- How to Install Off Camber Fabrications by MBRP Dual Windshield Pillar Light Kit on your Wrangler
I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review and installation of the Off Camber Fabrication by MBRP dual windshield pillar light mount kit fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. Off Camber Fabrication also has a single light mount kit if that's what you're looking for. Today we're going to talk about the construction and of course the installation of this kit. These are for those of you who want to run some off road auxiliary lights on the A-pillar of your Jeep. There are a lot of companies out there including Off Camber Fabrication that make single light pod mounts for the A-pillar so that you can put one light on either side of the windshield. This kit from Off Camber Fab is designed to allow you to put two light pods on either side of the windshield. I really like that because it allows you to have four different lights switched independently aimed in different locations or a completely different beam pattern or color. This gives you a lot of flexibility. The other nice thing about the way that these brackets are designed is because they don't wrap around to the side of the A-pillar you can run these with a 50 inch light bar mount as well. They can work in conjunction with those other mounts where some of the other mounts on the market will not allow you to do that. Off Camber Fabrication is known for making really high quality products and a lot of their stuff, their bumpers in particular, can be very expensive, but for the quality of these A-pillar lights I think they're very fairly priced. These light brackets are designed for an LED light because they do have a much smaller body than a more traditional halogen light. That allows the brackets to be more compact and keep the light nice and close to the windshield. You can probably fit some smaller halogen lights on these brackets but, again, they're designed specifically for a smaller bodied LED light pod. They will work with any traditional LED light pod that has a single post mount. The mounting holes themselves on the bracket are slotted which gives you some adjustability to move that light forward and backward. As I mentioned before, the way these are designed is to allow them to work with a 50 inch light bar, either the dual or the single from Off Camber Fabrication or a lot of the other 50 inch light bar brackets on the market. These are a steel product. They're powder coated in a black finish which is going to match a lot of other aftermarket parts that are on your Jeep. They do include a rubber gasket to go in between the painted surface of your windshield hinges, and the brackets keep everything from chafing and causing damage to your factory OEM paint. I know I said that these will work with any LED light pod and that's true, but I would definitely recommend taking a look at a spot pattern light if you're going to run something up on the A-pillar. If you use a flood pattern light, it can throw a lot of light onto your hood which can then bounce back into the driver's eye causing a little bit of night blindness. There are some ways to eliminate some of that reflection off of the hood with different hood decals or matte black on the hood, but really the A-pillar location is best for some spot lights unless you're running a dual light setup where you had one light that was aimed out to the gutter in which case you could have a flood on the outside. Anything that's forward facing I would definitely recommend going with a spot. Getting these installed on your Jeep is going to be a very simple process. All you need to do is remove two screws from the hinge cover on your JK, put the bracket in place with of course the gasket in between the painted surface and the bracket, and then replace the factory bolts. The kit does include new longer bolts that will be used if you're putting these on top of a 50 inch light bar mount because of course you have the additional thickness of a little bit more metal and you would need the slightly longer bolts. Regardless of your setup, you're going to have all the hardware that's necessary to get it installed right in the box. The whole installation for this shouldn't take you more than a half an hour although wiring can take a little bit more time depending on your comfort level and how clean you want to run everything. You won't need any specialty tools to get this done but a good set of Torx bits. As I mentioned before, Off Camber Fabrication is known for making really high quality stuff and that commands a very high price tag. While these aren't going to be as inexpensive as maybe a Rugged Ridge or a Smittybilt single light mount for the A-pillar, in my opinion they are very fairly priced for what you get. The build quality and the finish quality on these is there. You're able to mount two lights instead of one. If you compare them to something like, say, a Rigid dual light mount, these are very fairly priced. If you're looking to add some off road auxiliary lighting onto your Jeep and you want some LED light pods on the A-pillar, these brackets are a great way to be able to mount two light pods on each side of the windshield for individual switching, different beam patterns or even different colors. And, they do it with a really easy installation at a fair price. That's my review of the Off Camber Fabrication by MBRP dual windshield pillar light mount kit fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
