Delta SkyBar was specifically designed for Jeep Wrangler TJ and JK. It is constructed of machined Billet Aluminum mounting arms and spacers and plasma cut 13 ga. Steel cross bar holding a battery of 6 (ea) xenon driving lights. The intergrated design of the SkyBar complements the roof-line and the unique lines on Jeep Wrangler. It is designed to allow garage clearance with any lifts. The bar does not interfere with any roof, soft or hard top. The light bar is wired to allow 3 phases of operation 2, 4 and all 6 lights. The light bar offers a precision vertical aiming adjustment. The mounting billet arms attach to the side by the windshield to existing bolt holes thus requiring NO DRILLING. The SkyBar comes complete pre-wired with an OEM double harness, two switches, relays, fuses and all necessary hardware.
The set contains:
• One (ea) steel cross bar
• 6 (ea) xenon 4½” driving lights
• 6 (ea) hard plastic covers
• 2 (ea) billet aluminum mounting arms
• 2 (ea) billet aluminum spacers (for JK only)
• 4 (ea) mounting bolts
• 2 (ea) wiring harnesses
• 2 (ea) toggle illuminated switches
• 2 (ea) relays and fuses
Pros: Very bright and easy to fix burned out bulbs. Looks sharp. Low-profile
Cons: Very expensive for a light bar.
Comments: Easy to install and comes pre wired. Extremely bright and low profile. Adds no extra inches to the jeep.
Pros: easy to install, bright lighting
Cons: kind of distracting for the driver at night.
Comments: It's not the Delta Skybar, but it is a Delta product. It is three fog lights in a bar across the hood. Hyper-white bulbs are blinding even in the daytime.

Pros: Low profile styling (allows me to fit in my parking garage at work). Looks really nice.
Cons: Not very bright. Reflects off hood. Drilling IS required. Cheap toggle switches. Poor customer service
Comments: I looked at and admired this light bar for some time before I bought it, but was never able to find any reviews for it.
I purchased this lightbar about two years ago (spring 07) and mounted it on my 2006 LJ (Unlimited).
Contrary to the description, drilling IS required. One hole through the firewall and a second hole through the top of the passenger side "A" post. The hole in the firewall is necessary to run the wires from the battery and relay to the toggle switches inside the cab. The second hole is necessary to run the other set of wires from the top of the light bar down to the toggle switches. Only 1 rubber pass through was provided with the wiring.
The first time I powered them on I was disappointed. For $800.00, I expected to turn my dark back yard into a sunny day. Secondly, there is a horrible glare reflecting off the hood. Made several attempts at adjusting them, but wound up wrapping black tape around the outsides of each of the 6 lenses to cure the problem.
One of the toggle switches stopped working after a year. Emailed and called Delta for troubleshooting of the lack of light intensity (do I need a larger battery (Optima red top), or a stronger alternator (stock). After several unanswered emails and phone messages, I was finally able to speak to someone who identified himself as the operations manager. But he could not answer my questions about the intensity issue, and blew me off about the toggle switch. Took my name and number and I never heard back from them.
I do have the Delta quad bar headlights (which was why I opted for their light bar) and they ROCK!!! But as for the light bar....save your money.
Update: Dec 27, 09; Two of the lights have stopped working!
