Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Kargo Master Congo Pro Front Hoop Light Bar fitting all 2007 and up JKs. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of this Hoop, which is a very simple one out of three wrenches. This is going to bolt directly in place on your Jeep without the need to drill or modify anything permanently. We're also gonna talk through the construction and a few of the features of this Hoop. And even though this is called a light bar, it does not have any light mounts welded across the top here. It does, however, have a few threaded holes down on the mounting locations. This step will mount directly onto the windshield hinges of your JK like most other light mount hoops of this style. This does have a couple of threaded holes down there so that you can mount up to four individual cubes, light cubes. Any cubes that mount with a traditional single post light mount, you'll be able to thread directly on here. Now, one thing to note is that this will put the lights out sticking to the side of your JK instead of to the front directly in front of your A pillars so it is going to be a little bit of a different look, just something to consider when looking at this part. Now, this is really going to be a base piece. This is going to be a base that can be tied into a Kargo Master Congo loop rack that you can get an additional light mount tabs for, for up here along the top to mount either additional light mount cubes or light bars of various sizes. This also has a step section that can go along the bottom of your windshield if you decided you wanted to install that. This really is a base piece that you can build off of. You can certainly run this by itself, but it is designed more of a base so that you can start adding a lot of other Kargo Master accessories onto it. As far as construction goes, as I said before, this is going to be a completely bolt-on installation, like most other light bar hoops over the windshield like this will be. You're going to remove a couple of bolts from the windshield hinges and this is going to bolt directly into place. This is a two-inch round tubing that's covered with a zinc coating, and then finally finished with an epoxy of marine-grade black powder coating. This is going to hold up really well over time, you're not going to have to worry about any rusting with this, it is going to be a really tough coating. Now, Kargo Master does say that this will provide some rollover protection. After looking at it, it is a very well built piece, but I personally don't know how much rollover protection this is going to offer. That being said, I've never seen a Jeep that had this installed that rolled over and seen the aftermath of it, it just doesn't seem like this is going to add a ton of rollover protection. But what this will add is again, a base for a lot of other Kargo Master accessories. This does have handles built right into it. That'll help you get in and out of your JK a little bit, especially when you don't have the doors on. And it does have the ability to mount a couple of light cubes right out of the box. But this is really something that's designed for you to starting to add a lot of other Kargo Master accessories onto and to build in as part of a roof rack, light mount, grab handle, a little bit of everything cage on your JK. As far as getting this installed, something that makes it a little bit unique over some of the other light hoops, is that this is a one-piece design. This is going to be a very simple one out of three wrenches because it is designed to bolt directly in place on your JK. All you need to do is first remove a couple of the screws from your windshield hinges, place the bar in place and use the included hardware to bolt it into place. Now, because this is one-piece design, you are going to, almost definitely, need two people in order to install this. Or you're gonna have to build some sort of contraption to hold the other side up and keep it from scratching your Jeep. Two people are definitely recommended for this install, but again, a very easy install that you're gonna be able to get done in well under an hour. As far as tools you're going to need, just a torque spit to remove those factory windshield hinge bolts and your traditional hand tools to get this bolted up. As far as the value you get for the cost of this bar, I think you do get a good bit of value. I think that for the build quality and for the quality of the coating, ensuring you're not going to end up with any rust, I think that this is very fairly priced. That being said, this is most likely going to be part of a full cage with a lot of light mounts or a roof rack or whatever else you might want to add on to this. This is really a base piece. So in my opinion, it should be less expensive. It should be priced exactly where it is because you're not just buying this part, you're buying this, plus a lot of other things from Kargo Master in order to build your cage exactly how you want it. So again, I think you get a lot of value, I think it's really well built, and I think it is priced fairly for what you're getting. If you're looking to build a Kargo Master cage, or you just want a stand-alone hoop that has a couple of light mounts and some grab handles built into it, this is going to be a well-built option that is appropriately priced. So, that's my review of the Kargo Master Congo Pro Front Hoop Light Bar, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

More than Just Protection. The Congo Pro Front Hoop/Light Bar offers more than protection for your windshield in the event of rollover or falling debris. It's part of the Congo Pro system. Order the front-to-rear rails (parts #55020 or #55025) to create your Congo Pro Cage. However, the Congo Pro Hoop is also a fine addition by itself. The hoop provides a sturdy mount point for accessory lighting and a whole list of other accessories to make your trail runs safer and more interesting.

