If you don't want to punch through the roof, or go out the door...

Go through the roof to the dome light, then punch through the integral roll bar to the U-nut for the center camper bolt. Go out the square hole into the channel & down either side. Then make a U-turn (so water drips off there) and back up & out between the fiberglass & steel to a quick connector for the light bar. If you ever unplug & remove the bar, just shove the wire back through the U-nut hole so the connector is hidden in the channel.

why the hell does everyone feel the need to quote every damn pic in a post to ask a single question? :rolleyes:
1 pic will do, or even just the posters name/handle would be fine and save us all the repetition of pics and making the thread 3 times longer.

have some consideration for your fellow users and future readers.

Pepe, I'd assume it's because most don't know that you can omit anything from a quote post that you want. Similar to the way one can change the "title" of a link to a web address. I agree, it gets old waiting for pics to load that I've already seen three posts ago. I'd assume some are not very fluent in how a BBS operates. It's like getting a child to understand the hexadecimal programming language. It's just too complex for some people to grasp.

Does everyone mount light bars on the roof? I did once and got too much glare in the windshield. Bumper mount throws the light where one needs it without glare coming in

The high roof location throws the insane amount of light from a 50-52" lightbar better than a lower bumper mount. Take a look at my photos on first page of this thread -- no windshield glare with the cap, and barely any light on the hood, just a couple of inches at the very front.

Anyone mounted a big light bar inside the truck light the lights on most newer cop cars?

I'm planning on doing this at some point and just wondering if anyone else did it and has pics so I can just copy them :goodfinge

That would be a lot of reflected light plus it would probably distort the pattern passing thru the glass. Emergency lights are different optics than the type used in light bars.

"light the lights on most newer cop cars" meant "with a sheet-metal housing to prevent glare"

I don't think the pattern would distort very much but even if it did I think it's a worthwhile trade-off for being able to run a cheap light bar without exposing it to the elements (they aren't known for being super durable) and never taking it out with a branch.
