Poison Spyder 50" LED Bar Mount Vibration

Hey guys, I have the 50" LED Bar mount with a Rigid 50" E series bar on my Jeep. Since its been installed there is a vibration occurring over 60mph on the freeway. This vibration is coming from the passenger side of the vehicle.

Has anyone seen this issue before?

We have seen something like this before. What the issue was with ours is that the rubber gasket was to long. The air was going between the frame and the mount, hitting the rubber gasket causing it to flop around. On the inside, sounded like a major vibration! Very big pain. When we installed it on our new 4dr, we cut the rubber gaskets way down and it seemed to fix this issue.

Now, we are getting a TON of noise from our stock soft top with the 50". We didnt have that issue on the older 2dr...

Yeah, I know! We found "ours" on the 10hr road trip to Jeep Beach last year at 2am! That will keep you up on the interstate!

Hey, at least it kept you awake. When I reinstall mine I plan on using adhesive to attach the liner to the mounts but I am going to cut it so just the major pieces are in contact. The leftover space will be used to run the wiring under the mount.

Now onto a relevant question, single or double row? My single row has noticeable road noise at highway/interstate speed. Happened with both the factory soft top and trek top. Wiring is on the driver side on mine.

If it's a whining noise you can take about 2 inches of silicone in each of the heat sink gaps on both sides and it will go away. You will still have some noise but no whine.

I've had to add some foam strips to my soft top on my four door. If you look there's a tab that rest on the soft top frame. It vibrates and rattles around 55+. Some weatherstripping made it go away.

Yeah that will for sure keep you awake!

Mine is a E series so its a double row. I get that whine if I angle my LED into a certain position. If I point it slightly down from that position where it whine's the whine will go away. I too have the power cable on the drivers side.

I had a hell of a noise coming off my light bar with the PSC mounts kinda like a whisle that would change pich at different speeds and found the fix was a cpl of strips of electrical tape wraped from the top fin to the bottom fin eliminated the noise!
