Mounting a 50″ LED Light Bar Above the Windshield of a Ford Superduty
One of the biggest trends recently is adding a massive 50″ LED light bar above the windshield of your street truck. Back in 2012, using the BMF Wheels Ford Superduty Show Truck, we decided to create a simple yet stylish mounting bracket for the Rigid Industries 50″ LED light bars. We at SoCal SuperTrucks never imagined how many people would come to desire this look and the utility of a LED light bar. With race car styling and design we created a mounting bracket that was reasonably priced while having superior quality. The 1999-2015 Ford Superduty LED light bar mount roof brackets bolt inside the door jamb of the truck underneath the factory weatherstripping which prevents water from leaking into the cab. This also is an anti-theft feature because the mounting bolts are not accessible from the outside of the truck. The Ford Superduty 50″ LED light bar mount brackets are low profile keeping the LED light as close to the cab as possible while allowing clearance for factory options. Here is a quick step by step process of how to install the 1999-2015 Ford F250/F350 Superduty 50″ LED light bar mount roof brackets.

The all New 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD gets a raise straight from the start thanks to CST Suspension and their 6″ lift system. The 2015 Silverado 2500HD got a face lift to match the 1500 trucks but keeps the same great heavy duty suspension as its predecessor. This Chevy was brought to us with only 10 miles on it and was begging for 35″ tall tires. Continue reading New 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 6″ Lift by CST Suspension→
Since the ’07-and-later Chevy Silverados moved from torsion-bar 4wd and coil-sprung 2wd suspensions to a shared coilover-type suspension, it has opened up the possibilities for the aftermarket to start making more performance products that will adapt into the factory locations of both suspensions. More easily can you now adapt aftermarket coilover shocks or aftermarket arms to your stock Chevy to improve the ride and travel of your truck.
