Windshield LED bars
 
Looking for suggestions and pics of Windshield LED bars.
Anyone have some pics ?
I've seen a few different website with them but not a lot of pics.

What is the common way/route to run the wiring for these ?

I'll have some pics shortly, my mounts are supposed to be here tomorrow, so I'll be test fitting them on Friday after work. Then off to be powder coated.

I have a 50" from Black Box Logistics.

Get with TxSt8TJ. He has one and has mounted it up. Hey may even be able to get you information on the light bar he runs (including pricing).

This is my light bar and mounts:

Black Box Logistics 50" DRX, for $550.
Poison Spyder 50" Mounts for $200.

I had to drill the holes out on the top of the mounts to fit the bolts for the Black Box Light bar. Then I drilled and tapped a hole for my mirror mounts as well. Still need to get my mounts powder coated.

When you spend a lot of time out in the desert looking for broken down race cars, you'll take all the light you can get at night. This is going to make my job much easier.

How do you like the BBL 50" DXR? Any night pics? I was thinking of the same setup.

Check this link. I just bought this Sky Cree 50" LED 300w flood/spot. Found some good reviews on it. The only complaint was that the mounts were flimsy. But we don't use them anyway to mount on Jeeps and the instructions were in poor English. Lol for $279 I'll figure the Chinese out myself.
Now it's ships direct from China from a company in China, but they rate very high on ebay. The ebay price was $286.00, I offered $255 and they countered $279 so I purchased it. Can't personally rate it, because it hasn't come yet. And free shipping.
At that price if I get a couple of years out of it, I'd still consider it a deal. Plus it only takes one douche with an Allen wrench or torx to heist your bar. So a Rigid bar for $1400 is out of the question.

It's not the windshield mounted lights, but I got a smaller Cree Led bar that I put on my winch fair lead for Christmas. I was super impressed by the quality for being a cheap Chinese light set, it's very well made, all aluminum and solid sealed casing and the wiring they had on mine was over kill if you ask me, it's probably about 6guage wire.

Roughcountry sells the mount

And dedc.llc sells the light bars ( eBay ) there out of Pennsylvania.

They use high quality led and they are very bright! I don't see the point in spending $600-1500 on a 50" light bar when you can buy them for $230 that have same quality. Light weight, durable, bright , and I know people who sell them around $400 so staying under $400 is key and using this 50" light all I need now is rear rock lights and my 2 4" Cree led spot lights up front seam to be way more then enough light but just how I want my set up to be.

And I have 2 Cree led 6" in my rear bumper for back up lights and they work well!! One thing I thought was cool too was my old KC blinded me on my window and the 50" I thought was going to be the same but worse and soon as I got in and flipped it on no glare!!! Just amazing it shines on the front hood but doesn't have that glare or bright blinding to your eye. Thought it was pretty cool
