Was planning to pull the trigger on this, but afraid due to the bracket issues.

Also, can anyone speak to the lighting when the window is up?? I want to illuminate an area when hunting (dark before sunset, dark after) where I'm un-packing and packing. The rear window will be up, but I still want the area lit.

Have you gotten the bracket issue sorted out for the rear roof mounted lightbar yet?
Hey there! We received our new shipments of brackets last week and are testing them as we speak!

Any updates on the new brackets? Not only do these bad brackets bend due to bad fitment, but they also rub against the plastic hinge cover due to the bend/poor fit. I'd like to get the proper brackets ASAP!

Hey DellCook! We are testing our new shipment of brackets on a JL as we speak. We have put aside a set of brackets aside to send over to you as soon as we confirm fitment! If anyone else has experienced a fitment issue with their brackets, please shoot me a PM!

Kudos to @ShockerRacing for making their awesome video featuring both Topsy Hoist Hinge and this rear bar to confirm compatibility. I too will confirm compatibility with pictures to show how it looks. I made sure to torque down the bolt to spec. For those with bracket issues, there is a slight amount of play in the holes of the brackets, make sure to push them closest to the middle as possible as you tighten down, made a huge difference!

Thank you for sharing this! You are correct, there is a slight bit of play in the bolt hole, allowing for adjustment. We recommend aligning and tightening the light bar itself to the brackets before tightening the brackets to the hinge.
