Anyone have any advice on how to mount a 30" bar on an EB behind a C-Clamp grille? I want it to be on the lower part of the grille.

A 30" should fit perfectly between the grill supports.

It will fit, yes. But I want to know how to best attach it. The supports appear too narrow at the bottom to drill through and be able to attach the bar to.

They shouldn't be, I can provide with some detailed measurements on how much clearance you will need. By all accounts, drilling a hole in each side and passing the bolts through that hole should do it.

[MENTION=180865]Laxman09[/MENTION] You're looking at a required 31.5inches from end to end required to fit an E Series bar, and 31.675inches to fit an SR Series Bar. Those sections are narrow as I'm sure you've noticed, you will just need to get creative with the hardware. The bolts themselves are fairly narrow too, but some nuts and heavy duty washers will be your best friends.

Does anyone know how I can mount a 50" on the roof? I have find brackets from like N-Fab but there $160, and I'm not spending that for bent metal.

Putco has very cheap (somewhat flimsy) mounts for their curved bars, might work.
