Light bar 3rd hole. What to install?

I have the Mopar light bar with 2 PIAA lights. I am looking for ideas and feedback on a single LED light to mount in this location.

I hate having an unused hole there. Rather than cut it off and touch it up, I figured a 3rd light would go well there.

I was thinking something along the lines of a Rigid LED: SR-Q2 LED Light - Driving

I have 9" of usable space. Anyone fill the 3rd spot with something similar?

A spike, and the head of your enemy.

I may have been watching a bit too much Game Of Thrones recently.

Not a bad idea. But will it help with night driving?

Use it as a flag mount for off roading.

You could put a 6" light bar upside down on the bar. Or any light bar as long as it only has 1 mount. Here is my 20" underneath.

I have 2 deer whistles mounted on mine. I'm not sure if those things work or not but I haven't hit one yet and I see them on a regular basis

I like this idea. Place a GoPro adhesive mount on the tab and you're ready to film your rides.

One of these Lifetime LED Rectangular LED Lights might not look bad either. If it were me, I would remove the tab all together. I personally like the symmetrical look of two lights versus 3.

Another option would be a remote controlled spot light, if you can find one with a single mounting point that is sleek enough looking. That would be cool to have I think.

Let me know if you'd like quote on any of the Lights we have!
