It's already in OC...had it trucked down. Appreciate the offer but you're a little too far away. :-)
Tell him to drive down here and I'll do it

So is the generally accepted procedure to spot weld the lights and the roof rack this way? Seems simple enough.Next question, the rack on this vehicle is about half the size of the roof and easily slides back and forth. I am thinking I should slide it forward when going offroad but maybe having them far forward isn't the best idea. Here is where the basket rests now. The second pic shows the light bar resting on it.
You just grind off the weld it isn't difficult.

Yes, you just grind the tack and unscrew the nut. Fortunately, as you unscrew the nut, the nut acts as a thread chaser and helps clean them up. Also, you just want to put a small tack on the nut to the bolt. No need to get carried away. If being a former union ironworker taught me anything it is that you'd be surprised how strong a good tack weld is. I think jawbreaker has the right idea too. Seems that if the lights are mounted forward, you would have more of the beam shining forward and less of the beam shining on the roof.
Whaddaya do when you need to remove em later if they are welded?

I'ld say drive up here and I'll do it, but I doubt they will!
I need someone to install some offroad lights on Braz's jeep...anybody know where i can get this done? The places I have called won't do it unless I buy the lights from them...I saved $400+ buying em on craigslist but need an installer. I am not a handy guy with tools...don't suggest I do it myself okay? Not my forte.
