Cool Light bar with soft top

I am struggling to find a light bar that will allow me to open the top without releasing the middle latches of the soft top. Are there any out there?

By middle do you mean sunrider clips or header latches? I think all the ones I've seen work with the soft top.

Plus you already have a light bar in your avatar. I'm confused on where this new one will mount of you already have one

That picture is with the hard top. When I installed the soft top, the soft top does not open without releasing the sunrider clips located between the front and rear doors on each side. I removed the light bar today and the top opens as it should. My light bar (I bought the Jeep with it already installed) has tabs on the back to mount the lights. Those tabs do not allow the top to flip back normally. I considered cutting off the mounting tabs, drilling holes through the top and bottom of the light bar, and mounting the lights there, but it will raise the lights a bit and more importantly, the lights will not sit on a flat surface. So, I am trying to find a suitable light air to replace the one I have.

I hope this helps. I appreciate any ideas you may have or links you could point me to.

The PSC wouldn't work with his setup. It is made to accept a 50" LED light bar, yes?

He is using a light bar that accepts individual lights.

Something like the Olympic Light Bar should work.
