    Hey guys. I originally has a whelen guarding light bar and had just mounted it to my bar via drilling some holes. But I replaced it with a brand new whelen justice series bar. I was curious if anyone had pictures or an idea on how to mount it to my backracks L brackets without drilling holes,

    Yes I know. I have them sitting next to my light bar. I am trying to figure out a low profile way of connecting my lightbar to my L brackets with out drilling holes in my new light bar.

    Make an adapter plate with the bolt pattern from the light bar to backrack bolt pattern. Sounds pretty easy.

    Backrack mounting

    I found an economical way to adapt any light to the rack... the pole barn track for the door, cut the notches for the rack and bolt any light you want... The notches are cut in the door slider... I will see if I have pics for you... :):mechanic:
