I can’t see any of these photos...but I was wondering if anyone has mounted any led light bars on the roof of their bronco?

I just found 4 KC Daylighter spot lights on Facebook Marketplace and bought a Carr M-Profile Light bar (p/n 210703) to mount them too. Looks like they make one for mounting an LED Light Bar too.


I should have it mounted in a few weeks and can post pictures.

So I was able to get the Lights assembled on the Light Bar, mounted the Light Bar, and ran all of the wiring these past few days.

Contents of Carr Light Bar Box. Nothing to crazy with assembling. Definitely RTFM before you start.

Mounted the Light Bar to figure out the clearance.

Welcome 1978!!1! 🤣😎

Love the retro look.


But that'll definitely shave a couple MPG off your mileage, though. YMMV

Where did you end up running the wires? Did you have to cut a hole in your roof? Door jam?

I drilled thru the roof right under the arm of the Light Bar. My Bronco doesn't have the headliner or a lot of other interior trim pieces so I ran it thru the roof, down the A pillar and then thru the firewall near the existing wiring thru hole. I do have the A pillar trim piece so I hid the wire behind that.

10-4(y) I’m struggling to come up with a way to mount an LED light bar that I’m comfortable with. I may use the door gutters...but I may use the roll bar...or I may use a mag mount for temporary use...what I didn’t want to do was drill any holes in the roof...(sigh) decisions decisions

On my ol 94, there was a black rubber plug near the rear roofline. Same with my 85, though it came to me with the light bar installed.

I sold that dick cepek bar to @Oscar but kept the KCs. They are in a box waiting for a proper project.

I used to run a Carr rota-bar in about 2005 on my 94. I ran 5 ProComp 130w 6" lights on it, the middle one facing backwards.




I too am trying to find a way to mount a dual row 52" led bar. I have a couple ideas, but havent ironed out the specifics.

My hope is to integrate it under a cab visor that I'm going to put on. Most likely have to be mounted to the A-pillar with a fancy hand built triangulated bracket.

My other thought was the same, minus the cab visor.

Or coming straight out the front, off the drip rails.

It has to be tucked in close or I wont put it on. I hate the led bars that stick way out.

I do have two 6" LEDs tucked in my 85's grille...

Yeah I’ve seen some options and I will most likely get a Stealth Bar that mounts to the gutters and mount the LED bar to it...I’m still kicking around the mag mount idea just because I may not need lights most of the time as I will probably not wheel the mud in the dark to often and be able to keep them cleaner longer...I do like the round light look you had...I like that you can customize the angle your light is directed at also(y)

I have almost the same set up that @BigBlue94 ran, I don't recall the brand of bar but got it from a member on here, mounted up 5 KC's but I faced my two outside ones to the rear. I'll be upgrading soonish (after my 460 swap) and I'm not sure what I'll run. I drilled through my top then ran down my b-pillar...
