I have a VisionX 6500 lumin LED lightbar there and have not noticed any difference in the actual air flow or response from the truck when I get on the gas a little. It looks very clean to do it that way in my opinion.Not that I have seen but I have seen lots of people put the LED light bars in the open spot. Looks super sharp, functional and no one has posted in ill affects to air flow.
No doubt it does! And Welcome to the Site.

Bob- From what I have seen it is pretty common on the first couple of 1000 miles regardless of the drving style and environment to have some black carbon looking build up at the tip of the exhaust. I had the same thing going on but has almost completely gone away. Motor seems to run a little rich off the get go but balances out with time. Again I don't think you have anything to worry about as they have run the EcoBoost through the ringer that most owners wouldn't even come close to achieving in the lifetime ownership. Unless it is a massive about of build up and chunkes are flying out the exhaust like a Modded out Diesel there shouldn't be any issues.Has anyone noticed the black carbon deposit in the tail pipe outlet? We have a 2013 eco boost and drive it at highway speed the majority of the time. We have 3000 miles on the truck and find that carbon build up over time can do a lot of engine damage. The truck is great other than that and we have not taken it back yet for the first oil change. Thanks for any input. Bob In LA.
