Not that I am an expert in any sense here.

But I have those mounts and they were pretty easy to install and running the wires was pretty simple.

Good luck.

I love this.

Browse through eBay, I found a complete set up, loop and lights for a good price.
Have not pulled the trigger yet.

Those are nice! As far as the lights, where the heck do you splice them into Jeep? I really like that "look" but worry I'll do more harm than good trying to get them to work!

My apologies, the off camber. I do like the WARNs as well, but I like the bar!

I ran mine through the light bar. I have the rugged ride one, I don't use it anymore. Nothing is wrong with it by no means Its already drilled (under the tabs to put the wiring through) if you want it I can find a box maybe. 50+ shipping?

Also if you plan to add anymore lights and etc. Check out my link in my sig.

Do not splice into the JK's wiring, use the harness that comes with a quality kit, very easy and you'll avoid many problems.

Alot of the harness aren't that great by any standards that's why I started to make harnesses to make wiring easier and safe. Also I make a verson for JK owners that want to use stock switches to turn on their lights. Like using the fog light switch to turn on the fog lights AND extra set of lights

I agree, most aux. lighting harnesses are bottom dwellers. They are better than splicing into the JK's harness though..

I have made my own harnesses also, and I always go "overkill". It's good to hear someone else that understands...
