Window light mount

Quick question, would a window light mount bracket listed for a 2011 fit on a 2012?

Talking about a windshield bracket? Certainly. No difference between the 07-12.

Personal preference and dependent on which lights you want. Hell, some folks run 8" lights up there. If it were me, I'd look into the Rigid Duallys.

Not going for that mounting location, but I'm looking at these lights as well.

I went with 5" KC's. Fwiw, they seem smaller than I expected.

Just wondering about these IPF's up there. Which model are they? Are those the dual beam as they say? If so, do you get much glare off the hood from the fog light beam. Which mount did you use. Thanks

ARB 968CSG IPF Auxiliary Lights. I like them because they are slim and cheep. They came with 55watt bulbs installed and with 100watts for replacements. They are not high/low lights. I don't notice any glare on the hood, and I bought the driving lights. I made the mounts and welded them to the light bar. I attached an updated pic

I'm planning on the 6.5 warn flood lights they look good and have a wireless switch so you don't have to run any wires into the cabin. They're goin for $155 on Amazon right now (spots or floods)
and the mounts you can get for like $25.
