So I am still considering a LED light bar to fill the gap on my roof rack. Only thinking one of those cheap bars you see on ebay from £29 to £60 depending upon wattage and bar size. My thoughts are to run the cable through a carefully positioned hole in the ariel mount and down inside the A pillar.
Now I don't know if there will be enough room in the A pillar with the ariel coxial cable, or if its even possible to drill a hole in the ariel mount. But if it is then the thickness of the LED light bar supply cable is gojng to be an important factor.

So if you have a light bar can you measure how thick the supply cable is and give me an idea of your bars wattage?

As a side question is any room available in the A pillar as I have yet to remove my ariel and take a look. Mad idea or may be possible?

Thanks

Mike

The feed cable on mine is approximately what I would call 10 amp power cable or heavy speaker cable, about 3mm by 6mm with the insulation. Not huge by any means.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Thats interesting, I had assumed the cable would be a round profile like a power cable flex. Simply as round is easy to make a water tight seal at the light body. Thanks for that.
Is this common or any round cables out in LED land?

Interested in this too. I want a big bar on my roof rack too, I have considered fitting a snorkel (for no other reason than I like the look) and running the cable externally down the side of the snorkel at the windscreen side and into the engine bay via the wiper scuttle panel.

That's how I done mine ;)
