Review & Install Video
This is my review and installation of the Mopar front light bar, fitting all 2007 and up JKs. Today, we're going to talk through the installation of this light bar, which will install on your Jeep without the need to drill or cut anything, and very simply. So I'm going to give this a one out of three wrenches, and you should be able to get this done in under an hour. But we'll talk more about that installation in just a second. A light bar like this one is for those of you who aren't interested in changing up the front bumper on the Jeep. You like that factory plastic front bumper. But you do want to change the look of the front of your Jeep, and add some additional functionality by being able to mount up to three additional auxiliary lights. Now, this bar is going to be fairly similar to some of the other ones on the market. It's also going to be similarly priced, which is a bit of a surprise to me. Generally, when you're getting something that is made by Mopar, you're paying a significant premium over some of the other aftermarket. However, this part is still very fairly priced. It's well-built, and I think this is going to be as good of an option as any of the other ones if you're looking to add a light bar to your factory bumper. This is going to be a tubular steel light bar that's covered in a textured black powder coat finish. That's going to do a really nice job of both protecting the steel and matching the factory plastic black accents on your Jeep, as well as a lot of the other aftermarket parts you may have bolted onto your JK. This does have three individual light mount tabs up top. So this is really designed for individual lights, whether they be larger halogen round or HID round lights, or smaller, square LED cubes. You can mount two or three, however many you'd like. If you do want to mount an LED light bar onto this mount, chances are the mounts aren't going to line up exactly with these tabs and you are going to have to do a little bit of fabrication. But that's going to be the case with any one of these bars. Now, this is designed really well. So as I said before, this is going to bolt directly onto your Jeep, without the need to do any major modifications. In fact, you don't even need to remove the front bumper. So to get this installed, as I said before, is a very simple one out of three-wrench installation that you should be able to do in under an hour with just a couple of hand tools. The first step is going to be mounting the brackets onto the side of your frame horns. Now, those brackets are going to come up on the outside of the frame horns and stick up a little bit past the top of your bumper, and that's what this bar is actually going to sit on. You'll go ahead and attach those brackets, using the included hardware, directly onto your frame rails. Then, simply slide this bar on top and attach it with its included hardware. After that, of course, you are going to be mounting your lights. You're going to have to do all of the wiring, and that might take a little bit more time. But as far as the bar itself, definitely under an hour for a very easy install. This light bar comes in at right around $100, which, like I said before, is very affordable for something that comes out of a Mopar box. Generally, if it's Mopar, it says "Jeep" on it. It's officially licensed. You're paying a huge premium over a lot of the other aftermarket. This is very fairly priced. It's also very well built. I think it's well designed in the fact that you don't have to drill or cut anything to get it installed. However, that is going to be similar to a lot of the other aftermarket ones. So if you are looking for a piece like this to add some additional lights onto your factory front bumper, I think this is going to be as good of an option as any and it is affordably priced. So if you like that factory plastic front bumper on your JK, you're not ready to swap it out for a plate steel, more off-road-friendly bumper, however, you do want to add some auxiliary lighting for the functionality and also for the looks, this is going to be an easy bolt-on option that isn't going to be way over-priced when you compare it to a lot of the other aftermarket. So that's my review of the Mopar front light bar, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
