Finally got around to installing a 30" Double Row LED light bar behind the grille, a hella horn set and fog lights. Hardest part for me since I've never done this before was removing the glovebox and frame for it to insert the fog light relay. Let me know what you think!

Just FYI for those with a 2017 Forester XT: there are two small horizontal holes on each side of the bumper frame to use as a mounting point. I simply needed to buy a 2 washers in order for the bolts to hold firm. Used locktite thread locker as well. No need to drill at all!

What are the specs on the light bar?
It is advertised as 220W 18000LM Spot&Flood Combo. IP68, Dustproof, Shockproof. Stainless steel screws with CREE leds. I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on bar so I got a basic one on Amazon. I still have to test how far the light output will shine. But seems bright enough at first glance.

Here is the one I ended up getting:

Also I bought this harness:

FYI, the bar he mounted the light to is not the same from year to year. On my 2015 it has no holes to access it from. I had to use self taping screws to mount mine. Thankfully they haven't come loose.
