Oh, I forgot to mention: they don't help one iota when you're driving into a head-wind. They're like big sails.

Man, if you'd just turn the lights around, you could use them as a photon drive and go green...

And the Cibie's would look like French boobs mounted that way.

Ahh, excellent, perfect! That stupid idea has been successfully wiped from my cranium.

Extra points to Hazy for eloquence and Baldy for summing it all up in one concise, three letter word. The logical responses were helpful too!

Thank you all for your support.

Just to further beat a dead horse, I have heard that in some states the local DOT laws don't allow for roof mounted lights (I believe WV is an example) and most of the rest require them to be covered.

I'm not sure how the Liberty is exempt, but it would suck to add insult to injury having those crappy lights on your roof and then to get ticketed.

Jeep Liberty light bar.

Indignant responses questioning my state of mental health, gender preference, parental lineage, etc., would all probably be very effective.


If you need assistance in figuring all that out, you really need professional help anyways so I won't waste time typing it out. The best placement for lights is on the bumper, behind a bushbar far enough to protect them from big stuff. Also having protection for stones and rocks is good too, but not the plastic covers, all they do is get the airflow off the light and shorten the bulb life. Another thing to take into consideration is not having too many lamps blocking airflow to the rad. Stock lighting is OK, but if you are electrically savvy, you can run larger guage (ie 8 or 10 G) wire from a relay for both high and low beams coming from your column switch. This gives you a lot more power to the bulbs, and consequently better lighting, meaning less auxilliary lighting. I was running 2 pencil beams and 2 fogs. The pencils were aimed for lighting beyond the hi beam pattern, and the fogs were set up between hi and lowbeam. I never ran the fogs and pencil beams together, never had the need, and I've seen people forget to turn one bank of lights off and blind oncoming drivers.
