Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Barricade Light Bar fitting all 1997-2006 TJ's. These days when you hear the term light bar you might think of LED light bar, and that's what you see on a lot of newer JK's and even a lot of TJ's these days. But this is the original light bar. A bar that will hold any light you want above the windshield. And the benefit to a bar like this is it has four separate mounting locations for four individual lights, so you can have different theme patterns, you can have those lights aimed in different directions, and you can have them switched independently if you want to. I really like this bar over some of the other ones on the market because of some of the little details that it has, even if it a little bit more expensive than some of the cheap ones. This light bar is made of 2-inch tubular stainless steel that's covered in a textured black powder coat finish. A lot of other after market parts share the same textured black powder coat finish, so it should blend in and look really good no matter what color your Jeep is. A couple of features that I like about this bar over some of the less expensive ones on the market are the way that it mounts to the Jeep. A lot of these are designed to be completely bolt on and this one is no different. However, some of them just have a little bit of a tab where you'll bolt through that tab into the windshield hinge. These have much more of a substantial mount that I personally think looks better and will also work better. This bar also has a wind deflector built right into it, which will help decrease any noise that you might otherwise get from wind whistling between the windshield and the light bar. And this bar is also drilled in six different locations for wiring. It has one hole at everyone of the mounts, and one hole down on either of the arms to help you get the wiring both in and back out again. As I mentioned, this bar, like most others on the market, is designed to be completely bolt on and actually uses a lot of the factory hardware to attach to the Jeep. So the installation process is pretty simple. All you need to do is remove the three bolts from the windshield hinge and install the first mounting bracket. From there you can install the mounting bracket on the other side, and then the cross bar with its hardware. It'll help to leave all of the hardware loose until every piece is in place, then you can torque everything down. From there it's just a matter of attaching whatever lights you want and this will accept any light that's designed to mount to on any traditional single post mount. You will want to check the length of that posts to make sure it doesn't go through the bracket and make contact with the top the windshield which can damage the paint. From there you just have to wire it, but again, that's a pretty easy process because of the predrilled holes. You will have to figure out how to get from the bottom of the light bar into the engine bay for power and into the cab for switching, but the whole process is pretty straight forward. To get the bar installed on it's own shouldn't take you more than two hours, and wiring, depending on the lights that you have and your experience with automotive wiring, can vary as far as time goes. You won't need any specialty tools to get this installed, however, a good set of torque spits will definitely help. As I mentioned, this bar might be a little more expensive that some of the other light bars on the market, but in my opinion, it's worth it. This bar has some nicer brackets than some other ones do with countersunk bolt holes. It has adhesive foam already installed to keep the bar from chafing your factory paint. It has this wind deflector built into it to cut down on wind noise and give the bar a little bit more of a finished look. And finally, it's predrilled not only up top but also at the bottom to aid in wiring. In my opinion, all these features make it worth the little bit of a premium that you pay. So if you're looking to add some auxiliary lighting above your windshield, but you don't like the newer 50-inch LED light bars, especially on an older TJ, this is an option for getting lights mounted in that location and retaining that little bit of an old school look. This bar might be a couple more dollars than some of the other ones on the market, but in my opinion the additional features make it worth the cost. So that's my review of the Barricade Light Bar fitting all 1997-2006 TJ's that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Let There Be Light. Now you can easily add up to four additional auxiliary lights to your Jeep TJ with this tubular light bar from Barricade Off-Road.

Why pay more?

It's a a bracket, and all of the holes lined up; feels solid and even gives an extra spot to grab if you need as you climb up into your rig. Nice finish on it as well, I would definitely recommend!

I want to buy this for my 2000 TJ, but I'm not sure what kind of lights I should get for it (Fog, driving, etc.) What would be recommended to buy? (I also really like the ones in the picture and it would be nice to know what they are) I do not go on trails often and mainly use my jeep to ride around town.

  • Hello, on the Barricade Light Bar - Textured Black (97-06 Wrangler TJ) you can really any Off Road Lights that have the bolt and nut bracket to be able to install on the pre existing brackets on the Light Bar. When mounting lights up high like that, you really want to go with a Spot pattern so it will give you more distance, when going with Fog or Flood Pattern, that is best to mount in a lower position because it will focus on giving you more of a wide angle view. The lights mounted on the picture are probably the KC HiLiTES 6 in. SlimLite Halogen Lights - Spot Beam - Pair (87-17 Wrangler YJ, TJ & JK) which you can find here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/kc-hilites-chrome-slimlite-fog-lights-130-watt-8717.html

What is the distance in inches between each of the light holes? I'm interested in mounting an LED light bar across the two outside holes.

I have a 2009 Wrangler X, 2 door with soft top. I have read reviews of people installing light bars that will not let them retract the soft top. Will the BARRICADE LIGHT BAR permit retracting the top?

    Barricade light bar

    Honestly the material of the bar is nice along with the way it looks but... when you actually try putting decent lights like KCS in then wires don't even fit into the holes they are so small for some terrible lights. I am very disappointed in the way I had to do extra work and take a drill bit and adjust about every hole.

    This light bar really adds a customized look

    This product looks great and installation should have been a breeze. The product itself was very easy and straight forward to install. The only problem that I had was the existing torx bolts on my jeep. These had to be removed and replaced with the provided hardware, in the process of trying to remove them, all but two of the heads stripped before coming loose. I had to then drill them out and re-tap the holes. This was not the products fault though. Once the bar was installed it looks awesome. I put on four Hella lights and had to do some adjusting to the light brackets. the angle of the brackets made my lights point up in the air. a little tweeking with a pipe wrench and they were fixed. I would recommend this bar to add some good looking character to any jeep.

    Well made product. Suggest you wire all lights first. Get lights close to the elevation you want them, then adjust when installed. I had no issues installing this by myself, however the wiring took around 2 hours. Installing the bar in about 1 hour.

    Good all around light bar

    This is a solid light bar with an aggressive look. Two small problems I had. The first is that running the wire through took some time. Even with metal fish tape, navigating the turn in the tube was difficult. The other is that, the mounting holes didn't quite line up with the torx bolts. I had to do some bending and twisting to get it to work. Now that it's all installed, it looks great. I would recommend this product.

    Lots of compliments so far

    After a few weeks with this light bar, I'm very happy. The lights I mounted make sure I can see everything ahead of me on back roads, and I've gotten tons of compliments in parking lots and from friends. I gave it a lower rating on fitment because I had to file and grind the holes on the mounts to get them to line up with the holes on my windshield hinges. Didn't take long, but still an inconvenience with a fairly simple part. As others have mentioned, the mounting tabs for the lights were tilted too far backward, forcing the lights to point up into the sky. Took a bit of time to massage the tabs and the lights to get them pointed the right direction.

    Very solid construction, didn't feel flimsy or cheap. Holds onto the rig very tightly and DOES NOT WHISTLE! Word to the wise though, make sure your wires will fit the holes provided. I had to cut out bigger holes myself for my 40 amp setup.

    Classic Look Bar Mount for TJ

    Made a big difference (before/after) with the way TJ looks. well constructed bar with the black textured finish (goes well with my Barricade bumpers). had the shop install it since electrical's involved. got a deal on the install for the bar mount, 4 pods on top, 2 pods on sides, and 2 at the front bumper, also tail guards all electrical wiring for 150$. The holes at the top are slightly small and had to drill them bigger so wiring can be done easier. This is obvious, (esp for shop install), but mount the lights, pass the wires through first (on a table top), then connect the bar to the base brackets. Definitely a great deal for the $$ ;)
