There has to a place to mount one without adding a bull bar. I was almost thinking of the license plate mounts that I have seen on Renegades.

I replied to him on another thread, but here it is again:
I have 4 spot lights total; 2 on the hood, and 2 on the bumper.

So they make brackets for the renegade that will attach to the roof rails that will hold a light bar above the windshield and yes it will work for the compass as well.

Thanks! Sorry I don't, purchased it a few years ago. It was on an old jeep I had, removed it before it was sold.

So I'm wondering if you ran into electrical issues as far as the alternator goes after you installed these lights? What I'm wondering is if it would behoove me to upgrade the alternator to the higher output or if this is even an issue?
Thanks, Mike.
