Light Bar Options (Compass)

I really love the Liberty Renegade 4-light Bar. It's molded plastic and looks clean. I approached my local Jeep Parts Counter and they did a little research for me. Sadly, the rooflines are too different for anything but a total custom installation. With it being over $400, I'm not sure I want to try a custom install...

Not to be discouraged, I have found the following option:

Mopar part #s and description follow.

#82209125
Roof Basket Carrier, Mounts to production side rails; includes air deflector and logo.
$339.00

#82210247
Complete wiring kit for installing up to 4 Off- Road Lights to the Mopar Accessory Roof Basket.
$159.00

#82209812
Mounting Brackets for adding a pair of Off-Road Lights to Roof Basket
$79.00

#82208488AB
Set of 2 rectangular Lamps with Black plastic housing, 55-watt, 90,000 candle power, with Hella/Mopar logo covers
$129.00

Should look something like this totally assembled:



Of course there are cost saving options, like subtraciting the install kit and mounting brackets and perhaps using no-name or cheaper lights.

Think I'm going to go for the basket and see what develops!

The eBay link still works too for some other views.

glad someone else liked my suggestion.

I was half daydreaming earlier (keep in mind its 3:30 am and i cant sleep because of pain) and was thinking about what i'd do for my patriot when i get it.

I think what i ended up deciding on in my dreams was two pair of hella optilux 2550 lights on the forward sport bar, possibly even bolted to the underside of the bar so i dont lose the functionalty of the rack as i need it.


plus i think 4 oval lights with angel eyes would look awesome at night (light beam off, but with the halos on)
