Re: Rola Rack Options

I don't care for lights on racks too much. If was going to add lights, they'd be hidden.

Re: Rola Rack Options

You'll have to post some pictures when you get them installed! Also what lights are most guys running for this rack? Where do you run the wires? Down the back in the tailgate area or in the doors?

Re: Rola Rack Options

Just got my rack today. I'm thinking of welding it together instead of the 4 screws that hold it on. Figure I'll wait until I have some time to fab light mounts. What kind of lights are you guys running

Re: Rola Rack Options

Re: Rola Rack Options

I'm going to run lights into mine soon, probably all the way around as well. I will most likely use one of the Hella FF series lights since they are small.
http://www.hella.com/MicroSite/offroad/EN/index.html

If I run them all they way around I will fish the wire through the inside of the Rola basket and have a single exit point where it will feed to the inside of the vehicle.

I'm going to weld mine and seal all openings after all of this is done as well. It stores up water then sprays rusty brown junk all over the roof.
