Any possibility you could build something similar for the back for some pond boat hauling?

Sure, I made one to haul a jonboat for some one but it mounted to the rear bumper so he could still use his hardtop and it was detachable. I can even put rings on the corners to attach straps. Do you have stock bumpers?

A lot of people are asking about stainless and I can do it but it cost twice as much. I build a lot of custom designs for people, everything from autocad to hand drawings and I really enjoy making one of a kind pieces so if you have something in mind just shoot me your idea and i'll give you a price. It never hurts to ask.

It may be advantageous to be getting a vendor account before trying to sell anything.

I make two 6" 'recievers' out of 1 1/2 o.d. that mount to your bumper then the 1 1/4 bar sets in them and locks with pins. Then you can easily take it off. I got scolded (hehe) last time I tried to post pics but I'm working on it.

Not mine but I was gonna contact the guy for some of the other parts. I think he's kinda far from you, but i figured i'd throw it out there. Honestly those tabs look a bit flimsy to me, I went with the Olympic 4x4 maxi light bar:

With those big kc 69 series lights, it's a bit over the top, in more ways than one

The one I got obviously only has 4 spots, but I think I saw one with 5 on Craigslist before I decided to go with this bar, and by then it was sold. The tabs are a bit more beefy as they have 3 sides; horizontal on top where you bolt the light, and two vertical below for support, all welded to the bar. And you can rotate it down if needed for clearance in a parking garage or whatever. Though wiring it was a bit tricky. If you want I can see if I have any pics of when I installed it.
I'm thinking about getting this light bar but I have 2 KC lights mounted to the windshield hinges, do you think it will work?

It would help if I paid closer attention, wouldn't it? I doubt the OP is still looking for one. His post is almost 2 years old. I actually gave one away like the one he wanted. Built this one to replace it. Wanted low profile & very little amp draw.







How did you have yours wired? I'm trying to figure out how to wire my lightbar without drilling holes!
