Installed my 50" sr series using the Poison Spyder brackets. I drilled the cowl to enter the harness. You could lift the cowl vent assembly but the wire is tight once back together. Ill shoot a couple of pics tomorrow.

Is that a mirrored cover over the lights? Or is it just the picture making it look like that?

No the rigid covers are a shiny black. I see what you mean though!

So which is better, the amber or the white?

And which pattern did you guys go with? Flood, spot, or combo?

I have the combo and the patterns cover just about everything. Also mine are clear With the amber covers. The only thing I don't like about the combo is that you can not chose which lights to turn on, spot or flood, it is ALL or nothing.

I got this combo as well I'm using the Spod gave me control of which lights I power. Nice looking setup.

What do you mean? The 50" only has 1 power feed into it

you can kinda see in this pic - i cut the power/ground wire plug off the light bar, soldered a longer piece of wire on, and made a small hole in the weatherstripping just next to the a-pillar, and then snaked the wire down the inside of the a-pillar trim and through the firewall from the inside of the jeep. you can kind of see the wire in this pic.

i have no leaks or any extra noise from the wire. the light bar does make the soft top quite a bit louder though.

Got confused reading 2 seperate posts thought you had D2's as well wired into same circuit.

I talked to Rigid at a show and you can order any combo bar as a custom wired unit. When I order mine i will have the spot as one lead and the floods as the second lead. That way I can have either or both. It's ~$100 fee to do this, and you have to order direct....that's the only downside, no good discounts from vendors.
