Default Cargo Rack with Baja Style Lights?

Does anyone have a cargo rack on thier Xb with BAJA style or PIAA lights?

ive been thinking of getting a cargo rack, a nice tubular tub style(might have to make my own) and ive been thinking that some BAJA/PIAA style lights would look great on the Xb, maybe not as huge as some of the true baja racers use, but maybe something more slimline, but im not leaving out the idea of having the bigger style either.

im interested if anyone has any good photos of either a tubular frame tub type of rack like below for the xb


or simply one with just the lights for some ideas.



if not i guess ill just have dust off the tube bender and make it myself. maybe i can get the mounts from an existing roof rack and modify them. anyone have pictures of the mounting points for thier cargo/roof racks?

**UPDATE**
I found some pics for the idea of what i had in mind. i was thinking of something low profile, with smaller lights possibly recessed into the wind gaurd.

You'll need to up the amperage output of your alternator to comp for the light consumption.

Yeah but he does not have lights on top does he? I think that a warrior rack with 4 lights would work best!

yeah i was thinking possibly of the slim bar lights, or possibly some smaller circle ones.

i dont want to drill or weld to the roof so i was hoping to see how the yakima or thule or other racks mounted to the roof, almost looks like some sort of mix between a friction mount and a clamp style deal. i could make the rack no problem which would save a couple hundred, but those mounts are hella expensive!!!

so im trying to figure out alternative options. but its not looking good so far.

it would be nice to have a place to throw some of the camping stuff instead of throwing them on my jetski trailer or ruining my interior with stuff like wet wetsuits and life jackets, or the sandy stuff from pismo and for my atv.

You wanted to know howthe Yak mounts, here you gooooo. If you go with the Yakima Load Warrior or Mega Warrior for can get accessory light brackets. I use the Load Warrior in the winter for all the snow board gear, I have the brackets, then modifyied using alum. angle to make a bracket to hold 4 lights instead of just two. Nice because I can light up the side of a hill for those midnight runs, or you can ____ off and blind the guy that just cut you off.

I have 4 100watt light on the front of my xB, no lightbar on to, just a brushguard on the bumper as stated earlier. You dont need a differ altenator, but when they are on, you MPG go down.
