Alright, you all asked for it so here it is. We modified our exisiting light bar so you can now fit it in the garage but it still maintains the protection we originally built it for. It comes predrilled for up to 7 lights, depending on your needs.

It's in production now and ships within 1 - 2 weeks depending on whether you want the hinges and lights with it.

Let me know what you think!

I think it looks good, but what about those running the windshield mounted lights? Is there an adapter piece to mount those? If not, it might be something to think about making.

cant you just put some spacers in the snorkel or something? I plan on getting the river raider snorkel and I know I'll have to get creative to get it to fit around my skybar.

no real way to space it, its all one solid piece from the airbox to the top.
If you spaced it out then it wouldnt reach the airbox
the passenger side bar on the lightbar would have to tuck in a little or something

It does give you added protection to the windshield frame. Some customers are using it for extra crash protection.

I haven't had to install a light bar to work with an AEV snorkel so I can't tell you whether it would work or not. What I've seen of the AEV and how it attaches to the windshield frame I would say it would not work without modifications.

It is $259.00 plus shipping and the hinges are an extra $100. You can send us your hinges and it is no charge or send us your hinges after you receive the light bar and we will refund you the $100 or give you credit for future work / items.

FWIW...

I already scouted the snorkel vs. skybar route and found (looking at Billy's aka 72jeeper's) rig that the river raider snorkel has some wiggle room and could be easily modified to fit around a skybar. I understand you already have the other snorkel - just throwing that out there for anyone interested in having their cake and eating it too.

Hitmoney, I have one of these bars installed on my jeep. It is one of the units with the desert runner buggy type protection for the top side mounted lights.

I have been looking at getting the same snorkel and I think that it will clear. The light bar is pretty much flush with the edge of the windshield frame and is extended out over an inch away from the frame. The only clearance issue I think would be with the pre-filter option (which you don't have).

I am not a camera guru, but I'm sure my wife can figure out how to take some close ups if you like and send any specific photos you need to figure it out.

I will donate my old hinges to the project if you are interested. They are just collecting dust right now and will probably stay that way. I would love to see one of KMA's bars on your rig.

We would love the opportunity to mount that light to our light bar, I think it would work fine and be the best option. But I agree, real expensive for the light.

Mounting for mirrors for those of us that wanna go doorless but are required by law to have the mirrors...and lastly I would love to see a pic of this bar with lights mounted under and over on the bar at the same time. That would look pretty sweet and put out more light. Really though I am looking for that all in one light bar. I see the tabs for lights where it mounts below the windshield which is great but maybe an option for adding the mirror relocation brackets would be nice.

We can add mirror brackets, we would ask that you find the mirror you wanted to use, we have built a couple with after market small mirrors that worked out very nice.

The light bar for a 50" LED is $299. We would need you to send us the light being they all mount differently. At this prices we also need you to send us your stock windshield brackets. If you would like us to provide new windshield brackets there would be an additional $100 charge bringing the total to $399 + shipping.

Sorry for the delay, but the bar just got here Thursday and the lights came back on Friday. This is due to the weather and the UPS delivery schedule. The delay in shipping had nothing to do with KMA as they shipped it out when promised. Anyhow, I did the test fit for my new light bar tonight and it fits perfectly. This thing is extremely solid and will protect the light and the windshield really well. Here are a few quick pictures of the bar installed. The lights are in the brackets, but are not tightened up in these pictures. The bar will go to the paint shop this week and then we'll do the final install. Thanks for a great product KMA!!

When you get a chance, could you take a couple more pics of the WS lights? And perhaps one from the inside looking out? I'm still hesitant on putting anything bigger than 4" on the WS... Otherwise looks great!

Hot Duck
03-30-2010, 11:28 PM
Here is the front looking out. Without the LED bar mounted you cannot see the KMA light bar at all while driving. With the LED mounted it is actually like having a sun visor, hanging down almost to where the rear view mirror mounts at the top of the windshield. It's not too bad, but between the sport cage and the light, the windshield is starting to get a little skinny!

As for the round HIDs, these are also quite visible through the windshield, but they do not create a problem. Keep in mind that these lights are mounted quite a bit further inward and are also a little higher than they would be on a regular windshield mount.

I am going to color match it, but I was trying to finish my flat fenders so I could have the paint shop shoot it all at the same time. To make a long story short I gave up hope for these fenders last week so KMA is building a new set for me right now.

KMA is also building a new hoop to replace the current one on my front bumper so that I can mount the 18" LED between the bottom of the hoop and the top of the winch. The new hoop will be about 3 1/2" taller than the current hoop.

Since I was on such a roll this week I also sent my tube doors to KMA to have them skinned. These projects should keep them busy for a few days :D. Looking at the light bar they built, I have no doubt that they will do a good job with these new projects as well.

Very nice work. Would you consider making a light bar that would replace the light bar on my GOBI ranger rack with quick discos? I love the GOBI rack, but the light bar is very simple looking and doesn't provide a good mounting location for lights. I want to run an led light bar or some 6" PIAAs. Let me know what you think.

Scott... any chance you would be up for this?

I asked them to built this light bar even with the top of the windshield, but they can build it taller or shorter to fit your needs. The light bars on their web page are the basic designs, but they will do custom work and can alter them as needed.

Right on, thats perfect and exactly what I want too:bounce:

Definitely, even my local fab shop was impressed with it. When they get my jeep off the lift and I can get some good measurements (I have a different snorkel) I'll give you guys a shout

Here is the final pics of the completed light bar. As you can see we added some extra tubing to protect the lights. Let me know what you think!!

Thanks!

Do you know what lights these are? The lights on the green jeep.(pics didn't show up in the quote)

I believe those are the Hella's but we can build them for what ever you would like to run.

We are trying to come up with another mounting option as we are not comfortable just screwing into the sheet metal. We will see what we can come up with.

low hanging trees here in kansas and missouri. so no 7" lights up top. im not into baja...yet

went with delta xenon lights all around (spots are halogen) anyway here is the top windshield light bar...easy to install, aluminum, keeps everything tidy...

You guys really want a light bar mounted only on the sheet metal? I'm working on a coin die to press heavy steel into the shape of the windshield but its not cheap. Thanks it will come.

Scott, have you guys built one of these yet to sit just a tad higher? This low profile looks great!!! Is it possible to keep this bar sitting only a couple inches higher that the windhshield glass and not see the bar too much from the inside?

My other question is related to glare off the winshield. how much do you get?

stralph
06-15-2010, 11:20 PM
We are a custom shop so we can build it however you would like. We have built them higher. We have had standard lights on our light bar and the glare wasn't bad at all but feel free to pm someone with the led light bar and see what they think.

We also carry some LED lightbars so feel free to pm us for pricing.

Thanks,

If I may chime in on the glare question; I've got (5) 8" HID's on my KMA Fab'd bar and the glare is not bad at all. I've built two of these light bars the same way and one was on a silver JK and the other on a black JK and both had minimal glare off the hood.
