think it looks really sweet! The KC lights are a good light as well, but those vinyl covers don't last long if you don't treat them. I used to use a marine grade vinyl protect for them, it just keeps the UV rays from eating away at them especially because they are black. :great:
