Nope the Superduty one is what you'd use. I don't know how sturdy these would be, after all the screws go into a plastic "nut".

I think $150 is a little steep, but if it was 50-75 bucks there'd be one on it's way to my door.

I saw that in the catalog last week, pretty neat idea. You would need the Superduty one and I don't know how well it would match up with the roof or anything but it will bolt-on.

looks like Mickey Mouse ears.....

For the price of that you can get a CARR light bar (identical to the KC light bar) and have 4-5 lights.

It's alright, but I'd rather have a full light bar like the KC or Carr bar.
