Talked to Larry at Suspensionmaxx and ordered on of their Bullmaxx bars . I'm going to install some Warn 650D lights on it . Just wondering if anyone has installed this type of lighting on their Colorado/Canyon and how the install went ? Thanks....bob270win

Haven't seen those style lights installed, but they're typical off-road driving lights it appears. The install is easy and the time it takes only depends on how much detail (& how picky you are) about electronics.

Solder connections, heat tape what you can, wire loom exposed wires, & secure if you want the best guarantee of trouble-free lights.

What are you going to do to coat the BullMaxx?

I just took mine off the truck after a year and I am having it Rhino-lined today.

Larry , suggested some products from SEM Products , an etching primer and an enamel finish . I'll try that first ,depending on how it wears , we'll see what comes next ! It looks like the Warn kit has all the male and female connectors protected from moisture and it should be easy to install . I was more interested in hooking directly to the battery or a hot source from lighting .

You could hook to the mega fuse on the fuse box after the fuse. Always use a fuse on your new power line as well. That's all I got but if you need help with the install I'm around Kolb and golflinks area. I'm down for a bbq/ install lol

That SEM stuff he recommended didnt last for shit on mine. Chipped and rusting after one winter. Although you prob dont see any snow and salt in AZ like we do here in OH.

Spend the coin and get it powder coated or bed linered. Thats what I'm gonna do as soon as I get some estimates.

....or check out Monstaliner do it yourself bedliner.

I second this notion. I did the same recommended paint job. It kept chipping and rusting, and then I would have to scuff it and recoat it. I said fuck it and stripped it all down and used monstaliner. Haven't had a single issue with it yet.

I'll definitely take your experience with SEM into account before I coat it .Thanks
