Naw, not overkill, but does the job. I've got a pair of Hella FF4000 Cornering beams to mount down low too. The light bar is pretty much a prototype. The real deal is being made from tube stock and will be much stronger. It will also come out through the lower grill to give me a place to mount the 4000's. I was going to put the Hella FF HIDs on but figured they'd work better on my actual rally car.
