Wrangler RedRock 4×4 Dual Vertical Windshield Light Mount Brackets (2007-2017 JK) Review & Install

I’m Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this
is my review and installation of the RedRock 4×4 Dual Windshield LED Light Mount Bracket,
fitting all 2007 and up JKs. Today we’re gonna walk through the installation
of this bracket, which is a very simple one out of three wrenches, because this is designed
to bolt directly on to the Jeep, without any permanent modification, using your factory
windshield hinge hardware. We’re also going to talk about the construction
and a few other features of these brackets. A bracket like this is gonna be for those
of you who want to mount a light on your A-pillar, but not just one light, two on either side. Now, having two lights on either side does
give you a lot of flexibility. You can have two different beam patterns,
one’s a flood, one’s a spot. You can have them different colors. One can be white, and one can be yellow, which
is a look I really like. You can have them switched independently,
of course. You can just have a lot of different functionality,
and a lot of different features, if you decide to run two sets of lights on your A-pillar. And these brackets will allow you to do that. These brackets are a little different from
some of the other ones out there on the market. These are going to hold your lights in a way
that you only have a horizontal point of adjustment. You’re not going to be able to aim them left,
right, only up and down, which does limit you a little bit with your options. If you wanted to have a set of floodlights
that are pointed out toward the gutters, and then have a set of spotlights pointed straightforward,
you’re not going to be able to do that with these brackets. There are some other dual light mount brackets
that do use a more traditional single place light mount that will still give that up-down,
and side to side adjustment. This kit is not one of them. Although this kit is also going to be less
expensive than those other ones. So if you’re not going to use that left-right
adjustment, this kit is going to be a perfectly fine option. As far as construction goes, these are these
are steel brackets covered in a textured black powder coat finish. They’re maybe not quite as beefy or as strong
as some of the other ones on the market. They do have a little bit of a flex to them. However, they’re just a light mount bracket. They don’t need to hold a lot of weight, and
the way that these are designed, you actually put the light in between the bracket, and
the light becomes part of the structure of the mount. So everything will certainly be firmed up
once you mount your lights in these brackets. They, again, are designed to bolt on to the
Jeep without any major modification, using all your factory hardware and your factory
mounting locations. So all in all, they’re a simple part, they
look good, and they’ll save you money, over those top quality mounts on the market. To get these installed is a very simple one
out of three-wrench installation. All you’ll need to do is to remove the two
windshield hinge cover bolts from the front of your windshield hinges, put your bracket
in place, and replace those screws. Now, this doesn’t come with any sort of gasket
material to go between your painted surface of your windshield hinges, and your brackets. So you might want to fab something up, cut
a piece of rubber to put it behind there, or put some silicon on the back of this. Let it set up before installing it, if that’s
something that you are concerned about. All in all, the installation of this won’t
take you more than a half an hour, and you won’t need any specialty tools, although you
will need a large torx bit. I’m sure if you’ve done any work on your Jeep,
you have a big torx bit set around, but if this is one of your first mods, you are gonna
need to pick that up. As I said, this is going to be a little less
expensive than some of those top-tier mounts on the market. A dual A-pillar mount from, say, Rigid is
going to be significantly more expensive than this one. It may have some additional features as far
as how you can aim it. However, if you’re just looking for a simple
light mount that’s going to allow you to mount four lights facing forward, this will certainly
save you some money. So, if you’re looking to mount four lights
on your A-pillars, two on either side to allow you to have different beam patterns, different
colors, or just have the lights switch independently, this is going to be an inexpensive way of
getting those lights mounted up. So that’s my review of the RedRock 4×4 Dual
Windshield LED Light Mount Bracket, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right
