    I'm sure it wouldn't be too terribly hard to fab up something to mount it on the rack. Although I would just buy the mount and not worry about it.

    I drilled holes thru the top bar of my backrack, bolted a steel plate to that which was the same size as the bottom of my lightbar, then bolted my lightbar to the steel plate. Been there for 3yrs with no problems.

    Not the best picture.

    Your choice if you want to Perm mount it or keep with the magnets. IF your going to keep the light on your truck and keep the backrack on it... Do like Mark13 did... now if you want to keep it Mag Mount and there's a chance of taking the rack off the truck... Roof it. Keep the mags just be careful and make sure you put the bar on before the weather hits or you SOL on having a light.

    How fast have you driven with that mag mount?- Any problems with it staying put? I was thinking of doing the exact same thing.

    Truthfully I did it over the summer and have had no problems I like being able to remove easily if I have to.
