50 THE SHOP AUGUST 2017 T oday's light bars are the new shining stars of the restyling world. Stylish and functional, systems can be configured for any truck, Jeep or SUV— either as standalone add-ons or integrated into bumpers, grilles or bull bars. Drivers no longer need worry about dark, lonely roads or night falling on the trail. At the flick of a (custom) switch, bright LEDs show them the way. Complete install kits and custom brackets make life easy for installers, and the upsell opportunities for upgrade and/or comple- mentary products are enough to make any shop owner smile. Here's a little more on the hottest light bar products available to the aftermarket, and some ideas on how to take full advan- tage of this bright category. FX Products Exeter, Pennsylvania Jane Donnelly Director, Automotive Private Brands Our hottest light bar product is… …TrailFX Premium LED Light Bars. These are available in a variety of lengths, single- and double-row, and both straight and curved styles. Its best features include…. …an aerodynamic, cast aluminum housing that greatly reduces the wind noise com- monly associated with light bars, and side- emitting LED technology that makes more efficient use of the available light produced by the 3W OSRAM chip. Light bars are currently a popular upgrade for trucks, SUVs and Jeeps because… …they are versatile, affordable and make a big impact both in function and style. They can be mounted separately to hoods and rooftops or integrated into bumpers and bull bars—TrailFX offers both options. Having high-quality auxiliary lighting on a trail at night can mean the difference between getting stuck and getting home. An illuminating look at the rising light bar market.
