    Does anybody have one of the CARR light bars? Likes and dislikes? How about the CARR Rota-light bars? Likes and dislikes? I like the looks of one of the CARR light bars cause it hugs the top pretty close it looks like in the pictures. I don't know how the rota kit works and weather it would be more of a pain or not?



    Thanks, (in advance)

    I'm considering one.... I like the idea of the rota if trees are hanging low... just have to get paid now and then I will decide!

  3. I have a Carr lightbar on my Burb, the conventional kind and it looks great and serves its purpose well. Sucks in the trees, but what doesn't when you're 8 1/2 feet tall?

    does the Rota turn backwards, all of the pics that I have seen have it turned forwrds? I haven't ever seen one other then in pictures though. If it does I think that may be the way I go too.

    They turn backward and forward (atleast the ones for Jeeps do)

    I had a regular one. It served it's purpose, I just got tired of it after a while and took it off. My BIG dislike was that A) it was hard to keep tight and B) since it was hard to keep tight, it rubbed the paint off and started some surface rust on my drip rails.

    Like I said, it's in the attic now though

    I had one. I liked it. The only reason I dont have it anymore is that it got ripped off when I rolled my Jimmy. I will not put one back on though. The light bolts poked through the roof, and the bar damaged the roof pretty bad.
