    Does anyone know what the best way to mount a yellow warning strobe on a Jeep Wrangler without drilling through the fiberglass top.

    I used a tall "L" shaped bar that went into my receiver hitch and extended above my roof, with a flat platform to bolt the light to. I ran the wires through the rear window zipper and just plugged it into the cigarette lighter to turn it on.

    This isn't my rig, it belongs to another member at www.jeepsunlimited.com

    It looks like he has it mounted with the windshield hinge bolts.

    There are strobes out there that are attached to the roof by suction cups. They're easy to remove when you not plowing in the winter. We have them on both trucks at work.

    i know they make some strobes that are magnetic, I understand it is fiberglass, so maybe you could get a large magnet for the inside and just clamp them to the fiberglass

    I don't have a pic but my buddy welded up a bracket that mounts to the tire carrier where the bolts hold the tire on. He made it llike a vertical reciever hitch. When he goes out to plow he slides it in the bracket and plugs in the wires.I thought it was a good idea!

    Mounted on one Thule ski rack. Marine grade cable between hardtop and windshield frame.

    Any light bar (usually for off-road lights) made for a Wrangler would work well too. I do not like the ones that require drilling into the windshield frame, but there are some that bolt to the hinges and loop around the glass.
