Hey everyone,

I am looking into getting a 50" LED bar to go across my roof, but there are no mounting brackets to be found. The only option I have come across is getting a CARR light bar and a gutterless mounting bracket, but I'd rather have the LED bar and brackets w/o a light bar on my roof.

Does anyone know of someone who makes a kit for a 3rd gen dakota? I probably could make one if it comes down to it.

Thanks for the help

Not for a Dakota. No one makes one.

sorry i must be thinking of something else. i thought they were all pretty universal and come with two "L" mounting brackets.

You are right about that, but I don't want to bolt them directly to my roof. What I'm looking for is a mounting kit that attaches to the inside of my door near the top of the windshield.

After scouring the Internet I am confident that I have come to a dead end. I see that there are 2 hex screws in the exact spot I'm talking about but no one makes a kit. I may just have someone make one for me or get threaded magnets.

Hopefully so. I have looked at it and I might just get a 90 degree bracket at Lowe's and attach it to the mounts already on the bar and then attach it to the screws in the door if that will work.

Thanks man! If I'm driving down a bumpy road with it on it will jiggle a little, but that's expected for any bar that's suspended like this. All in all it is very sturdy and the mount just cost me $10 plus a few dremel cutting wheels...

Sorry for commenting on such an old thread, not sure if it'll get a response but it's worth a shot:

What all did you buy to make the mount?

led light bar mount

Has ANYONE found ANYTHING to mount an LED light bar to a Dakota? I see some have made their own from various items but I would like to get one from a company or something. Anything out there? even a universal mount!!
