G'day guys
Just wondering if anybody has had problems fitting the lightforce 240's to any bullbars. ie. the lights being too big and not fitting properly. As yet i dont have a bar but a pair of lightforce 240 have come up cheap and i think i might get them and hang onto them till i get a bullbar.
Cheers

I had to make a adaptor to mount mine (2000 gu steel winch bar) that lifted them up and back. I don't like lights to sit proud of the bar! was very easy and took not time at all. Was worth the effort they are the best light I have owned!!

No, Not without the optional spacer (miminal cost). If you look at the schematic of the 240s you can see that the lens is slightly lower than the mount, why ????. However with the spacer, it raises it to the correct height.

What car is it going on? this will show rough size of the bar, and the space you will have.

Goto a 4wd shop and sit a set of lights against the bar you think you will get in the end. See how they look.

You can always weld a few tabs to the bar, and fit them on top.

Hey ruckus,

I put some on my 80 series with the factory bar allumin. bar a couple of months ago. great light but had to drill out the holes to fit the bolt through na d they just fit onder the top bar. They do sit forward slightly 20mm or so but they look good and work a treat especially at straddie last week.

i put them on my 01 hilux with an arb bullbar and they fit ok but they stick out in front of the bullbar by about half an inch(using the inbuilt bullbar mounts)
so if (when) i hit something the lights will be pushed back.... probably breaking the mountings or my front grill, or both... (these were given to me as a gift so i was hardly going to complain about the dimensions!)

all that said.... when i turn them on.... i don't care, i had some cheepo hella's before these and the difference is amazing.

cheers,
