Probably a roof mount / A pillar mount so that the lights can be mounted at roof level.

Got some mounted on roof and bumper. Very FFFing bright , intense like you driving down a white corridor , can see quite a distance at speed. I think combined they only pull around 20 amps . No wind noise either.

We can definitely help with that. We offer the 8-light kit from KC HiLiTES that includes the light bar and roof mount brackets.



You can view it on our site here: https://www.apollo-optics.com/collec...bar-raptor-kit

We can also set you up with a 9-light version of the Pro6 that will use custom A-Pillar mounts. If you're interested in that, we can help put that kit together for you as well!

I was asking how those mounts have been holding up? They look flimsy the way they're cantilevered over tv windshield. Do the lights bounce off and/or hit the windshield at all? How much do they vibrate while off road?

There's a support beam in the middle with a polyurethane bumper that gently rests against the windshield as a third support piece. There's no issues with the mounts or vibration thanks to the support beam.

I was leary on the mounts also , as they seem kinda flimsy. Once installed they are strong. I had to grind the edges of the bracket so they sit flush in the drain rails. First time i used nut-sert also , i bought the nu-sert tool before i attempted install. It is strong i put alot of force up and down on brackets shaking the whole truck up and down and side to side, and they didn't budge. When light is mounted and rubber center mount is down , i have it against the metal roof not the windsheild ,it is very strong and tight, I shook the hell out of it fully assembled and it does'nt budge. I have checked the screws also and they have never loosened up. Now If they would stay attached in a accident that may be iffy. I would think you would need a full custom mount welded on or pass through bolts through the roof to a plate on the underside. The six i have mounted on my ADD bumper i made myself because it orginally just had 4 mount tabs for 4 Seperat lights. They are very bright , even the reflection off a white concrete building or glass windows will blind the crap out of yourself. Funny story , i had pulled into my work parking lot and parked in line with front entrance doors, which is tinted glass, i had the windows down , a co worker walked by on passeger side and , talked some kind of smack i waited till he walked past in front of my truck and hit all the lights , the reflection back from the doors blinded the shit out of him and myself. if you were to use the on the road and oncoming traffic you would definatly cause an accident. insanely bright.
