Any Hella 4000's on windshield mounts?

Hey everybody,

I think the title just about sums it up. I have a set of Hella 4000's off my old WJ sitting in the garage that I was planning on mounting on the Rubi. As most of your know they are pretty large lamps, has anybody mounted these on their windshield brackets?

You are right they are very large and heavy (6 lbs. each) too. I think that if you can get them to fit that they would look so out of place and look like tumors protruding from the face checks of your Jeep.

Haha I thought they might but I have them laying around and figured I would try and put them to use. I guess nobody has them on for a reason

Yeah it’s a shame though because those 4000’s are really built well; had 4 of them on my ’04 Rubi. Shouldn’t have a problem selling them if you have no use for them in the future.

Yeah, if they look goofy I will end up bolting them to my CJ's bumper.

I don't mean to thread jack!

Has anyone wired 4000's to their factory switch? Hella says it needs a "required" harness (sold separately). I have factory switch and plugs (no factory lights) and an aftermarket switch and aftermarket lights from the po. They're halogen so I don't see the need for a "required" harness. Thanks!

To run the 4000s you need to wire them up yourself. It’s best to run them separate from the factory electrical on the JKs and get your power source directly from the battery. You will need a switch, relay and of course wiring.

Best to use 12guage for the power and small (16-18) gauge wire for triggering the relay. Also just as important as the power is the grounding of the lights. Make sure it’s solid and clean plus use at least a 14 -12 gauge wire.

So to answer your question the answer is yes. You can either buy their “required” harness or make up your own.

I like the look of big lights on the bumper, like mounted on the stinger or something.. Windshield mounts are a bit out of place I'd say
