    Default Wheeler Fabrication 50" Lightbar Brackets w/install

    Here is my review of the Wheeler Fabrication 50" Lightbar Brackets. They are very nicely made and seem like the best designed brackets I've seen to date.
    Here is what comes in the package.
    Brackets, self taping screws, rubber washers, and instructions.

    Most people could probably install without the instructions, but the ones provided are great and include clear pictures.
    The only stuff needed, that didnt come in the package are: Your choice of sandpaper (the come primed), paint, and a 3/16 drill bit to make the self tapers easier.

    Here they are sanded down.

    Then painted (satin black)

    The instructions tell you to measure down 1/4" from the gutter to mount the bracket, im lazy so I just used the end of a driver bit to set the gap.

    Then while holding the bracket up there, drill the top hole with a 3/16 bit and then secure using the supplied self taping screws. From there do the bottom, then the middle ones.
    Here they are installed.


    Then just install your 50" lightbar, making sure to use the supplied rubber washers between the lightbar and the brackets.




    All in all a very good product at a reasonable price. And if you have full doors, this is the most secured bracket system I have seen.

    Those look nice.. Seems like a pretty simple and straight forward install... And they look much better with your modification Jim!!
