Normal snail like progress, but ive now fitted a springer cb aerial to the central mounting point.

Need to get the cable inside, but it looks better than the magmount. Need to check the groundplane is ok and swr it in, would like it a bit shorter if poss.

I'm always concerned about exposing roof mounted lights to tree branches and the like. Many of my trails are overgrown with overhanging branches. I could mount a light bar between the two horizontal ARB rack horizontals, but it would have to be set back a little to offer better protection.

I'm sure if I had a snorkel, I'd end up ripping it off :lol: Anyway, rarely do any wading at depth, so that's not a likely mod for me.

Nice looking bar though, neat and tidy :thumbup:

Hi,

No need to drill holes.

I brought the wires down alongside the snorkel, using some flexible conduit, then ran them into the engine bay through a panel gap.

If you dont have a snorkel, run them down the lip on the doorframe, then through the panel gap (photo shows my cb aerial) and either in to car or in to engine bay.
