    Do any companies still make light bar mounts for the OEM roof racks? I know rough country used to make one but they’ve since taken it off their website. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I’ll take some pics for you, yeah you just use 3 (I think) rivets per side into your oem roof rack.

    Thanks so much! How did you run your wires? Last time I wired up my own lights it took me like 8 hours and that was just the two Hellas on my bull bar :rofl:

    Haha. I ran the wire from the lightbar down where the windshield meets the body and used small dabs of silicone, press it it against the windshield, and used blue painters tape to hold it overnight. The silicone can be separated from the windshield pretty easily if needed. I think I followed someone’s write up on here or YouTube to get some ideas.

    Did you ever take those pictures? I completely forgot about this until a 4Runner came into my shop with a light bar. Reminded me of the brackets I ordered that are sitting in my garage waiting to be riveted to my roof rack :rofl:
