Would a pick-up truck type light bar work on a hard top? Too wide? Gutter not deep enough?
Good point. I had saw a truck bar for sale locally. Best price on a jeep windshield lightbar I've seen is around 100. Budget is tight these days.Yeah, but unlike a truck, your top is fiberglass. How will it hold up to the stress from the wind on your lights and bar? Isn't that why jeep ones are usually mounted to the windshield frame?
shippings not too bad gotta keep in mind there is boxes and packing involved plus a shipping charge from UPS or others.
true but ups and all the other shipping facilities have to deal with sizes of packages more smaller packages equal more money where as bigger packages equal less money made more trucks/trips needed.I respectfully must disagree here. Last year I shipped a set of D35 shafts, in a box I fabbed by UPS for 22.00. A good bit heavier than lightbar tubing. Since I'm not a company I wouldn't expect for someone to pay for my time, just the actual cost to ship to them.
Do I need to make new holes windshield pillars in order to attach the lightbar?Someone gave me a light bar, but I don't think it'll fit. I have a TJ and I think it's supposed to fit either a CJ or YJ since the bar does not extend down to the bolts on the lower sides of the windshield. It looks like it would bolt somewhere in the center of the sides of the windshield and there are no bolts there on the TJ.
Basically the side arms are shorter than they need to be.
Yea, it's similar to that. The side "arms" are short, so it has to be bolted higher up on the windshield pillars. I'm not sure that I want to drill new holes.I have seen a style that mounts like that. Is this it? This mounts to the frame close to the top. I think you do have to drill holes.