Built for Extreme Use. The Congo Pro Front Hoop is made of 2" diameter heavy-steel tubing. It's finished with Kargo Master's zinc-epoxy primer topped with marine-grade black powder coating. This process provides the best long-term protection against rust and corrosion. The structure of the hoop is covered under Kargo Master's limited lifetime warranty.

Easy Installation. The Congo Pro Hoop attaches to existing factory bolt holes on your Jeep. No drilling or cutting should be necessary. Industrial-grade fasteners are provided in the kit, along with step-by-step instructions.

Application. This Kargo Master Congo Pro Front Hoop Light Bar is designed to fit 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JKs. Fits both 2- and 4-door models.

will the JK LoPro 55045 accessory bar kit, fit this 55015 front hoop bar? Want to complete the full exterior package.

I've been trying to find something to meet the needs of putting things on the roof with an existing tail hitch water craft (extended bay) rack that I have. That being said I'm trying to determine if this above the soft top notches and would provide sufficient clearance for something to rest straight over top of the roof. Granted I know a lot of it depends on the hitch attachment I have but I'm mainly just trying to determine if this bar actually clears above the roof or sits level with the top part of the front window. Sorry if that doesn't make sense, but just trying to find a relatively simple solution to carrying a kayak, lumber, or other items that just don't fit in the trunk. I don't really like the look of the "cages" and other roof racks that all seem to require 20 pieces woven across the top.

  • The bottom of the bar will sit level with the top part of the window.

Any chance of making Congo pro hoop light bar for a TJ ? Why just the JK ? Would buy it if it had this option. Disappointed.

  • The Kargo Master Congo Pro Front Hoop Light Bar will not fit the TJ due to differences between the bodies of the two models. At this time, Kargo Master does not offer a version of this for the TJ.

    Wind Noise

    Very easy 2 person install, just to ensure you don't chip paint. Very sturdy and useful load capability. Prepare for additional wind noise especially if you have a soft top or sunrider for a hard top. This thing generates air turbulance and causes my sunrider to make lots of noise. Recommend Kargo master make it easily removable, I am cutting mine just below the handles and inserting an inner tube so I can remove when not carrying my canoe. Placing plastic caps on the open holes for cosmetic and installing quick release push pins for install and removal.

    Nice product.

    Put it on in less than an hour. Great grabs make it easy to get into the vehicle and has convenient locations to connect a number of 2x2 LED’s.

    First step of Roof Rack install

    Quick delivery. Simple install. Very, very solid. Arrived in perfect condition with all the pieces. Videos available through Extreme Terrain made the purchase decision easier with information and demonstrations provided. I will be purchasing the rest of the kit with these folks shortly.

    Looks great - however

    The Look and feel is great, love the product. The fit with each other - is too tight, and the installation was harder than shared from their videos/instruction manual. Need to better "fit and finish" both pieces as they sell this as an integrated package.

    Amazing product, great versatility.

    I searched high and low for a lightbar design that would allow fitment of an AEV snorkel, future roof rack installation and still have decent appearance and Kargo Master absolutely hit it out the park with this A-frame bar. The passenger side grab-bar did have to be cut off to fit my snorkel, but once done, the snorkel fit perfectly with the bar in place. The bar itself is one of the highest quality pieces I've seen and fit like a glove onto my JK, I was able to drill my own holes and run wiring to mount traditional lights where I wanted and the other accessories that Kargo Master offers for this bar makes it a slam dunk for versatility, I'm surprised more people aren't running this product, I can't say enough great things about it.

    Kargo Master needs to get their act together!

    Finally received the KArgo Master Congo Pro Front Hoop light bar after waiting for what seemed like a long period of time. It appeared very well manufactured with an excellent powder coated surface, but the pre-drilled holes were not correctly aligned with the JK windshield bolt holes. Extreme Terrain was excellent in helping me deal with the problem and setup a return and re-ship of a replacement Front Hoop. The replacement Front Hoop showed up lose inside a squashed box with no protection other than a clear plastic sleeve. I noticed numerous flaws, scratches and imperfections in or to the Powder coating. I am very surprised by what seems to be a lack of product quality control and care in packaging and shipping, especially considering this was a replacement product. I expect over a period of time its going to take abuse and possibly get some scratches or chips, but it should still arrive looking new not used. I am very Disappointed, I was really looking forward to this install.

    I have this for my JK and added the light bar and like the value for the quality of this product. I have not mounted any of the light cubes but love it with the light bar mounted on!
