50'' LED Light Bar Mount

Hey fellas,

Has anyone mounted Rigid Industries 50'' LED Light Bar E-Series on their windshield? If you click on the picture with the yellow YJ on this link you can see what I am talking about:

http://shop.poisonspyder.com/YJ-Fron...3-16-020-c.htm

And if I'm not mistaken, the mount that they used was this:

http://www.rigidindustries.com/produ...eepbracket.htm

But, it shows just for a TJ/JK. How did they do it?? I don't know if I feel like spending $1800 bucks for just a bracket. The light bar does come with two mounts that are on the side. So I suppoose I could measure, drill, and set a rivet bolt of some fashion. Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks all

Quite honestly I don't think any YJ owner has ever ponied up the $$ for one of those Rigid Light Bars. They're quite expensive, especially if you consider the number of inexpensive chinese light bars out there, like this one:

I like the idea, but that thing is beyond over priced I would much rather put that towards other upgrades. $1800.00 would put me really close to an Atlas II or a gen III V8 & 700r4 swap.

Yeah not to mention you can buy a KC Daylighter spotlight kit and a 55w HID kit for less than $200 total, and it would still put out more light.

That being said, I go crazy over LED's...

$1,859 just for the mount? HOLY COW BATMAN

I'm sure you could make it work and it's your money and all, but I can't see spending that kind of money for lights.

I dig LED's as well, just not to the tune of $1800.00, like you said $200.00 and you're covered. I put LED's for my interior 4-5 years ago tied into the stock dimmer and door pins, just have not got around to doing the dash lights. Shoot 2006 I slapped on $80 worth of Walmart lights, and the Pro Comps that were free, maybe $30 in relay switch kits and now have windshield, bumper, rock lights. I won't upgrade or replace until something breaks.

i spend an obscene amount of money on lights for work (motion picture). the last LED was a 12"x12" at $2700.00 and although i spend a lot, i just couldnt get myself to pay those prices for a light on a jeep even though its not that expensive compared to what i spend on other lights. i cant imagine many pay full price for those.

-insert meaningless out-of-place political diatribe-

I know the Rigid lights work, there are LOTS of desert racers using them right now (hell, one of them won with about $5000 worth of rigid lights), but they're just too pricey for us common folk...

So $1,199 for the light and $1,859... $3,000 for a light bar bracket. Not a chance in hell for me.

That light bar bracket is asinine. 3 pieces of bent/cut sheet metal is worth about $50 in materials and $150 in processing.

the bracket from rigid is 289.99 i think you can get almost the same one for like 179 at 4wd.com. i was thinking about getting that bracket and fabbing up a crossmember and putting hids up there i like the way it fits to the windshield unlike most light bars that stick out from the frame., i think those are ugly. these brackets will also proteect the frame from damage.
