My 2000 SES Bull has only 65k miles and generally doesn't present many problems. As she`ll stick around for a while, this what I hope the eventual end product to look like.
Slight Lift/New Struts and Springs
Suspension Overhaul
New Rims & Tires
Light-Bar
Black Detailing
Window Tint
215878

What do you fellas think? Anything else you guys can think to add or change?

Fyi, this is what it looks like as of now.. So Yeah.. A long ways to go. ;)

I'm worth the before crowd. Body-colored molding looks better on this car, and why would you put that light bar on a Taurus?

My opinion, if you really want to add a light bar consider putting it behind the slotted openings under the bumper. The location you show above the windshield is better suited for a pickup and I suspect the wind noise would be very noticeable. The tint and black detailing could be cool, but I'm not sure about the suspension lift. Are you sure you don't just want a truck?

^^^ I agree with Hornswaggle, There are tons of mounting options down low in the front where it is 'slotted'.
I put my running lights here, but you could have your mounts slide in and then the light bar span the front of the bumper...at least that way you wouldn't have to drill into the roof.
Not trying to discourage you, but I would be put in my grave if I had to drill into the roof myself :LOL:

Not Gonna Lie.. This is Fuckin Badass, I've Decided against the Light-bar up top, for more so the look you have here. However on the 2000 model the bumper is slightly different, so... i would get a bar that spans the entire width of the bumper, it would be behind the bumper itself. That way it'd keep the look consistent and the overall "Roundy-ness" would be kept in mind as well.

Update Everyone.. NO OVERHEAD LIGHT-BAR. I know you've all been requesting it and i now see the light! 😂 Instead I'll install one behind the air intake on the bumper, that way it'll be just as effective, wont disrupt the sleekness of the car and it'll be best of all.... LEGAL. Yes, overhead light-bars are illegal in my state. Even if they're off, its the very existence of them that'll get you a ticket. 😑 However ill still be installing DRLs; which ill get an image of for ya'll, and my new rims and tires are arriving tomorrow! You guys will for sure be updated along the way, and thanks for all the feedback and views, forums like this keep this community thriving, and hopefully we can fuel this club for years to come!!
