Love this idea, think for me I'd have to find a way to wrap around the inside of the windshield frame. Have a soft-topper and there's a small gap at the front of the half door upper sliders that could benefit some extra steel. There's also a possibility of adding in some mirror relocation mounts as well... Think I've got another project here... Great work YJ.
Damn auto correct...

I love the idea. I am wanting to make something similar. Would it be possible to get some morre pictures of the attaching to jeep, construction, and wiring location into jeep?

|yjJEEPyj||Anything i can do to help CaseAce! GL on your Bar! when you get it finished throw up a pic so i can check it out! Oh and.. I Recommend.. Making the top Bar (the Gaurd) A inch or inch and a half taller.. I would of liked mine a little taller because its blocking some light.. But it depends on the angle of the bar.. And how offset forward it is.|

wow! haha thanks jyJEEPjy
when you give dimensions, you dont mess around!
haha But I appreciate the time you spent labeling it all out like that, I feel 100% confident now that I can repeat what you did and throw a baddass lightbar on my baby

|03-08-2012 01:33 PM|
|yjJEEPyj||Thanks Gypsy. Next up i will be making Front cage And supporting the rear passenger cage more. I'll prolly have that Under my build thread.|
|03-08-2012 01:15 PM|
|Jeep_Gypsy||Great project and it looks top flight, That said when I get some metal I will be doing this.|
|03-08-2012 10:55 AM|

|yjJEEPyj||I'v personally never folded my windshield down.. So i didn't even think about that!|
|03-07-2012 10:31 AM|
|kjg26||Any issue with collapsing the windshield frame by bolting it all the way through. I know some people have drilled and tapped holes and threaded a short bolt in.|
|03-07-2012 09:53 AM|
|yjJEEPyj||IT's 78 degrees out! im going to go wash my girl|
|03-07-2012 09:52 AM|
Ok heres the diagrams
Heres what that bolts look like on the inside of the frame
This is what i messed up on first time.. I didnt think about the Frame being narrower at the top! So what i did was cut the angle iron first.. Drill the whole bolt it on.. And tack it all up on the jeep then take it down and finish weld evrything else.
|03-07-2012 09:15 AM|
|yjJEEPyj||I'll make a Diagram today of all the sizes if ya want that. The angle iron is 1 inch and i secured it by drilling two holes threw the windsheild frame on each side i'll take pics in a sec. Your powder coating shop sounds Awesome! good for you! 8x8 is huge!|
|03-07-2012 07:54 AM|
|yj95wrangler||Yeah I took a chance a couple months after I graduated high school and opened up my own powder coat shop. I bought a brand new spray booth, powder coat oven, powder coat machine/gun set up and everything. my #1 oven is 8ft wide 8ft tall and 20ft long my #2 oven is 3ft by 3ft by 3ft. That was 10 yrs ago this yr and still going strong. course at the time I was only the 2nd one in Arkansas doing it to the public im still the only one within a 100 mile radius.|

|95YamJam||Looks great! I like to light protector. I swear that when I see jeeps with light on the top that they have ripped off more than one.|
|03-07-2012 06:05 AM|
|kjg26||What size angle iron did you use and how did you secure it?|
|03-07-2012 04:44 AM|
WOW great build!
Could ya do me a favor and tell me what sizes you cut everything? (ignoring the light brackets)
It looks really great and I wouldnt mind building something like this for myself!
|03-07-2012 02:05 AM|
|yjJEEPyj||dont you have accses to a welder xpress?? And Siffo I originally had the light bar painted red.. It almost seamed like.. To much red. So i sandblasted and painted black. But i May redo it and paint certain parts red.|
|03-06-2012 10:51 PM|
|Siffo3012||I have a white yj with black and red accents. Nice to see I'm not the only one. that top bar would look nice in red...|
|03-06-2012 10:38 PM|
Build one for me??
I've been looking for a light bar that holds 4 lights, but I'd rather not pay the $160+ companies are charging for them. Plus I need one that can hold HID ballasts somewhere, as I intend to fit HID lights to the lights.
|03-06-2012 10:14 PM|
|yjJEEPyj||Yea i'm wanting to get it powder coated! My buddy has the whole kit he does car wheels and smaller things localy.. But his oven isnt big enuf If i had my own pipe bender Id love to Make and sell a few things! but running back and forth the the local metal working shop gets old quick!|
|03-06-2012 08:39 PM|
|yj95wrangler||$100....Cheap enough and its a 1 off custom, cant go wrong there. Now if you only lived here in Arkansas, I could put a mean powder coat finish on that thing.|
|03-06-2012 08:38 PM|
|YJmaddness||Ill ordèr 1|
|03-06-2012 07:37 PM|
|blazerone22||I really like that... Came out stellar!|
|03-06-2012 06:13 PM|
|yjJEEPyj||Thanks! Spent about 100$ in metal and thats about it! I cut and redid like 7 times cuz i didn't like certain things. It wouldn't take nearly as much work next time|
