Help! Need a hood mount for a 30" light bar

I picked up a 30" light bar, and want to mount it to my hood, without drilling into it. Who makes one?

Help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know of any for sure, but the Rigid 20" hood mount would probably be really close if the brackets were mounted on the wrong sides.

I don't know if your going to find something that wont require drilling into your hood should you want to mount it there.

Whats wrong with drilling into the hood?

Don't want to still the hood because down the road, if I eliminate the 30" and mount a 50 on the windshield, then I'm stuck with holes in my hood.

Did you drill into the cowling, or is the mount bolted to something else?

KC lights has a hood mount that uses the hood hinge bolts and may work for a 30" light depending on the brand.

1/8 steel bent at a couple of 90's and bolted to the hinge that holds the hood on
