Thank you! Sad to say yes the light bar has wind noise. I love the way it looks, but hate the noise. Wondered if the curved light bar would make the noise.

Hey, I had those mounts. WORSE decision of my life. I mean it is soon loud. I changed my mounts and got them inside the door rather than on the on top of the roof. COMPLETELY SILENT!
Hey Jack what light and mount did you use? Silent is what I want if I'm driving for two days strait.

Thanks
John

Dang I thought it was the light. I may have to look into getting different mounts. Will have to find ones that have the same mounting holes. I'm not drilling any more hole in my roof. lol

I like the look, very cool. Tell me what did you use to paint the Ram on the front grill with?
Did you have to remove it?

I have a rough country 50 inch light bar. yes the light bar is what makes the noise. but you can minimize it. get ADD offloads 50 inch light mounts and make sure they are 17 and an eighth up the windshield. or even better, get the light bar touching the windshield as best as you can. this makes it more aero dynamic and now my light bar is silent. also if your light bar is loud, twisting it up or down9(small slight ajjustments) can minimize it as well.

Rebel.law. its matched paint (but to me it seems alittle darker) it base coat clear coat. I took them off and used scotchbrite to sciff them up and then used adhesive promoter and then 5 coats of red and about 5 coats of clear coat. 4 screw hold the grill at the top and 2 clips hold the bottom. You have to take the cover off where the hood latch is also. Once you have the grill off you snap the middle section out that way its easier to work on getting the letters off. There are these round metel push clips you need to pull off of each leter. If you use needle nose plyers and your fingers to remove them. You have to be careful because the plastic is thin and can break easy. Then paint the letters and replace everything in reverse. I never made a do it your self tutorial but as soon as I get some time i will try to make a post. Hope it helps.

You could try to mask around them when they are on but it seemed like it may be difficult and it wasnt bad to take them off. I think i had everything apart and ready for paint in about 30mins.

No That Helps very well, I removed the top of the grill to get inside to install lights behind the grill, but then I removed them, as I didn't like the look.

Save money, buy a Mopar bed mat, or get a bed rug.

I had fun figuring this out on my own when I plasti-dipped my letters.

Holding up perfect, and it's been there almost 3 months. Still looks brand new.
