I got new KC lights for Christmas and I want to mount them on the windshield of my 2011 Rubicon, but everywhere I look I keep finding the brackets that work on the years up to 2010. Ive owned my jeep for a week and a day and this is the first thing I've done to it. Will the mounts for the 2010 work on a 2011?

They should work as the outside is still the same.

It's still not a great place to mount lights though...
I mean, they look cool there and all. They just don't shine on the road worth a dang.

Not to mention that it causes insane amounts of glare on your side windows, o have to roll my windows down to use them at night.

:cool: Yo HD, they have tapered bases for full adjustment, but

They are only intended for OFF-ROAD anyway !!

My fogs/driving lights and KC lights, light up the forest, both sides when I use ALLOFEM-off-road and I can't use the KCs on road anywho!!

:rofl::rofl: JIMBO

WOW, NC mine don't cause any glare !, maybe the jeep color or your light exposure adjustment !

Its probably because i have hella 550s and they dont have anything to block the light.

I learned my lesson. Windshield mounts also suck when it comes to bugs. You're out wheeling and every mosquito is swarming around those damn things. Nah, I'll keep 'em down on the bumper.

With the glare, try to angle for long range use on a post of the vehicle and if you have a set on your bumper use them for driving, look like a stadium coming down the road,

Hey Jimbo I though you couldnt have your KCs on on the road ^ ;)

It doesnt matter much where I live because 99% of roads are back roads, and I havent seen a cop within 10 miles in the 13 years Ive lived here.

Anyways, the Kc daylights definitely light up whatever you need, but if you want something for road use, dont get these. Unless you dont mind paying for it ;)

I got me a set of 130 watt daylighters and a set of 100 watt daylighters for my TJ (I know wrong forum). I thought I could use the 100 watts for fog lights on the road. There is no way I could do that, they are way to bright. KC offers 100 watt fog lights. If I get those to use as fogs will they be to bright for street use or does the fog pattern make them legal???

:cool: I don't know about your "fog" lights strength and your driving lights --

Most states regulate their vehicle lighting based on Auto Standard issue and any aftermkt lights we put on, have to be a measured distance BELOW the headlights, so you'll have to check with your DMV-

My NorNv, Desert county (LYON county) is very lenient on most lighting/exhaust restrictions !!

Good luck-
