Light bar review and thoughts

Installed a 52" light bar. Here's my review video.

Do you have an over the windshield light bar? Thoughts or issues with it?
Some get lots of wind noise. Curious what you've done to resolve any issues.
Thanks!

The video is of a guy doing dash lights. I would be concerned about it lighting up the hood.


I like my lights on the bumper but they are more subject to damage.

Yeah, I had the same concern with the light bar mounted above the windshield. But honestly, it turned out just fine. No glare off the hood at all. Don't notice any reflection at all.

I had a 22" 120w LED light bar mounted to the HiLift mount on my hood and the glare would light up the inside of my YJ! I've recently located to the top of the front hitch. I don't know if I'll ever have the need or install one of those ginormous light bars over the windshield but this is good info in case I ever do. I am adding the same 22" LED light bar to the back of my hardtop for camp lighting. These two light bars should be ample illumination for my needs.

Hey, great pictures. Thx! I can imagine getting a lot of glare off the hood mounting the bar where the Hi Lift is. With this one, as you can see in my video https://youtu.be/Z3E1BEyEFOc I didn't get any glare off the hood at all. Maybe it was due to the dark color of the jeep, or how bright it lit up the terrain and I just didn't notice Anyway, it worked out well. Thanks again for the pics!
