Lol. You really should have done a little research to see how else to mount it.. especially after we posted how not to mount it to your bumper.. and the roof is an even worse decision. Smh.. oh well man.. what's done is done. As long as you like it and it works I guess.

Lol yeah. I honestly don't care since its not my vehicle, but its a pet peeve of mine when someone takes a shortcut to install something incorrectly. If it works cool, but I wouldn't be caught dead doing that

Will do. From what I've read it's a great bar for the money but the lens gets some condensation behind it. I'll reseal it if I have the same problem.

Yeah that would be a good idea. No point in waiting for moisture to get in there when it's a know problem with those bars. Better safe than sorry.

While you're up there with the OHC.. you might pull down the headliner and maybe put some washers up there where you drilled through so that light doesn't tear through the sheet metal. I agree on the mud flaps.. they aren't doing anything now that you have tires that stick out that far. And you have one big D



ring.
