Brawler bar and duallys?

Ok so I have the PSC BFH with brawler bar and I just mounted my duallys I got for Xmas, I am using PSC flairlead mount and I noticed that the brawler bar is blocking almost a full led. I then mounted the light on the underside of the mount and added two washers to drop the light down, now I can see a huge difference in the amount of light in front of the jeep, so I am wondering if anyone else has ran into this problem if so what was your solution? Thanks in advanced

I had this issue! I gave the fairlead mount away and drilled two holes in my roller fairlead. Flipped the adjustment piece to get the duallys to sit as low as possible, then bolted them on. It's still not perfect, but works until I buy the 70 buck bar attachment things. Pretty expensive IMO for two mounting clips.

Are you cable or syn?

I have a syth line so drilling through the aluminum farilead isnt gonna happen, i thought about the clamps on the bar but i spent 50 bucks on the light mount so that would suck just to throw that money away. But the way i added washers to bottom has seemed to help it is not perfect but it is much better then what it was, thanks for the imput guys

I just checked and it is NOT the bracket for the light bar it is the right mount for the lights. But I can post up a pic tomorrow to show you guys what I am working with.

And my synth line will be in soon i noticed when i took off the steel cable there a bunch of scratches on the drum are you guys sanding it or just putting the synth line over it? Thanks again for all your help.

Can you lower the Dually's on their mounts any? Somehow they look a little high, but then again maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me.

i dont believe so the only way i have figured out how to lower them is to add the washer(s) between the mounts and the light mount i am gonna add one or two more today and see if that lowers the lights enough to clear the bar we will see.

Looking at your Brawler Bar... the distance between the bumper and the hightest part of the bar, seems lower than mine. Mine goes almost to the top of the grill. I've had mine about a 1 1/2 now... that might be why.

I believe the BFH's brawler bar is lower than the Brawler Lite's Brawler bar.
