Wj A-Pillar/Ditch Light Bracket Mount Options

Hoping someone can shine some light, (pun intended) on how they mounted ditch lights on their WJ. As far as I can tell from endless Google and forum searches, most of the brackets that used to exist for the WJ are no longer sold. While I know there's some cheapo universal options that just clamp onto the hood, I don't really trust those to not wobble around or fall off on/offroad. Any recommendations/guidance is welcome!

Yes, I wondered that. I also wondered about the light those 2 LEDs produced.

However, the idea of hanging a light off the external mirror seemed worth investigating.

The light claim 4000 Lumens.

Looks like some Baja Designs pods so probably have some solid output as you mentioned. I wonder if the beam gets cut off as well from the hood. Might dissect my old non-heated mirrors and check it out to see if anything would fit.

You could attach some rock lights for flood lighting ... would not be flush mount but they would be on. Not sure how much light you are looking for, these claim 3240 lumen.

I hung a camera under my mirror. Had to drill a hole to run the wire but you can make it work, you can get power in there.

Turns out the camera is not so useful.
