    So I LOVE lights and LEDs.

    Id like to add a bunch of lights to the back to light up a camp site lol

    Anyway, anyone know how this can be accomplished?

    Zroadz has a sweet mount that installs to the hinges of the rear window but it only accepts zroads specific lights.

    I was thinking of something like this:

    I could extend with a piece of aluminum and mount some other LEDs.

    Any thoughts?

    Get a big roof rack and mount a light bar on the rear facing rearward. Or on the sides facing out. Or both. More lights.

    I was thinking this. Wasnt ready for roof rack though lol

    Ideally, roof rack with LEDs mounted all around to light up the entire ground around the Jeep. Incase i get stuck and vampires come for me, they burn as long as I'm inside the jeep....

    Kidding. But sort of not.

    Just remember to protect the light better from attack... Dr. Robert Neville was almost a goner once the vamps swarmed.[​IMG]

    Keep in mind that when you open the rear window, it'll block a roof mounted light.

    Do you need it mounted outside the Jeep, or could a Brawlee tailgate light work? The amount of light it puts out is incredible.
