Anybody mount a light bar on the roof for off road driving? Would like to learn tips on products, mounting, wiring. Would like it to be removable as well.
They are being stolen around here so that is a good solution to the problem.I was going to mount mine on a light bar on the front but was concerned about hitting something and tearing it up or someone ripping it off. I ended up installing it in the grill which solved both concerns.
I was limited to a 20" bar with this configuration but it works fine for my use. I thought about mounting a wider bar on the roof but I was afraid it would interfere with my kayak/bike racks, plus the aforementioned security issue.
The current draw on LED bars is surprisingly low. My 20" draws 10 amps. I'm guessing a 40" bar would be around twice that. I rewired all my aux power plugs for continuous power with 20 amp fuses but I probably wouldn't want to run that much current for an extended time.Thxs for the replies. Now that Yakima has come out w the 15 Landing Pads, i can use my round bars. Might consider a kit to mount a 40" led bar to that, but a temporary wiring harness still elludes me. Such a bar would draw too much to use a ciggie lighter plugin solution most likely. Idea is to mount the bar for those backroad weekend excusions. Most likely would have to remove if parked at a trailhead for a weekend etc..
Here's my setup. First off, roof mount is a good idea. Light dispersion and throw is optimal high up.Anybody mount a light bar on the roof for off road driving? Would like to learn tips on products, mounting, wiring. Would like it to be removable as well.
