Now onto the LYTESSS!!!!
I bought a 32" tough light for my Rola Rack during a group buy. For the money, I couldn't pass it up, and they made it custom to my needs. I did a combo light bar with floods on the outside and spots in the middle. 12,500 lumens of AWESOME! The quality has been great, and it has stood up to everything I've put it through. You can go to their website Tough-Light.com
and you will see my rig in their product photos!
I mounted it using 1.5" PIAA light mounts I bought off clearance from 4wheelparts.com for $20 bucks per pair. They were originally silver in color and I bed lined them black to match the Rola. You can get the same mounts but in black off eBay
for $20 + shipping.
I measured out where I wanted my light bar on the front and installed the mounts. I used red locktite on the bolts to make them harder to steal.
Next came the back up lights! I bought some display model rigid dually's with diffused licenses from a friend's 4x4 shop.
He gave me a deal I just couldn't pass up!!
I decided to test them out in the garage before installing
Once I knew they were working, I mounted them up on the Rola with the same PIAA mounts I used for the light bar.
Finding where I wanted to run the wiring was a bit tricky. I knew I wanted to keep it as hidden as possible, but didn't know how. I looked through some other people's build threads. But didn't come up with any good results at the time. So I started looking around and found that you can run the wiring down the top weather strip for the doors. It runs all the way from the tops of the doors down to the front of the doors near the engine compartment. You simply pull it off and hide the wires behind it in the channels available. I ran 2 sets of wires down the driver's side this way.
I started at the back and worked towards the front. I neatly ran the wiring harness for the rigid's and zip tied it to the Rola.
After that was done, I ran it down the side of the Rola and the roof rail to the weather stripping above the doors. I sealed all my wiring and connections with tape and split loom tubing to keep it sealed and hidden.
On the front light bar, I zip tied my wiring to the Rola and ran it over to the driver's side through the front hole in the roof rail above the drivers door. This spot kept it hidden, and I was able to zip tie it out of the way far enough not to be seen. You literally have to be looking for my wiring, or you will not see it!!
