    Wondering if anyone's done this on an lx just bought a 2016 and want to have the light bar controlled by the high beam switch. On the wife's 2012 Hyundai accent it had a power and signal wire that had to be run to the negative. Wondering if the optima is like this as well. Thanks!
  3. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Picked up a fat RSB from Korea. Can't find a single article/video about installation and it's icy AF outside so I haven't peeked underneath yet. Any tips or tricks I should before I go to my borrowed garage space tomorrow? I've installed a RSB before but the car had a rear beam so it was a...

    I just put in the ultra strut tower brace and rear sway bar and thought I would just upgrade the 2 bushings on the front sway bar. My question is do you have to drop the front sub frame to do this since it looks like the brackets are on top? The only info I could find was for the oem RR on the...

  10. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    So after seeing a couple of guys on here with lights bars I decided to follow the trend. Lucky for me a friend had a new light bar to donate to the cause(30" 180w combo). I am just doing some test fitting and final mounting and then painting parts and wiring. For those who ask why I need it...

  12. DIY : Appearance And Body Modifications
    Finally got some things all installed and wired up. 30" LED light bar in the grill. That took some work. Had to drill into the bumper to mount steel brackets. The bumper is no joke. Melted a few bits in the process. Also put switchback bulbs in the turn signals, then wired them to a switch so I...

  14. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Can you guys please give me your two cents on which tower bar is better. I'm looking at purchasing one in the next 3 weeks. Ultra racing or kinetic? Anybody have experience with either? Feedback is welcome please. Is there more benefit with the kinetic because it bolts to all 6 tower bolts?
