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?

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.

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
