You can't even have it covered? I know in the USA, the Jeep Liberty Renegade came with a nice light bar (that some adapted to their XJs, successfully I believe). The height of the light bar caused it to be illegal to own in West Virginia. Not sure I remember correctly, but I want to say Jeep dropped the light bar on the next model year. I believe it wasn't standard on the Renegade package, and optional afterwards. Been a while since I read about that, so I might be wrong on the specifics.

These lights are going to be so much brighter than what the Libby came with; I could see getting harassed by law enforcement in other states if they aren't covered.

Even if I buy 20 lights its probably still worth it lol.
There are some Hanma items on Amazon.

Got mine in yesterday, I couldn't be happier with the quality. I haven't mounted them yet, but I'll post once I get everything together.

Those lightbars were the only thing I really liked about the Liberty and one of the coolest factory accessories Jeep has had in years.

We have to have any lights above the headlights covered here but they don't really hassle you about it unless you're using them on the road and even then they only do it if they think you're using them to spot deer for hunting.

I don't think their prices justify them yet, my H1 off road lights still do plenty well enough for me when I need them. I just can't see justifying $300+ 50" light. I definitely like em, just can't see buying them myself til they come down in price some.

Though I would kinda like them on the side of a roof rack if I had one for side lighting. The backroads here get TONS of deer on them and they tend to just chill on the side of the road at night for no apparent reason. It's not unusual to see 20+ of them just standing there 6" off the road.

The deer here are dumb as hell too. My uncle bought a brand new GMC 2500 pickup in NH then drove it down here immediately when he moved that night. A mile from the new house he saw a deer running towards the road and stopped completely. Deer kept charging another 20 yards, ran straight into his drivers side front door and broke its neck and killed itself and completely wrecked the door lol

These are the Motobilt lightbar brackets. They are the best design out there, and are made using Hanma specs.

What is that TJ doing in our neck of the woods? Are those 4x4 lights on the A pillars?

Haha. More TJs in here than you think!

That is a Hanma 50", 2x2, and I have a 13" that goes above my winch.

I have seen a lot of bad reviews of that site. Probably just depends on the seller, but I don't think I would order from there.
