Light Brackets and Mounts

At RealTruck®, we carry a wide selection of auxiliary lighting solutions that significantly bolster your truck, Jeep®, or SUV's light output. However, the lights themselves are only half the battle. You'll also need high-quality light brackets and mounts to complete the installation.  

While most lights include universal mounting tabs and brackets, these products are traditionally flimsy and require significant modifications, like cutting and drilling, to fit your vehicle. Instead, opt for premium, vehicle-specific light and light bar mounts and brackets for a secure, modification-free installation.

Types of Light Mounts and Brackets

There are several off-road light types, including LED light bars, pods, and cubes. While highly versatile, some are better suited for particular mounting locations than others.

Light Bar Mounts

Light bars come in two standard configurations—linkable light bars, like the KC HiLiTES Pro6 50" Roof Mount LED Light Bar, feature multiple smaller LED pods strung side-by-side on a long bracket. Conventional LED light bars, however, feature multiple LED chips within a single alloy housing. Both are available in varying lengths. However, due to their sizable dimensions, they tend to pair best with:

  • Headache Rack Mounts

  • Hood Mounts

  • Roof Mounts

  • Windshield Mounts

  • Universal Brackets

  • Bumper Mounts

Alternatively, most aftermarket bumpers, chase racks, and roll bars feature integrated mounts, like the Addictive Desert Designs Chase Rack.

  • Integrated light mount (lights not included)

  • Optional retractable light mount

  • Limited 5-year warranty for black powder coat finishes

  • Limited lifetime warranty for stainless steel finishes

Cube, Pod, and Round Light

Smaller lights, like cubes, pods, and round housings, are highly compact and versatile. These housings typically feature a single stud for mounting and are best used alongside:

  • Bumper Mounts

  • Roof Mounts

  • Swivel mounts 

  • Fog light mounts

  • Spare tire mounts

  • A-Pillar Mounts

  • ATV/UTV Mounts

Selecting Your Ideal Light Mounts and Brackets

Choosing the proper mounts for your setup can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Consider the following factors when browsing our extensive inventory of light brackets and mounts. 

Mounting Location

What’s your ideal positioning? Consider aesthetics, visibility, glare, and ease of wiring as each comes into play. 

Let’s take two primarily off-road applications, for example, as both likely require significant output. Prerunners, which emphasize long-distance visibility during high-speed desert runs, will likely benefit from higher mounting rather than lower, i.e., roof mounting. 

Alternatively, rock crawlers, which emphasize wide, close-range visibility during low-speed maneuvering, will likely benefit from lower mounting positions, i.e., bumper mounting.


Mounts and brackets come in several finishes, including black powder-coated steel and raw/polished stainless. While both are highly corrosion resistant, they feature opposite aesthetics: Powder-coated black steel offers a stealthy, subtle appearance, while polished stainless is much more vibrant and lustrous.


Installation style and difficulty are both factors to consider when browsing light mounts. At a minimum, you should know which mounting style you prefer, including modification-free clamp-on and bolt-on or universal mounts that typically require drilling.

Vibration Resistance

A critical aspect of any light install is vibration resistance, especially when installing lights with small spreads, like spot pattern pods. If the mount isn’t durable enough or uses too few mounting locations, it will likely result in a vibrating and wiggling beam, especially when driving over rough terrain.
