2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited
Folks,

I have a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport JL and think I'm interested in installing a roof mounted light bar. I tow my Jeep behind our motorhome and there are occasions we have been out and could have used the supplemental light from a light bar.

What are the pros/cons of a having a roof mounted light bar? As far as mounting brackets can't say I like the black mounting brackets so I'm assuming I can have those painted white to match my Jeep. The light bar would get occasional use so I'm not looking for a high end light bar rather something middle of the road. Appreciate any comments/suggestions anyone might have on mounting brackets and any recommendations on a suggested light bar to install. I'm also curious about where the light bar on/off switch is installed. I've seen wireless remote switches but not sure they are worth the investment or not. Lastly I've heard many comments about the noise created by a light bar with the wind while driving. Appreciate any comments on that as well.

Thanks,

Michelle :)

If you have the tow package you can wire it to one of the 4 aux switches. That’s my plan.
I know my buddies on a jkur causes soft top flap and noise. It’s annoying. He’s looking into some sort of air dam for behind it.

You’re going to have a hard time mounting above the windshield right now, there aren’t many options available outside of a full sized roof rack.
