led light bar hood mount

how would i mount a 30 inch led light bar to my hood?? i cant find any good ways to mount it to the hood that would be not that expensive. i dont want to pay $200 for the kc hood light bar mount thats just a little ridiculous, im kinda on a tight budget

eBay the guys out or Pennsylvania same as rough country he uses very very good quality led and 2 year warranty . I've had mine in the rain for past 2 days so far and doesn't fog up stays nice and bright and no leaks. Sealed really well I recommend this guys product. I have pictures I can email to you just pm me email and I can show you what I've been showing 5 others on here what I have set up so you can see a up close look at it all. For the money I spent I am really happy guys with this set up. I run 50" and 2 4" Cree led spots and really the 50" is all I need it just turns everything into daylight. The is no blind glair when it shines on the hood or my high lift it just really really amazing. Beats rigid any day on price and has same quality no doubt. Rigid is just a name to me.

how did you run the wires? you ran them in the top corner of where the door comes in contact with the windshield frame?

It fits well in the crevice and on the soft top it has a rubber gutter you can say so it's like a hole but line it through that "gap" and it tucks nice no leaks I took a hose to it ran water there and not one drop inside. Goes under the top over the bar down behind the door surrounds just un screw 3 screws and run down the back of it to under the glove box to the switch. Really clean and hid well. No pinch or fire hazard. I am planning on making a quick disconnect for it it will plug into the harness smoothly I will make it and send pics when completed

Rough country makes a bracket for $24 so you can run 4" or 6" spot lights aswell

Any 300w should pull 19k actual output lumens they all say higher because that list as raw lumens I believe idk my bro can explain every spec of a led ( 20k probably right if not doesn't matter it's 100led lol)

I wish it was 80 spots and 20 floods haha. Be cool when it's hooked up you will notice no blinding on the hood doesn't glare witch is one of my fears I had when flipping the switch. I am going to run a 10" on my fairlead aswell so I can point my 50" little more up to see what it does for the further view.
