Lightbar?

Has anyone ran across a 3 tab light bar that attaches to the stock front bumber/bar? I got one off EBay a year ago but the design stinks. Looking to upgrade.
I can't mount anything on the top of the machine due to roof clearance in the trailer

Ever think of putting on a folding down light bar on top. Mine folds forward with the removal of 2 bolts. I have also seen a bike rim quick release used before.

I'm not sure about the three tab bumper mount, but UM Racing makes a good one that camps to the cage (Performance Aluminum ATV Products from UM Performance Products). I mounted mine so it's not above the roof of the Teryx.

I ride in a lot of treed trails, and couldn't have mine over the top either. These trails are typically for snowmobiles and ATV's, so the trees hang pretty low for my UTV.

I'll try and post a picture as soon as I figure out how.

I guess I should have included this fact ... I run a soft-top and any of the fold-down type usually mounts to one of the top bars (thus making it impossible to have the top on. I'm not keen on having the ones that mount to the front of the cage as I'm pretty tall and don't want anything interfering with my vision. I'm pretty much set on a front bumper type mount

Point taken. Just FYI though, I'm not too short either, and the bar doesn't impair vision what so ever.

Just thought I'd try and offer an option you may not have thought of.

Good luck.

I think ebay sells two or three light bar kits for the Teryx. I know I have seen them.

Actually the one I have is off Ebay. Please be careful of these. The mount is very weak and for some reason the light tabs are on the front rather than the top. This may sound minor but it completely takes out any ability to adjust the lights up and the angle is maxed out. This is the bar I'm junking if I can find a better one.
