Always liked the look of the LR Defender roof light. Wonder how these would look on the R1. Thoughts?

They are ok, but it is unlikely that they will mold one for the R1's. The demand just wouldn't pencil. If you are interested, I added a light bar to my front cargo bar. Top of it sits just below so I can still use the bar.

Nice setup! How’d you handle the wiring and switch? It does seem your crossbar has now become a permanent fixture.

The cable fit very nicely in the slot next to the windshield. Then I just pathed it thru gaps in the plastics to behind the frunk where the 12v batteries are. I have a wireless switch under the with a fob switch inside the cab.

Yes, that's the one !
How did you mount the light bar to the crossbar? Do you have a link or is the mount custom made?

Also did you have to run a wire into the interior or just have a wireless go controller?

I made the bracket to mount them, that you see in my photos. I own a metal shop and can make sets for anyone that wants them.

As for the wiring, I ran it down the edge of the windshield (tucks in there very nicely) then routed it under the plastics to where the 12v battery area is. I used a wireless switch in there so there was no having to

Nice! Do you have a link for the wireless switch or any info for the install?
I would definitely be interested in the metal. I’ll shoot over a dm!

This is my "work in progress" setup. Unfortunately didn't have much time to finish the wiring, but my plan is to tuck wires in the panel gaps, and use wireless switch as well.

The idea is to mount them during off road trips, and remove during everyday driving...

Nice. I ran the 9-light KC Pro Gravity on my Raptor and loved it. The wind noise sucked, but it was worth it. I’d hopped to do something similar on the R1T. Unfortunately, the hit to aero running them all the time would suck (on top of the wind noise). Will follow to see how you handle quick disconnect and using the load bar for mount/dismount as needed.

Looks amazing. I might buy that light bar. Do you have any glare in the car itself when they are on? OR is it far enough forward that it doesnt come in the sunroof?
