52" led light bar roof install and 4" lights on rear

Just finished installing a 52" light bar on top of the roof and two 4" led lights on the back tubing that the headrest are on. I have to start by saying this wasn't easy like I thought it was going to be. The light bars support brackets were to short since the roof slopes down on the edges. After fabricating some 1" steel shims and not liking the way it looked I went to fastenal and bought some 1/4" washers and used three of them to shim under the brackets then I used two more between the roof and the roll cage. I drilled a 5/16 hole through the roof and top roll tube then replaced the bolt they sent me with a Alan head 4 1/2" bolt and used a nylon nut to secure it. The 4" lights on the back were a lot easier I just replaced the bolt they sent with a longer one and drilled a 5/16 hole then bolted them on. I ran all the wiring inside the roll cage tubing and used 1/2" braided wire loom tubing anywhere wires would be exposed. Then wired them into the rocker switches I had previously installed when I added the stereo. If anyone has any questions about anything I have posted please feel free to ask. Thanks to everyone else on here for there advise and ideas also.

Finally had a chance to take it out at night and see how much the lights made a difference!

Nice work man! I just got my 2014 Viking a few weeks ago and this is going to be my first project. Could you answer a couple questions I've got about the process?

How hard was is to pull the wires in the frame, and how do you mount that wire loom so it stays in place? Did you use the Viking battery or do you have a secondary power source? I'm looking at Nilight lights and wiring harnesses. Looks like that may be what you used as well. Hopefully mine comes out as well as yours!
