Fitted my Uneek bash plate. Looks good, I just wish it had holes like the bar for access to the bolts, but I guess that would loose strength. It would just make removal for access underneath a 5 min job

Just Look for mud flaps at the moment myself. What are the ones you have put on, how good is the fit , (Photo's)where did you get them. What have you got on the back.
I've been to Autobarn & Supercheap couldn't find something that would fit.
OEM front seem to long (low) and as you say rigid. Back ones may be ok but still concerned re to rigid.
Thx Mort.

Mine came from SuperCheap. They were the largest flat ones they had and I just cut to size and shape. They are still going strong after 80,000 kms with a lot of outback travel.

Over the last week I have fitted my new 44.5" roof-mounted lightbar and had it wired up today—I'm pretty happy with the result!



I haven't been out on the road yet to take some long distance snaps, but here are a couple in the driveway demonstrating the light output. These have been taken with a DSLR on a tripod using manual exposure to show exactly the difference in light output.

Very nice!

How does it go for clearance in car parks and such now?

Looks like the bar is high enough and far enough forward that it'll put glare onto the bonnet?

Thanks mate, the height as it stands right now is 1,930mm so I'm pretty safe for most shopping centres and undercover carparks. I feel like this still buys me enough room to do a lift in the future too without compromising on practicality.

Ideally I would have liked it to be mounted completely in line with the Rhino Rack, but the mounting brackets put it where it is so I'll try it out for a while and see how it goes before looking to revise the mount.

The photo is also a little deceiving for illustrating the position of the bar—it is back a reasonable distance from the front edge of the roof.

I also sat in the Jeep last night when I flicked it on and didn't feel like I was getting any light in the face. A lot of what is lighting up the bonnet is just reflection back from the garage door. I will confirm tonight though when I take it out for a drive and post some more shots.

Thanks mate, the bar is from Stedi. I have the 44.5" bar, but the same style also comes in 8, 17, 24, 31, 38 and 48" variations. I went with this bar because it looks good and they seem to get a pretty good wrap through their social media. The price is also pretty reasonable.

I found some time to go out to test and align the lightbar tonight and just as I did last time I've taken some photos with a camera on a tripod set to manual exposure.

I'm pretty happy with the light output of the bar—it seems to be an excellent combination of spread and spot.

Also, to further answer a previously asked question, yes it does put some light on the bonnet, but I drove a good 40km tonight and didn't find this to be a distraction. A combination of my driving position not allowing me to see much of the bonnet and the fact that the road around the Jeep is so well lit up meant it just didn't seem to matter that there was some light being projected onto it.
