Need ideas, could buy 4 square lights but I don't like the way they look and I can't figure out a way to put hinges on it to tilt them back.
yea please don't do square ones. haha

I don't think my idea of some pins and sliding it down would work with the rollbar, it can't be too hard to make a pivot.

yeah that would work and everything but it would not be fun to air up and down everytime I want to get out of the garage haha.

I know the factory hummer lights can fold back but I can't find any good pics of how it works or a place I could maybe find some of the mounts.

Other than the hummer lights I don't know of or couldn't find any type of light bar or light mount that is can fold down

What you need is some pipe clamps to go around your rollbar. That way you can swing it all the way down to where they'd be facing backwards behind your back window.

lol, you wear flip flops, so it kinda doesn't count there, and besides, we all had our shoes off by then, so we didn't track dirt onto the carpet.


And I am a light sleeper!

I was thinking something like that, but couldn't find what I was looking for last night.

Where is that from?

But looking at it, I don't think that would work because if I clamped it down on the rollbar there would be no way to tighten the light down enough so it couldn't move.

That's just a pic I got off the internet. We have a couple different kinds here at work, that's why I thought of it. I'm sure they'd have some in the plumbing dept at Lowes or where ever.

You could put a light bar across the top of the pipe clamps, tighten the lights to that, and then just loosen the pipe clamps when you want to hinge it.

they ride really good, I got 800#'s since I have probably 200 lbs up front in my bumper and skid plate, so I wouldn't get these on a stock bumper setup. But it is perfect for mine.

Matt they didn't settle anymore, I'm sitting at 43.5" up front and 43" in back (ground to top of wheel well)
