KC lights and sun roof!

One of the modifications i have lined up is some KC lights for my roof rack on my Jeep Grand cherokee.
I dremiled out the stops so i could move the rack all the way forward but when i did this the sound was NUTS with the sunroof open... so... i moved it back. my question is if i put some KC lights on the rack will the noise be insane? anyone done this before?

thank you! that was right after i had it detailed, i have put kc daylighters on my brush guard since that picture. the wiring i didnt really want to drill a hole on my roof so i unbolted the front parts of the rails and slid them under there and there are plastic covers going to the windshield to go under as well then i ran them underneath the windshield trim. i got them at pep boys i think they were $20/pr 55w. they have a wide spread beam doesnt light up to far but you can see everything around you, and cant complain really for that price haha i got 4 for $40 so im happy

here are mine on my zj.... they are directly over the sunroof and get pretty annoying with the sunroof open...i will move them forward soon to see how they are, as they sit right now, with them on riding a trail, i must close the sunroof because it somewhat shines into the jeep blinding me....
