Simple installation for anyone.
The Raxiom 13 and a half inch double row LED light bar is a little bit unique, because there aren't a lot of mounts for a thirteen and a half inch bar. So you are going to have to get a little bit creative with how you attach this to your Jeep. However, if you're looking for a smaller bar for a more unique setup, either hanging it underneath the brush guard on a front bumper, or as a reverse light setup, or even up on a roof rack. A 13 and a half inch bar can fit in a lot of places that a larger bar cannot. So there are certainly pros and cons with this size of a bar. However, as always with a Raxiom light bar, you're getting a high quality bar at a lower cost than some of the other ones on the market. It's gonna last a long time, and throw a ton of light. The way this light is constructed is out of a die cast aluminum housing with a polycarbonate lens that is designed to resist cracking and scratching. The whole thing together does have a waterproof IP-67 rating. And it does come with these small mounting feet, along with some additional mounting hardware, and some rubber gaskets to go between the feet and whatever surface you're mounting the light on. In total, this light does have 24 Cree LEDs producing a total of 4,300 lumens. And this is going to be a combination spot and flood pattern. On the outside here, you're going to have to a couple of LEDs with the optics designed for a flood pattern to really throw light everywhere, and these center LEDs have a much more focused spot beam, so you get that throw all the way down the trail far in front of you. Speaking of the trail, these lights are designed for off-road use only. You're not gonna want to use this light on the road, because the spot and the flood pattern are going to throw light all over the place, and definitely go in the eyes of oncoming traffic. I would give the installation of this light a very simple one out of three wrenches, but that is going to vary depending on how you want to install this light. Again, there aren't a lot of mounts for this light. For 21 and a half inch, for a 50 inch, of course they're going to mount in a very specific location on the Jeep, and there are a ton of mounts that you can buy to install that light without the need to drill anything. However, with this light there's a chance depending on where you want to mount it that you are going to have to drill a couple of holes. So if you are going to be drilling, it does make the installation a little bit more difficult. As with most LED light bars on the market, this one comes with a two wire pigtail, so you will have to do a little bit of wiring to get this set up. Now, it is an LED light bar, so it doesn't draw a ton. However, I always like to wire these up with a relay. Raxiom does have a really nice wiring harness that includes everything from a relay, to a fuse, to a switch, and makes getting any one of their light bars or light pods wired up a very, very simple process. Now the whole installation for this light bar I'm gonna say will take around an hour, but again, that depends completely on where you're mounting it, how you're mounting it, and how you're wiring it. As far as tools, you're most likely going to need a drill bit and a drill to bore a couple of holes to mount this down, and you're going to need all of your wiring tools as well. Unless you purchase one of those wiring harnesses from Raxiom,which will make getting this wired up very easy. From a price and value standpoint, I think you get a lot of bang for your buck with the Raxiom lights. They produce a ton of light output. I really like the beam pattern. They're a well built, high quality light. They hold up a long time on the trail and on the street, even in the salt spray of the winter roads up here in our area. There are light bars that are on the market of this size that are going to be two and three times what this light bar costs. And yes, they may have a little bit more research and time into the optics. They might throw light a little bit further down the trail. But to be completely honest with you, for what most of us are using our lights for, a light like this one from Raxiom will give you a really nice mix of the quality and fair price. That's my review of the Raxiom thirteen and a half inch LED light bar, fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Good lighting, easy install
Item shipped and arrived in great condition within 3 days of the purchase. Install was easy as I already had old lighting fixtures I took off the bumper and replaced with the new light bar. Only complaint is that the hardware is already rusting after a week. Otherwise it’s a great, inexpensive option for extra lighting.Helpful (7)

Good light but need longer bolts to mount the light the bracket. I found a perfect match that is longer at auto zone.Helpful (9)
Does the light bar come with the brackets that bolt on to the grill like shown in the first picture, and would it have a place to bolt on or would I have to drill into the grill to bolt on the brackets?
The Raxiom 21.5 in. Double Row LED Light Bar does not include the bracket that is shown in the first photograph. Those brackets are to reference the possible mounting positions for the light bar. We sincerely apologize for this confusion.
What is the difference of this bar and the Raxiom 50 in. Straight Dual Row LED Light Bar - Flood/Spot Combo (87-17 Wrangler YJ, TJ JK)?
The Raxiom 50 in. Straight Dual Row LED Light Bar and Raxiom 50 in. Double Row LED Light Bar will be very similar, with the largest/most noticeable difference being in the background around the LED's. Raxiom 50 in. Double Row LED Light Bar will be completely chrome, whereas the Raxiom 50 in. Straight Dual Row LED Light Bar will have a dark background.
Is there a windshield mount that can have the light bar and body lights on it?
We carry the Raxiom 50 in. LED Light Bar Windshield Mount with Auxiliary Bracket, item number J106744 which would allow you to mount the Raxiom 50 in. Double Row LED Light Bar as well as two cube lights.
Are there covers available for this?
At this time we would not have any light covers for this light bar.
The mounts on my brush guard are 12" on center. Can the Mounting feet brackets be "swapped" so the mount holes are under the light? If so what would the distance be from mount hole to hole?? Thanks Bob F.
The Raxiom 13.5 in. Double Row LED Light Bar will not allow the mounting feet to be inverted.
The Raxiom 21.5 in. Double Row LED Light Bar will not mount directly on the bumper, to do so you would have to drill into the bumper and use the supplied L brackets which comes with the light bar.
All the lights light up together, the outer lights are flood and the inner are spot lights. The focal length is not adjustable.
The Mopar Light Bar is designed for the use of 3 individual lights.

The Raxiom 50 in. Double Row LED Light Bar does come with the small mounting bracket but if you are planning on mounting it above your windshield, you would need to drill directly into the body of your vehicle. In doing so, you may damage your vehicle or possibly have a water leak that may run into the interior of your vehicle. We recommend using the windshield mounting brackets that reuse bolt holes that are already found on your vehicles A Pillar to install this Light Bar.
The Raxiom 13.5 in. Double Row LED Light Bar will have a mount spacing of approximately 14.5"
When installing the Raxiom 50 in. Double Row LED Light Bar you can use any of the 50" light bar brackets we offer, such as the units linked below: https://www.extremeterrain.com/raxiom-50-in-led-light-bar-windshield-mount-9706.html https://www.extremeterrain.com/raxiom-50-in-led-light-bar-windshield-mount-w-auxilliary-bracket-9706.html
Thank you for your question. At this time we do not offer 50" light bar covers, I do apologize.
