    Light mount alternatives

    Lucky8's light mounts are "no cut", which is what I would demand from any mount I would consider, but are there any alternatives to Lucky8's light mounts for two extra lights?

    I want to mount two 6" Baja Design LP6 Pro's, but Lucky8 wrote and told me they have a 2 month backlog on their mounts... Tis is (not) the season - to wait Wink

    Any suggestions?

    I would disagree about them being “no cut”. I had to open up one of the grill openings for each light mount in order to pass the end of my lights connectors through the grill, as the openings in the grill are too small. I just mounted their sliders and would post pics, but continue to encounter errors regarding “adding to gallery “ on the website.

    Thanks for sharing! Good to know.
    Started looking closer at one of the pictures of their car and it almost looks like the grill bulges a bit where the mounts come out. Is that the case?

    Would also love to see pictures and hear about how you experience their sliders.

    No bulging of grill, light mounts are really well designed considering how unfriendly recent Rovers are to modify. I guess if one was willing to cut and splice the wiring loom, it would truly be plug and play. I have a post on here, showing install pics for lights. Sliders are well made, but had to drill out sliders mounting points to get enough “wiggle “ room to mount, the outboard bottom of the truck isn’t truly straight I don’t think and the slider is.

    Good post. They look well made. Sliders... seems Reul Parts in Belgium are working on something. They posted a picture of a disco5 full of scanning dots so they’ll probably have the info to make one that fits perfect.

    Regarding this, this might be due to your pictures are too large. I had the same issue with the last photos I posted, I reduced them to around 2Mb and was able to upload them ok. Give it a try.

    Am having issues with photos uploading, even though taken on my phone. Having to what's app them to my works phone number, and sending from there, or what's app back to my main phone, and sending from there. Uploads virtually instantly. Possibly due to the fact it's a 23mp camera, but still the photos I upload look blurry.
    Far easier and quicker than compressing image size etc.

    That works because WhatsApp is reducing the image quality for you.

    Ah ok, I assumed it was compressing it .
    Are you having a similar issue Jimbg?

    Just tried uploading slider pics, and chose “small” option that iPad, offered. Still no joy.

    There is a company here in Oz - in Perth - who make a light mount:
