Hey, what's up, guys? Ryan here from ExtremeTerrain, and today I'm here with the DV8 Off-Road 50 inch Over-Windshield Light Bar Mounting Brackets fitting your 2018 an up Jeep Wrangler JL. This is gonna be for the off-roading enthusiast that's looking for a unique and affordable set of brackets to help them out that 50-inch light bar up there.Light bars are a great option in the off-roading world because they mount high giving you a high vantage point of light shining down on everything and this is really gonna come in handy whether you're just trail riding winching or spotting. Now, these brackets are gonna fit up to a 54 inch light bar and they're constructed of heavy-duty steel, making them very strong. Whole thing's finished off with a textured black powder coating. It's gonna add to that aggressive styling and provide corrosion protection. It is one of the few options to choose from currently on the site for the JLs and at just around $170 I think this is a pretty good option to go with, even comes with a three-year warranty.Now as far as installation goes, I'm gonna give this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter as you can get these things installed in less than an hour just using basic hand tools. Now with that being said, let's hop into the install. Tools we use for this install: 3/8 drive impact, T40 torx.So to get started off with this installation, the first thing we need to do is remove some of our factory bolts. These brackets reuse factory mounting points, so we're gonna take out some of these bolts in our cowl panel. We need a T40 torx to take out these two lower ones and this upper one here. So these are the top two bolts. We're not gonna take out this front one, we're gonna take up this rear one just below the windshield.So at this point in time, we're ready to install our brackets, we're gonna start over here on the driver side and we're gonna reuse this factory bolts as well. Now, this top one has a long shoulder, so we're gonna start with that one first. Then we're gonna reinstall our side bolts. After that, we can take our T40 torx and we can just snug these bolts up a little bit. So now that we have this bracket completely installed, we're gonna do the same exact thing to get that other side installed.That's gonna wrap up my review and install.

Light bar mounts
Absolutely love the look on my 2019 JL Sport S wrangler. Only issue is they need to include longer bolts for the cowel covers and specify if it can or cannot be used to mount a curved light bar. Had to order longer bolts and fabricate an adapter for the 50 slim curved bar. Otherwise a 5 star.Helpful (0)

Went to install only to find out that could not re-use the original bolts due to to short once brackets in place the top 2 bolts would still work but the bottom ones will not workHelpful (2)

Straight Up Doesn't Fit
They straight up don't fit. Had to use all 4 door hinge bolts to get the brackets on. After dealing with that, I found out a 50 inch light bar leaves about a 2-inch gap. Had to jury rig some spacers to get the light bar on. Spend the extra $50 and get something else. Extreme Terrain shouldn't sell these anymore. It is trash. The brackets did come with a backing, which was nice...Helpful (4)

Worst thing I ever bought.
They look nice when installed. But they come with no bolts to mount them. The factory bolts are not long enough. After mounting the brackets the drivers side was so close to the windshield it would hit the upright every bump. Then after about 3 weeks the spot welds on the bolt mounts broke and the bracket fell off. I have decided to not purchase anything DV8 ever again. For the price I paid should of been a way better product than what I got. I suggest steering away from purchasing these. Wish I had the reviews when I bought mine.Helpful (5)

These came in with no instructions and no hardware. Not that you need instructions, it's simple, but the no hardware is what made me mad. I had to go buy new hardware because what you have won't work. The light bar I bought from XT was also junk no instructions and quit the next morning. It was VERY hard to get the 50" light bar to fit but it does fit!Helpful (3)

They did not fit my 50" light bar and the the using your own hardware is out of the question, the bolts are too short. I was so excited to finally find these for my JL :( Will be returning and searching again.Helpful (3)

Good Look and great for the light Bar
the install part as people are saying is a headache! I had to swap my door hinge bolts that are longer with one bolt on each side to get the bolts in all the holes! I also had to go buy rubber stoppers to place up the windshield behind so it did not rattle as i went over bumps. It looks great but needs to come with other items to be a much better product. Add in longer bolts and rubber padding to not mess up the paint and this product goes from 3 to 5 stars!Helpful (7)

Will not fit at all can only get 3 bolts in and the 4 th is IMPOSSIBLE to get in!!Helpful (5)
Does this have padding included so the factory paint underneith is not damaged?
This would not come with any padding on theback of it no.
Can you please provide L*W*H of the package and weight?
Weight : 20 pounds Dimensions : 36"x11"x9"
Why are bolts not included if the factory ones are too short to use?
Can someone suggest padding to put under these so they don't chip the paint? And are 8mm bolts 20mm long enough on the sides?
At this time, we are unaware of any padding compatible with these.
Do these brackets fit 2013 Wrangler sport unlimited.
These brackets are designed for the JL wranglers only.
These would be able to hold up to limb risers yes.
This would have universal fitment for either the right or left side of your Jeep!
