    I made this one in a couple of hours. I had to make my own to keep the cover. I have more front & side pics if you need them

    There is two different mounts you can use that Back Rack makes. the L style and the plate style hat I used. The L style I used on the work lights left and right as you can see in the photo. I can get you part numbers if you need them. The Whelen STUD style brackets are below as well, those are the ones I have new in the box. I got two pair thinking the came individual, but they sell as a pair.

    what i did was take a piece of flat stock(steel) as wide as where the feet go in then drill it and weleded two bolts through it to use for studs put those through the backrack brackets and the nuts on the other side. also i used the piece of metal from the feet to hgold everything in place.

    theres some pictures here : http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=65656

    I hear ya there Brad, I got a head ache enough with all the wiring of everything to add to it with mounting. Keep it simple, & neat was my thought.

    ahhh, The Stud mounts from Whelen is MK9S. The "L" brackets you have are 91006, and the platform I used was 91002REC. Hope thats what you were looking for.

    I have a pair here, measure the width of just the track where the mounts go and I can tell you if it will work. I believe they do though. You can get them online
