Reverse lights... Mocked up & locked up,

Well I thought I would share what I have done so far today. I wanted to hook up my VisionX 8" (60 deg) lightbar to my Rugged Ridge license plate relocation bracket, but I was afraid the lightbar would get stolen. The only thing that was holding this thing on was a little pin.





I drilled the hole out to 1/4" and added a masterlock keyed hitch lock.









I had to fab up a bracket to adapt the light bar to the mounting bolt, which required a longer bolt than what came from Rugged Ridge. But other than that this was a pretty straightforward install.



I realize this isnt theft proof, but now there has to be a little effort put into stealing it! Now I just have to wire this thing up so I can start blinding those pesky tailgaters! It's a friggin jeep guys... Not a sports car!

Nice mod and all but it does seem to be a bit vulnerable in certain situations. For example, dropping off a ledge and ripping it off; that would be my luck anyhow.

Thanks. It comes off just as easily as a trailer hitch, so it will be removed if there is any danger of it getting ripped off.

Just finished wiring up the distribution block, and three switches. Only one switch is active to run the reverse lights. The other two are gonna be for the left & right light bars. And yes one of the holes i drilled for the switches doesn't line up with the other two. The distribution block was used so I only have to run one wire from the engine bay. It's gonna end up being used as a jumper to an amp as well as run all my switches and other accessories.
