Light Bar

Looking to put a 4 light, light bar on the top of the ZJ. I would like to use the stock roof rail.
Anyone know who sales something like this? OR am I going about this wrong?

That's my plan. I mount 2 facing forward and 2 facing backwards. I just slid the rails, one forward and one backward all the way. I am gonna get 2 more from the junkyard and use them to haul my spare and hi-lift jack.
If you look at my topic about makin a snorkel you can see the lights.

Or make a crossbar with superstructure bar from home depot.
bar, plates and inserts run me about $25.00 for just the light bar.

Yeah I made one from home depot parts. Very strong, very ugly. Gas mileage dropped with the 4 spot lights on top and the looks I was getting were more on the down side of things haha.

Here's the KOR light bar in action



Mounted up without lights.



Very solid, no vibration of the lights. I've even used it as a tie-down point. Not as cheap as Speedy's, but just as strong, if not stronger.
