    Has anyone found better mounting brackets for mounting an light bar to the top of a liberty than just drilling through the top?:help:

    If no drilling then your only options are mounting to roof rack or some type of roof rail (that I know of)
    I have mine mounted inside the doors covered by the weather stripping
    Solid as a rock and looks great

    Mount it to the front bumper, way better location and you'll get more use out of it.

    Lights look cool up there but on your bumper is way more practical.

    Not sure what you mean
    Light Bar brand: Auxbeam 42" curved
    I've had great experience with them and they have excellent products at a good price
    The mounts: curved mounts for a GMC/Chevy (not sure what year)
    It's solid and gives great light

    I have tried various roof lights over the last 40 years on pickups, CJs, EBs, Cherokees and even an LED light bar on the Kili
    Never liked anything I had due to various reasons. Good lights on the bumper do best all around for me

    I used plastic anchors, hella 500 kit, and an aluminum light bar mount from amazon. I used the existing license plate mount at a brace (due to the contours of the bumper). Instead of the self tap screws, I used longer, thicker bolts. Worked like a charm.
