mounting 42" light bar

Has anyone ever used the gutter less mount?

This looks like the best option but want to see if it works before ordering.

The only thing I can say to consider is how far back it might have to sit.

Im.not overly concerned there. If it's not on that it's on my roof rack which is even further back. I just want to know if that system would work.

You might have to be the test subject on this one. I can't say I've seen anyone post up that they are using this and I consider myself pretty plugged into the mod seen. If you do get it maybe do a review on it and take some pictures. I can help share it across multiple platforms maybe help others out that are searching for a different way of mounting light bars. Are you on the face book groups or other forums? If not and have time to wait I can post the question in a few spots and see what pops up.

Yeah definitely check and see if you can find anything. It looks like you have to buy the gutter less mount and drill inside the top of the door on the body to mount the brackets. That's why I'm trying to find out. If it's too.much I'll just mount it to my roof rack. Just makes it a permanent. Which I would like to avoid.

I had lights on my basket and took it off all the time. I wired the basket to a central point and made a quick disconnect so I could take my basket off anytime I wanted.

That's a good idea. Oh and that Carr mount is crap. Only rated to hold 4 pounds.

Nice. I think I'm going to mount it between the bars on my roof rack and have a quick disconnect for the lights.

I had this bar on my 98 XJ. The bar sat too far back on the roof, couldn't really go much further forward on the gutters on the XJ. If I had to do it again, I would have mounted the lights on the front bumper. Not sure about mounting it on an XK since it does not have external gutters.
