    Considering the option on my 2013 Ford Super Duty Crew Cab. Has anyone done it? And what type of mounting options and where did you run the cable?

    I'd suggest a Backrack.

    Ugh.. Yeah. They are just plain ugly. And I hate to have to buy one of those just to mount the bar.

    I have a sunroof on my 14 SD. My liberty is mounted on back rack,the wires ran thru vent on back of cab

    It can be mounted on roof and wiring drilled thru it. I wonder how much wind noise with roof open?

    I forget the name but there's a bracket I've seen that uses the 3rd brake light holes. Worth looking into. Something like Acari mount I think is the name. I've always had a cab guard to mount my Lightbar to- also not sure what kind of weight it will take

    Haha. I ended up mounting it with the Whelen Straps and drilled one hole in the roof. Clean look. And where the gutter mount and feet make contact with the surface, I applied a couple layers of "3M Paint Protection Film" to prevent against chaffing and scratching.
