Who has a LED bar on the roof?

I want to put a 40 inch bar on roof and having a hard time figuring out how. I've seen a few guys with custom fab'd light bars up there. Anyone willing to make one for me? I'm not really a fan of drilling into the roof and all that, but if someone knows what they are doing I would be willing to make a how-to when I do it. Have a good one!

The holes are under the tape, it's painted after tape is applied, they should be there. Pull up the modding and look about 10-12" back from the windshield.

This is my 36" bar, hindsight I wish I would have made the rack bigger to put a bigger light up top. But oh well, its still pretty damn bright.

also, there are two holes up front, you can see where they are on my rack because the bolts are exposed.

At the top right of your picture. Feel over that with your fingers and you will feel 2 indents. Poke them and you will see the holes

Those are the spot welds. The holes are under that sticker to the upper right. They have threaded inserts in there.

*sigh* I just noticed the Auburn stuff. I'll have to translate.

What it is that you gots is that you ain't uh lookin' in de right spurt. If'n you look a wee bit mo back you's git a good look see at that there sticker them put the paint on there when they made your truck. Jest run yours booger hook across and you'lls feel dem dare holes you be lookin fer.
