Mark the center point on the rear c-channel cross-member between the risers of the gooseneck.
Mark the center point on the light bar (42" wide) and align light bar in center of cross-member.
Make sure light bar is positioned in desired location. Carefully mark the position of the holes on the light bar on the cross-member.
Using a 3/8" drill bit (or larger), drill two holes through the cross-member on marks made in previous step.
Tip: Use a smaller bit to create "pilot hole" before drilling your final holes.
Place light bar on to cross-member and insert bolts into their holes. Install supplied bolts & washers on each side using 1/2" wrench (Using a ratcheting socket on top bolt and open end wrench on lower nut works best).
Optional: Route wiring inside of conduit gooseneck using an electrician's snake for maximum protection. If you don't have a snake to run the wiring, you can "zip tie" the wiring along the inside frame of the gooseneck.
Pull wire through to junction box and trim at desired length. Splice cable exposing the positive wire (black) and ground wire (white).
Open the junction box by removing two screws with a phillips screwdriver.
Using a 1/4 socket, install white wire (negative) on to blue post (ground). You can add an optional ring terminal for cleanest installation. Install the included short black wire lead with fuse (positive) on to red post (hot).
Trim black wire (positive) from light bar back to desired length in preparation for inline fuse & wire to be installed.
Place inline fuse over wire from light bar, then crimp the fuse holder using pliers.
Replace cover on junction box and hook up trailer to towing vehicle. With the ignition in the towing vehicle on, switch toggle switch to on position to test lights.
