How did you guys mount your light bars?

I just bought a 42" led light bar off of Amazon wondering if there are any good ways to mount them. Drilling into the roof is last resort. I do work at a steel shop so I have access to steel but I'm not a very good fabricator.

Thanks!!!

Mount it to one of your roof rack cross bars.
