Similar to a police spot light? Never seen one on an xj, but it would be pretty cool..

Can you link us to them? I would be interested in them too (if they don't damage the heep to mount them)

Might be useful for fabbing cb antenna mounts also

'98 xj: 3.5" RE, 31's, nates front bumper, etc etc...

'90 xj: Wrecked, waiting for the day it can become a full blown trail rig.

'00 wj SOLD (still in family)

How about mounting them onto the front of the mirrors? That way you don't have to drill the body and they won't affect aerodynamics much. Or cut the mirror housings and put some small lights inside!

My dad's police Jeep (97 XJ) had a dealer-installed Unity 4" spotlamp. You can order the kit from a Unity distributor.

Ok grabbed some XJ police pics off the net-

Someone make these click-free.





Like I said, Unity should be able to stock this configuration still. It comes with instructions on how to do the install, and in all actuality if you have an inkling of mechanical skill it's not hard at all. You can get both left and right spotlights too.
