    Hey guys, I just bought a bar light for in the back window of my truck. What are my mounting options for this? I don't want to permanently mount it though because I am selling my truck after this season. What are my options? The guy I bought it from said that the suction cups suck, have you guys found any other mounts that aren't permanent? Thanks for the help.

    I have a 04 Sierra. I took the back to push in headliner buttons (i guess they are called) out and then took out my third break light and installed 2 bolts from inside the roof down into the cab where the hole for those buttons went. Then had a helper hold the light up in place and started threading the buts onto the bolts. I put a wrench inside the opening from the third break light and had my helper tighten everything down. I then reinstalled the third break light. Honestly the whole process took about a half hour to install on my truck. Pics can be seen in link in my sig below labeled my ebling. Go to page 2 and its post 32. I installed stainless caps on the ends of the bolts to dress it up a bit. It looks real nice. Wiring was kinda messy when the pic was taken as I just had everything hooked up. It has now since been cleaned up.

    No flash back at all. I cut the wind shield visor flash with the light heads before installing it.
