LED bar on front bumper or bull bar.
 
Looking for mounting ideas for LED bars on the front bumper or bull bar. I have a Smittybilt M.O.D. bumper but any pics of 12 or 20" LED bars mounted would be cool.

Thanks!

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.

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.

I got a 20" from Jeepaddons and mounted it on the bull bar with the 20" Rigid Industries u-shaped mount.

Cool. I will check em out. Do you use it as your fog lamps at all or is it strictly for off-roading?

I've seen this one which could work for me but I'm not sure what's involved yet.

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?

Off-roading.....20" is a lot for fog lamps, even if I had them aiming down.

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

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.

Sorry to hijack thread. Didn't want to start a new one. Thanks for the info.

Thanks! This looks good. Anything special I need to buy to attach it to the bumper? Also, did you wire it to the stock fog switch?

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

I picked up my 22", 5000 lumans light bar from truckandwinch for $250 including harness. Very bright. The mounting tabs on the spyder bumper(with winch mount $250 form same place) is 10" apart. The light came with mounting brackets but they were 22.5" apart so I had to make my own mounting bracket. Eazy. The winch is a Recon waterproof 10,500 lb ( $400 same site) First picture of the light is low beams, second picture is high beams, third picture is led lightbar.

Nice light .

Greg__Berger 04-04-2013 02:48 PM

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.

Scratchkenny, how did you make your own mounting bracket? i am ordering same bumper and have same light bar, and just realized it wont work with the light tab being so close.

Pittsburghwrangler 06-29-2013 06:42 AM

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?

Design 07-02-2013 09:26 PM

The ten inch light on the bull bar looks great.

OhSixTJ 07-05-2013 12:06 AM

What kind of light output does it give off?

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

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

Here is a 10" on a poison spider fairlead mount.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7316/8...2b6af77e_b.jpg

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.

txag01 10-14-2013 03:10 PM

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