Should I build a lightbar for up here? I have 6 lights I can mount up front. I was thinking 4 on a rack up top and 2 on the front bumper. Then I have 2 smaller ones for reverse lights

Sweet lights, technically I think overhead lightbars are restricted to off-road only, but you might not get hassled with the covers on them.

I'm 95% sure the opaque covers will suffice for street use. I could also make it so you could only give them power from outside the cab.

i have tried that route before and i found it had to much glare on the hood and other bits. You might have some serious shine through the t-tops.

but if you like having the wide viewing angle that can be accomplished with roof lights then go for it. I ended up moving all mine to the bumper.

What sort of lights were you using? These are pencil beams, I was hoping that would avoid that problem...

lol nice work!

Keep in mind that mine DID run. Quite well actually... It just slowly degraded while I was working out the 'debugging' and buttoning up... I guess I wasn't doing it right...
