20" mounted to bar.

txag01 looking at 20" RI E series. What pattern do you guys recommend for it installed on front bumper (AEV bumper)?

NFRs2000NYC Here is a 10" on a poison spider fairlead mount.


I use it for lighting up the immediate area (50' or so) in front of the Jeep and about 25 feet to each side. Coupled with my spot 50" and my D2s on the pillars, I have my own personal sun.

I had a piece of flat bar laying around so i used that. I just messured the distance of the outside mounts on the lights, cut flat bar, messured the distance of the taps on the bumper, drilled em, plasi-dip em. Cheap and eazy

What is that bracket you are using to mount the D2's on your windshield? Haven't seen that one before...

OhSixTJ What kind of light output does it give off?

Design The ten inch light on the bull bar looks great.

Pittsburghwrangler I've thought about buying an led bar but I would hate to destroy one with a stray tree branch or something ($$$)... anyone ever had problems with that/found a safe place to mount one?

Greg__Berger My roller fairlead came with mounting holes in it for off-road lights. I'm planning a set of black box logistics 5" on the a-pillars and then a light bar on the fairlead.

No, he's got everything hooked up to a SPOD with custom switches. Look here http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/mat...ld-160398.html

Yes, the u-clamps under the bar is a great idea. As for on-road use, no way could you use the 20" or even the D2's. The vision-x fogs I have are really bright by themselves.

Heck, one of the reasons I keep mine covered is to resist the temptation of using them while on-road. Off road, they make it like daylight on the trails at night.

silver rubi Oh go with a 40 inch for your foglights.... The people driving in the other direction won't mind....

Off-roading.....20" is a lot for fog lamps, even if I had them aiming down.
02-11-2013 07:17 PM
ShaunWV I have been seeing more and more if these light bars. Anyone using then as dog/driving lights in place of the factory fogs? Can they be hooked up using the factory fog wiring?

BoarderMX Here is a rigid 20" (covered) on the AEV premium bumper. I needed to have mounts fabricated to line up with the mounting holes. It sits behind the bar for protection and just above the winch. Lots of forward light out of it and I like that it doesn't cover the radiator as much as 6" round lights to allow for better cooling.

silver rubi Not sure about mounting....I'm still trying to figure that one out on my Rubi. I think I'm going to mount two on the bumper. But check out Feniex.com. they're generation 5 LEDs I believe and bright as he$%. Titan series... Just my .02. Good luck.
