Will335i It looks like the mount interferes with the soft top closing properly. Can you shed some light on that?

Also, do you remember the ebay member that you bought the mount from?

I appreciate the help as I am looking at doing a similar set up. Your jeep is definitely an inspiration and looks bad A$$!

Gold Miner ... let's face it, I won't be happy until the lenses are made of Diamond.

The rocks here are made of granite and quartz. Much harder on the Mohs hardness scale.

Gold Miner I like these LED systems but without an available protective cover.... I'm out. Hopefully in the future they will offer it as an option or simply provide a lifetime lens warranty if they're indestructible. For that price they should be indestructible or back it up with a no lens breakage warranty, or.... simply offer covers as an option.
A semi throwing variable rocks at 65mph coming toward a vehicle moving the opposite direction at 65mph breaks stuff. Happens here frequently. Lights that have protective covers don't break. The lights are only for offroad use, that's when the covers would come off.
For now my money will go toward PIAA lighting which have inexpensive optional protective covers available.

a) lifetime guarantee of lens
or
b) Protective hard cover for hwy use
A "400 mile offroad race" is not the equivalent of several years of 65mph driving on Colorado highways.
Is this polycarb lens stronger than my windshield? Doubtful, very doubtful.
A hard cover for hwy driving makes perfect sense to me for protecting an investment of this nature. Other various manufacturers of lighting offer lens protection options for obvious reasons... obvious to Coloradans anyway.
Sound like you needd to pony up for a Rigid then.

"Blunt Force" - Torture Test 1 - Rigid Industries - YouTube

Here you be the judge. (This is for Rigid, but they're all built with the same design.)

You're right it's not equivalent, it's much harder on them when you're going 100 Mph through the desert with other trucks throwing rocks at you. A Lens isn't a bad idea, but I've seen these keep working on buggies that have rolled at 110 Mph.

I live in Salt Lake, so I know all about the Rocky Mountains. Nothing on our highways worries me about the light bar I'm putting on my Jeep.

aTX427 Same here - just one more thing to lose or have to take off before use.

Don't know about this one, but several different brands of LED (Rigid, KC, Lazer Star) light bar just survived a 400 mile off road race I was at. I wouldn't be worried in the slightest about the highway.

Illumination LEDs is in the process of making a cover for them. They will be available in clear, red, amber and possibly blue and made of polycarbonate.

I found it on eBay. You can order them with various light tab options. I liked the low profile design and how it guards the windshield, which I recently replaced. The light bar was easy to install once you get the windshield bolts out. It reuses the lower bolt locations and you can either use self tapping get screws at the top or install nutserts like I did. The seller is on Pirate and they are fabricated in Houston.

2500hd I have a Rigid LED mounted up high on my Polaris Ranger and even though it is half the lenght it is def enough to turn night to day. Especially when plowing with the white snow.
