? on windshield mounted light on CJ

I want to mount a couple of light on my windshield hinge, but I don't think I will be able to see my passenger side mirror? Has anyone with CJ style mirrors install sights there? Does everything clear OK?

Re: ? on windshield mounted light on CJ

you can actually see something in that mirror? i dont like the hinge mounted lights due to the fact of you can not lower your windshield.. conferr and some other places make brackets for up along the side of the windshield.. if you do that and run the lights top surface flush with the top of the windshield.. then you can still put the windshield down.. and plus it gets the lights higher up off the hood.. when you have them lower. you will notice alot of reflection off the hood.. pretty worthless there in my opinion..

If you do get them, don't get the steel horse. At least two of the bolt holes on either side didn't line up, and the stud of the lights was too large to fit through the tab on the bracket. I hate buying something only to have to modify it to make it work. It would have been much easier with a welder.

Who needs a road...if there's a perfectly good JEEP trail somewhere else!?

Hey jeepgod
Haven't seen those mounting brakets yet, I'll have to look em up.
And yes I see a lot out of that mirror, and for as much road driving I do in this jeep it is nice to have.
Thanks

Re: ? on windshield mounted light on CJ

I got the Conferr Light mounts. They are great. You can mount them higher on the windshield frame, but not so high that the trees take a wack at your lights everytime on the trail. The only bad thing about them are that you have to drill holes in the side of your frame. If you dont fear drilling holes, then go get em tiger [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
They are real sturdy also. Also if you plan on folding down the windshield with them, you do have to take time and measure with the windshield down. My lights would have contacted the fenders when folded down if they are lower to the windshield hinge.
