My 50" inch curved led light bar by Totron. I just recently replaced it with a 54" curved light bar and better mounts. My previous mounts stood up like antlers and shook violently when going above 50mph





From my 50" curved bar. I dont' have a picture of my new light bar lighting up the night yet.

Default 54" Curved light bar with rough country mounts

Here is my new 54" curved light bar with Rough Country Mounts. These mounts are amazing!!! They are very sturdy and my light bar does not shake at all.







It really hugs my windshield and was how the curved light bar was designed to be mounted.

Default Setup for 54" curved light bar mounted to truck A-Frame above windshield

The instructions for the mounts were super easy. Here is my set up and what I used.

You just have to measure from the top of the windshield and place the mount on the truck and drill holes for the rivets. I used blue tap to mark my position. The holes to the left of the blue tape is from my last mounts, which used metal sheet screws. Terrible idea because few of them broke off from the high wind and off roading. This mount is rock solid from riveting it to the door frame.


Next I just riveted the mounts to the door frame. The instructions say you can use a pop riveter hand gun but I have a air riveter.




Here is a close up of the bar

Thanks!! They turned out way better than I imagined plus they get rid of any blind spots.
