JL Wrangler Bracket Setup Illuminates the Darkest of Corners

By -

Easy-to-install light mounts for 2018 JL Wrangler can host a variety of lighting options.

You just got your new 2018 JL Wrangler from the dealer, and have already gone to work on getting it ready to conquer the tough and rocky trails. You’ve got the skid plates, the big knobby tires and beadlock wheels, the suspension lift kit to accommodate those tires, and even the best Superwinch money can buy to pull you and/or a buddy out of a tough situation. But if that situation is in the dark, you’re going to need more than the stock headlamps to see it through.

Matt Mohl of YouTube channel (and online parts shop) CJ Off-Road has the solution for you: Baja Designs’ Lower A-Pillar Dual Light Mounts. And unlike the lift kit you’re about to install, slapping these mounts on your JL will be a breeze.

According to Mohl, these brackets are made from CNC precision-cut steel, and wear a satin black powder coat. The pair of brackets can each hold a pair of lights, or a single light bar across the hood between them. All that’s needed to get going is a T-30 socket and the removal of the two bolts attaching the cowl panel to the JL on each side.

Once the two pairs of stock bolts are set aside for reinstallation at a later time (if ever), two pairs of spacers are dropped in place before receiving the bolts and brackets for your future light setup. A 10mm socket can then be used to tighten everything up.

After both brackets are installed, it’s only a matter of what lights to use. Big spotlights, small cube LEDs, 40-inch hood lights, the possibilities are practically endless. And for under $100, these brackets are peace of mind when lighting the way upon dark trails and devious troubles with your JL Wrangler.
