    I want to add 5 light bars to my pioneer 1000-5. I would like to have 2 in the front ie roof and bumper and one for each side and rear all controlled by switches.

    Does anyone have experience with this?

    Do i need to get a extra battery?

    Do i need to update the alternator so that it charges both batteries if 2 is necessary?

    Any simple stereo recommendations that work off blue tooth?

    I know that i will need relays but not sure what the best way is to go about planning this project. I dont have any plans for winches so it will mainly be for light bars and eventually a simple stereo that can be used with blue tooth. Please let me know if you have any experience with this and can show pictures or lead me in the right direction. Thanks in advance

    I am currently running 2 flood cubes on the a pillar, 12" spot/flood combo on the bumper, 2 flood cubes on the rear & 6 speaker wet sounds bar with no extra battery and everything is working well.

    you have a photo of the mounts you used for the A pillar cubes? did you purchase them, if so, from where? or did you fab them yourself? cubes are the way I want to go but I cant seem to find any brackets.

    I used factory mounts to the fender mount, I just used a longer bolt.

    I dont have a windshield and used 1.75 inch brackets to mount the light pods ie cubes. Here is the link

    A Pillar Light Mount

    I chose the 1.75inch size and they fit perfect. I am not sure if they will work for you because you have a windshield. I hope that helps.
