Light Bar ||| Extra Lighting.

Alright, so I finally purchased my first Jeep! She's a 1998 TJ in excellent condition. Color is gun metal pearl, i believe is the technical name for it. I'll post pics soon..!


It's got front and rear bumpers already and a winch..
I added two generic foglights to the bumper.

For my first real upgrade I want to add a light bar on top for 4 lights.

I'd like opinions on what to use and how to do it?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advanced.

Most "up top" bars mount to the windshield hinges. The torx screws that hold them in place are notorious for causing problems. Search this forum for "windshield hinges" for tips. THIS THREAD will get you started.

I used a warrior light bar but ended up chopping it down and drilling it out to run all the cable internally. I'm not a big fan of the wire being exposed. Mine runs out the passenger side through the windshield bracket and then goes in under the windshield to the cab and then through the firewall to my relay board under the hood. Warrior sent me new bolts to bolt on the brackets over the windshield hinges. I didn't have any problems but to each their own. I love the overhead light bar. Best of luck!!
It's hip to be square.
