Default LED light bar in lower bumper questions

A huge thank you to everyone who will chime in and give some help to my questions. First I want to start off saying what a great forum this is, I just recently bought my first dodge. A 2009 ram 1500 slt. I have done a lot of searching on this matter and really haven't came up with the direct answer. So im hoping to get it from making this thread. I am wanting to install a 20" or 30" LED light bar in the fron bumper area. I am wandering if anyone has done this to a SLT bumper without the tow hooks? Doesn't seem like there is a ton of room in there, maybe someone can point me to a link? maybe some pictures? Also if I do install the light bar will I be able to install tow hooks? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Crap.. I remember seeing this done before, I am trying to remember where. The tow hooks would probably all depend on the size of the bar you go with. If I find the thread with whoever installed there lightbar, I will post it here.

Badjuju is one member who did it, i also saw a 20" on a sport where the mounts lined up with the bumper mount, and if im not mistaken a 30" will squeeze in nicely with tow hooks

im not sure on my 2012 the plastic valast that inserts into the bumper is much different than on my 2014...its much smaller on the 14, also i think i saw a guy used the 40" bar but that whole insert removes then you cant fit tow hooks either...i remember seeing it but theres just not many people that have done it yet its kinda a new trend but im really likeing the looks of them and may be something i do down the road

I managed to get a 20" dual row light bar in the bumper but there's a lot more room to get one in there on the Ram 2500's. A single row light might fit in the SLT bumper. I got mine from KIRSCH LED Lighting and they had the dimensions listed. Check them out and you can size it up.

**If you buy from them and send them a picture of your ride, they'll put it on the site.
