    Just wondering how everyone has their lights mounted?? I just picked up a nice dual rotator for my ford and am not too sure how I should mount it? I'm going to perma mount it but just looking for tips or tricks as to how the best way is??
    Anyone just have theirs mounted to their roof? If so what did you use to hold it on the roof? Long bolts, self tapping screws. Silicone around the light before mounting it?

    Thanks for any help!!

    If you have a nice looking truck and you don't want to mess it up go with the BackRack

    Don't forget about being able to get your truck in the garage with the light on it. Or low overhangs at places you plow. I have a very bright double flash Ecco strobe with a magnet mount. It comes right off when I finish plowing and sits in the cab dry and warm waiting for the next adventure.

    I have all my lights mounted with magnetic mounts. It makes it easy to move/remove if I need to get the equipment into the garage, tight driveways, repairs, etc.

    I use all magnetic mounts. Easy on and off and if we hit that low hanging tree it knocks the light off the roof instead of breaking it.
