Diameter of Off-Road Lights?

Hi everyone,
My arctic came with 5 HID off-road lights mounted on top. I am moving them to the bumper and on windshield mounts. I'm putting a 50inch TruxTech light bar on top.
2 Questions

1) How do you measure the size of the lights? They are these lights : ORACLE Off-Road 4", 7" & 9" B08 35W HID Xenon Flood Light | 5611/5612/5613
I can't find a model number or anything on them

2) I'm looking for a front bumper mount to be able to put 3 of these lights on. I have been looking at Quadratec and found these. Keep in mind that they could be a pretty big light. And I need 3 of them.
1st option: Quadratec Exclusive JK-LMB - Auxiliary Light Mount Brackets for 07-14 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
2nd option:
Olympic 4x4 Products 183-174 - Olympic 4X4 Products Front Bumper Mount Light Bar for 07-12 JeepĀ® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
3rd option: MOPAR 123220RR - MOPARĀ® Light Bar for 07-14 JeepĀ® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
4th option: Rugged Ridge 11232.20 - Rugged Ridge Light Bar for 07-14 JeepĀ® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec



Thanks for all the help! Anything is much appreciated! I'm lost as you can tell!

The Olympic, Mopar and Rugged Ridge light bars are all the same. I bought the Rugged Ridge version and have three KC Apollo Pro lights (6 inch,100watts) on mine.

Do you think there is enough room for 3 slightly bigger lights on it? And how do you measure your lights? Is it 6 inches in diameter? Or what? Thanks for the quick response!

So just the lense size? And do you think 3 bigger lights would fit on your bar?

The mounts are eight inches on center. With three six inch lights, there is two inches between each light. So, if your lights are 7, they would touch. If they are larger, they won't fit.

when the mounts are installed on either side there will be 4"s if they were to be correctly and equally spaced

Maybe my math is off, but with 7" lights, wouldn't there still be an inch between them?

(6") 2" (6") 2" (6")

7" lights would put a half inch on either side of the light (3" radius (old) compared to 3.5" radius (new) ). .5" + .5" = 1"

So the new set up would be

(7") 1" (7") 1" (7")

-Edit for clarity

Between the two end tabs, you have 16" of workable space. You'll have one full light (16-7=9), and then two "half" lights (9-(3.5x2)), with leaves you with 2" left, spaced evenly between the lights, as seen above ^

I have a pair of KC HiLites SlimLite 130W spots mounted on the KC brackets. I like the way they look. Nice and clean, easy install.

I also have the KC windshield mount. Nice and solid.

There was a post a couple weeks ago of a guy using the KC brackets that mounted on the side off the windshield. They looked pretty good too.
