ZJ roof light? yes or no

I have these sitting around off my rhino. Should I fab up some brackets or leave them on the shelf?

I'm a little iffy on whether or not the trees I play in will destroy them, but then again wrecked is better than never used sitting on a shelf

not even close, lol I put them on kind of as a joke, but now kind of like them. I used to have a ws6 trans am that looked like this when sitting in it. IDK it is a little funner to drive this way, Gay, I know, but fun.

Ask yourself this question: How much further down the trail will they get you? The answer then becomes obvious.

true, but sometimes some of us think stuff looks cool. especially since he already has the lights. Its not like he's spending any more money on them.

Maybe attach them to the old cross members of your stock roof rack. Put 2 up front and 2 in the back. It's always nice to have lighting on the back of your Jeep when backing.

I welded up the brackets today. I kind of like it, I made the mounts so all I have to do is undo 2 hitch clips and fold it down, or 2 hitch clips and 2 bolts to take it off
