*Move post if in wrong spot*
Hi im new around here so sorry if there is a better place for this post.
Anywho ive seen afew builds around here with light bars (IM doing 3! roof, behind grill, lower bumper) but i dont think ive seen anything on mounts specifically for the roof bar i have a 42 on the way and looking for tips or even pics of how you mounted it up. Custom fab mounts or did you buy them? Just looking for some info on it before i just dive in face first haha. Thanks in advance!!

Why in the world would you need that much auxiliary light on a Cruze??? If you need more light I would suggest buying ONE good quality light bar and installing it on/in the lower bumper/grille area and calling it a day...

Not sure how much use you would get on a roof mounted bar unless you plan on off roading your cruze. Im sure you would have to go with a similar mount that Thule uses for their roof rack. Maybe install a roof rack and mount your bar to it.

For my intensified lightning I went with U shape Projector lenses with HIDs and mounted 2 round LED flood lights in my upper grille. http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/36-gen1-audio-electronics/119257-ha-purchased-light-bar-2.html theres a pic here of my lights.

I night fish, i hunt (early morning setup), and many more things at night that a roof bar will come in handy. Lower and weeds and other obstacles may play factors. Living down deep in the woody area and having deer running all over it helps alot. Might be abit over kill but what ever honestly. Plus i personaly think it looks pretty good. But again anyone have any info on mounting?! Lol

Looks like the other poster in that thread referenced above fabricated the mounts himself from aluminum to mount in the door jamb and come out to meet the bar much like what is done to mount them on trucks... If you have the fabrication skills go for it, if not pay a shop to do it for you. If you are having a shop do it, I would suggest an off road shop.

Ive never done a roof bar thats why im asking for alittle more info cause im sure its harder todo on a car lol. With a truck bumper bars are sufficient, car bumper is just a tad lower ?. Ill just have to see where/how works best when i get the bar. Thanks guys.
