    I've been working on a idea to hide/protect, my expensive light bar, for the last few years.. Baja Racks liked it, set up production, just launched it on Facebook . It's available for purchase and will bet fit on all utility racks. It was modeled off the FJ Rack , but, it will be be designed in with other Baja Racks too. It's a little exciting to see something I invented on the market :)

    Absolutely .
    I have it ran to a double pole, double throw momentary switch. It may pull a few amps while it's going up and down, but that's it.

    I probably should post a few pics of the install on my truck, along with the details on how all the wiring was ran

    This was the first round of lights mounted and wired
    (6) Baja Designs S2's for the around the rack lighting
    (1) Baja Designs Stealth bar with amber lenses (I also got the clear lenses too)
    [​IMG]

    Install of stealth bar
    [​IMG]

    Now for the roof
    I used this bulkhead connector to run all of my roof wiring. Its a solid piece of rubber that you drill the wire hole through then the cover compresses around the wire for a water tight seal
    [​IMG]

    Lights are mounted 2-2-2 both sides and rear
    This was one of the front mounts
    [​IMG]

    I added 2 Baja Design Squadrons for the bumpers
    [​IMG]


    Here is the S-Pod that has 6 relays all fused and protected for LED lights
    All of this is plug-n-play. You just need to get all the wire runs to this location ( a little easier said than done) :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    This is the Dirty Parts Switch panel, you can integrate with the S-Pod
    All circuits are used
    40" Baja Designs Stealth bar on the Spylight System
    20" Baja Designs Stealth bar (Amber) on the front bumper
    Baja Designs Squadrons in the bumper
    2 S2's on the left side of the rack
    2 on the right side
    2 on the rack, facing the rear
    [​IMG]

    The Spylight switch is mounted next to the switch panel on the dash

    I need to find a few more pictures of them all lit up

    Has your roof bulkhead proved to be a watertight connection ?

    That seems pretty sweet

    Here are a few near daylight n Ouray Colorado
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I put amber lenses on the rear lights. I have got nothing but great comments from followers on dusty trail. They love the fact that they can see the lights, through heavy dust

    Oh by the way I do have a new 2013 Trail Teams FJ now :)

    This bulkhead is used in the boating industry for high end applications. It rained every day in Ouray. No runs, drips, or errors. it was about 40-50 bucks, just for the bulkhead connector
    I am also working on a pre wire system to eliminate severe wiring when doing a total roof rack lighting scenario . I was actually able to remove my roof rack in about 15 minutes then I was able to re install another one with the lights all working in maybe 45 minutes .
