Windshield Light Bracket

Hello.

I just bought a front rock crusher bumper. Now there´s only place for 2 fog lights beside the winch. But I´d also like to keep my highbeams.

Do the fit on such a windshield light bracket besides my light-bar?

Thanks!

Here´s a pic of my actual setup:

Does the rockcrusher bumper have a grill hoop on it?

You can always weld light tabs to it.

its a bumper like this:



i don´t want the lights above the winch. since i have them there i´ve some temperature problems on the highway.

i thought it could look like this but i dont know if the lights will fit beside the light bar.



or i sell the high beams and use my work light on the lighbar as high beams. but that´s not legal over here.

I just looked at some pics and saw that it shold not fit. I would nee some brackets that mount to the lower part of the windshield hinge.





perhaps i could weld a bracket to the tube of the light bar...?

Hey Eric,

I honestly think you can use your lightbar in combination with these brackets without having to weld anything up. It looks to me like the windshield light brackets (pictured on mine below) can be placed on first, then just replace the 2 upper bolts (on each side) with longer ones, and position your lightbar holes over the windshield bracket holes, snug 'em down and go.

And hey, if the new bolts that you buy are a bit long, cutting them down to the perfect size is no problem right?

Just a thought.
You Have a Great look'n Rig by the way!
If you'd like to send your old bumper my way... feel free.

I think you are going to find it hard to get longer bolts. All of mine
had to be drilled and then I used a tap out to remove them. But if I remember right, the black button style bolt on the bottom of the top half of the hinge is a bit longer with the same threads...

Those light brackets made by Rugged Ridge are not that good. From expirience, they dont even fit. They are made in China if that gives you a hint. For me, the holes didn't even line up and yes I did have the right ones.
