    I have a 42" curved light bar. Do yall know of any mounts for this? Or should I send it back and get a 50"?

    Have you checked Amazon? Called any fabricators? I'm sure someone can weld something up for you if not.

    Ya I've checked amazon. everything seems to be for a 50". I might end up drilling it into my hood. I don't ever plan on selling my truck.

    I have a 50" mounted on my front bumper, and one in my skid plate. I'm told that in the front is best location compared to above windshield, where light can be lost upward and hood will reflect it too.

    I was thinking on the roof, in my grille, in the bumper, but it just doesn't fit right anywhere. I'm returning the 42" curved light bar and trying with something different. Any suggestions? I just want more lights! Haha

    Where your westin bar is at replace those lights there with, 2 leds or like a 20 inch bar above the lights on that bar. Just a idea there for you if your not wanting to go extreme. Extreme I would think about above windshield mount one.

    Btw: good looking truck mine is like yours just a stepside.

    Is that the stock skid plate that came on your Pro? Did you just modify it for the light? If not which skid plate is that? I wouldn't mind upgrading mine. Is there an official "TRD" skid plate that's available? Or would you simply have to paint TRD on an aftermarket skid plate?

    The extreme route was the way I was wanting to go. It looks like 50" is the only way to do it. Hardly anything for 2003 tundra.

    I actually just took off my bull bar and I might just go new LED headlights and maybe a single row light bar inside my grille if that's possible.

    The skid plate was actually part of the front bumper package. The light was another option. I could have gone with no light and closed front or they had a winch option also. There is a TRD skid plate also available that came stock on my truck, but this option replaced it.

    Hey guys,
    I wanted a 42'' light bar mounted on my 2006 Tundra but also found NO manufactures of such mount. I did find a generic 50'' mount from customoffsets.com, they may of stopped making this mount as they admitted it was not a perfect fit, so it took some time to install.
