Adding a light bar to a modern vehicle has proven to be something of a hard issue for a lot of owners of European, Japanese and American delivered vehicles.

As modern headlights are LED-based, a lot of manufacturers use LED headlight controllers built directly into the headlight. This means the conventional “High and Low” analog power wires once tapped off for your driving lights aren’t available.
