Hey everyone it’s been a minute since I’ve posted here. Having a bronco is so much fun and to be honest I’ve been so busy driving it on the trials and having fun doing other things that I hardly come on anymore. But I decided to post this just in case if anyone else planned on installing this light bar from Baja designs.

this was a super easy install and it took maybe about an hour to do it. The “hardest” part of the install is mounting the brackets on the lights and making sure the lights aren’t pointing in the air. Wiring was super easy with the aux switches. Just ran the upfitter wire that came with the kit across the back of the grille and up into the engine bay to the aux wiring. Did the regular wiring stuff and boom they worked like a charm. I hooked mine to aux 2 and that’s what they recommend in the instructions. I’ll post some pics below and if you have questions feel free to ask. Thanks

I attached another photo of what the front camera looks like with the light bar. As well the mounting pics on the bumper

i decided to switch some of the lenses out today. Love how you can change the lenses on these lights anytime you want. I changed the wide cornering and the driving combo lenses to amber. I think it looks better then before. Plus I will be installing the cowl mounted pod lights today as well. Those will be amber light too! Posting pics below!

another update: the squadron pro pod lights are mounted and are amazing! Love these things! They give off tons of light! Super easy install. The hardest part when running the wire harness under the plastic trim by the windshield but once you got it it was easy the rest of the way. Once again if there are any questions ask away

Yeah there is a little bit but its at the very bottom of the screen and is not even close to what the winch does with blocking the camera.

Looks like there's different kinds of reflectors in the different pods. Is that customizable? Do you have any beam shots at night?
I didnt get any pics yet of night time but each pod light is different. The center 2 are spots and the rest are a mix of driving/fog combo and the end pods are for wide cornering

How well do they work at night on a dark paved/dirt road?
I was thinking.........they do look good, but I like them embedded in the bumper. The day I go to change the oil or mess around in the eng compartment.........TOO MANY foot holds/rests and leverage stands to get broken. Also-- to your point, wheeling on dirt roads following people, really need fog lights too.

Patience: there will be some super cool after market stuff coming out in due time. As a PRIO99 I have demonstrated patience!!!

Can you get a picture of the front camera view on the screen for us? Just curious how it looks.
This looks amazing!

I love those. I’m so cheap, I’m waiting for some cheap knockoffs to buy.

Does the main bracket mount use pre existing holes on the bumper?
