I like the idea, but my concern (please, if anyone has installed this, ease my mind by explaining exactly how to avoid what is concerning me) in the running of the wires into the interior of the vehicle. How exactly are the wires run so as to not interfere with the window seal and prevent leakage? if this isn't a concern with how the wires are run, by all means, I'm all ears
I'm worried as well. The installation video shows how it's routed, but not sure how it prevents water ingress.

I apologize- I didn't do the best job of answering your questions. The harness is designed to be routed down behind your weatherstripping and underneath your vehicle (above the frame rail). The wiring should never enter the inside of the vehicle or create a gap in the stripping! I hope this helps!

I installed this light towards the end of May (less than 2 months ago) - along with the 50" hood mounted light. Both lights are EXCELLENT - love the clean look & they function better than expected. The install was also VERY easy - all components are provided. My only gripe is related to the rear brackets. I'll start by saying the front hood brackets are a near perfect fit. The rear brackets need bent a substantial amount in order to even start threading the attaching bolt. I contacted DD and they sent me replacement rear brackets (GREAT customer service, BTW!), but the exact same thing - they require a fair amount of bending to fit and then the bolts dig into the brackets. Not only does it look a little "off" when bent but as expected, the rub between the bracket & bolts lead to some rust on the brackets in less two months. I'm not sure why the front brackets are near perfect and the rear brackets are so far off if they're both custom designed for the JL. Just wanted to share my experience and thoughts with these lights.

Hi there! Thank you for the images and feedback. We haven't seen or heard of this issue before, but I have informed my team. This kit was designed to be a direct fit for our 30" light bar. They are going to look into this further and see if they can find out why this has happened. I will respond with any further information.

Thanks!

-Collin
