Light Brackets and Mounts
At RealTruck, we carry a wide variety of auxiliary lighting solutions to significantly bolster your pickup’s light output; however, the lights themselves are only half the battle! You'll also need high-quality light brackets and mounts to complete an 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
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
Cube, Pod, and Round Light Mounts
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:
Fog light mounts
Spare tire 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 browning our extensive inventory of brackets and light mounts.
What’s your ideal positioning? Consider aesthetics, visibility, glare, and ease of wiring, as each of these factors will come into play.
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, as powder-coated black steel offers a stealthy, subtle appearance, and 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.
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.
