New Defiant Light bar

I installed my new Defiant light bar, Paul Fox from Defiant gave me a good deal and his company provided me with excellent customer service. He offers another model for the Titan. His website is: Defiant Truck Products - Defy Terra Firma!

Thanks for your comments, I installed 7" lights. I was going to get me some expensive lights. However, I think they would be easy to steal. If you guys know of any way to secure them let me know and I will get me some Light force or Piaa.

Re: New Defiant Light bar

Would you mind taking Pics of where this bar mounts onto the Titan?

I've never seen this utilization of existing holes as far as I can recall. I may want to put a custom made video camera/light mount up there.

Re: New Defiant Light bar

There are 4 threaded holes on the front of each frame rail. There are brackets that bolt there and the bar end bolts onto those brackets...You will loosen/remove a few bumper bolts but you don't have to actually remove the bumper...(bolts "A" and "B")

In fact I did the installation by myself, It would've been easier with someone helping me but my kids had better things to do. I am really happy with it and I see many Armada and Titan owners looking at my rig as I am driving around town because the options for light bars for Titan and Armada are very limited. Aside from the boring bull bar where you would have to remove tow hooks and skid plates and imo are valuable items on a truck. One thing about this light bar is that the install is very solid.
By the way my truck was selected by Paul Fox the owner of Defiant light bars to model this particular model of light bar on his website.

Re: New Defiant Light bar

Great info guys! I started with a Bull Bar and Hella 500's for a Ruggged look, but really missed having those Tow Hooks. Later, I went with a sportier street truck image, sold the Bull Bar and reinstalled the Tow hooks. You just never know the one time you slip into a ditch in a snow storm, they will make it a lot safer gettting towed out. I never knew of this other mount location. Congrats on the publicity asther00!

I'm feeling much smarterer now!

Re: New Defiant Light bar

Im a fan, installed mine this past summer installed LF lights. Install was a breeze, even by myself, good sturdy install that does not shake at all, and tow hooks stay put.
