Where are you guys getting brackets/tabs to mount lights on your racks? I'd like to remove my Hella 1000's from my rack and move them to the front bumper then install my 4000's up on the rack. Problem is the current tabs on the rack won't work with the 4000's anybody have a link to brackets etc I could use with a brownchruch rack? Thanks in advance
Nick

The mounting bolts on the 1000's can rotate where the 4000's bolt only goes down and the way the mounts are on the rack the 4000's wont bolt on right. Its hard to explain I guess. I guess I could just make a mount If I have to. I think the mounts on the rack now may be homemade, they just wrap around the rack. Im taking the rack down this weekend so I will post up pics of what I mean. Tried to find universal type mounts but didn't have much luck.

Yea short piece of angle iron with holes on it already. You could make tons of little mounts

That's a brownchurch, right? I'm not sure if anyone makes a bracket for them. You can pick us a set of tabs, and have them tacked on cheaply enough.

The rack is both round and square but the part I would prob mount to would be the round ones. I just think the 4000's are to big and heavy for the rack. I got a L bracket and mounted them but they just bounced up and down. Going to put them on the front bumper whenever I can get it back from Jake.
I already got the switch for them mounted and ready to go.
