Companies do not make stuff for our 20 year old trucks.

Your best bet is going to be someone with old parts (ebay or Facebook groups).

You might lucky and find one used like I did but light bars like those are not really a trend like they used to be so fewer companies offer them and they very expensive. The one I have on my red truck is from a Chevy S10 and it fit perfect.

Mine is from a Toyota. It doesn't fit very well, but it works. I'm going to take it out and make a custom one that fits better and is more useful later.

That was my thought as well. I just had to really shove on it to get it in there, and then put some pieces of pipe nipple under the supports to make it long enough.

Nice! I like that kind of design a lot better than what I've got. When I build one, that's the sort of thing I plan to build. Hopefully that one is a direct drop in and isn't as tight as the one I've got.
