    I jsut ordered a plow to put on my jeep wrangler. i do our driveway and the parking lot at our hair/tanning salon. the light I have for our old plow truck is a magnetic roof mount.....well the jeep has a fiberglass roof so that is no good. what i would like is a light I can mount to the light bar i have on it already. it will fit 5 standard off road lights and i have 4 on it now so figured I could mount it in the middle which is open, but I hanve't been able to find any with the right type of mount. all i have seen is magnetic, or light bars that get bolted on. I jsut wnt a single light with a single stud comming down to go through the hole in the mounting tabs on the light bar. anyone know where to find such a light??

    a mount like this....but obviously with an amber revolving light or a strobe even.

    Can you put a round piece of plate metal attached with a stud and use the magnet mount on that?

    go to someplace that fabs/welds metal and give them the size you want and I am sure they can make you something up...

    Does the magnet on the light have a hole in the center? If so, then get a couple of metal electrical outlet covers, drill a hole in the middle of them, and put a bolt through the hole, then bold this setup to your light bar.

    Bingo.

    I appreciate the help. was kind of looking for something permanent though and rather not use the magnet if i don't have to!! but it is looking like that is what will happen.

    You can do something similar with a permanent mount light... Have a fab shop make a plate that you can mount to you light bar, then mount a permanent light to the plate... should not be to bad...
