    Not a chev, or a whelen, but same dilemma. I bought 2 pieces of aluminum flat stock a little longer than the lightbar, bolted the lightbar to them, than the magnets out on the ends, so I effectively spread the magnets apart a little further to sit between the ribs. There is much more material to keep the bar in place between the ribs than sitting on top of them.
