Rigid RDS 30"

So, I pulled the trigger and bought a Rigid 30" RDS for good price. Why? Because 1.) Made in America. 2.) Longevity 3.) Performance. Those being my top 3 reasons. This is the exact light bar BDS used in its build. One problem I just noticed when I was about to buy the RC bumper mounts. The Rigid has a 2 bolt mounting system, whereas most have only 1 on each side.

RDS-Series 30" - Spot Surface Cool White Black... | Rigid Industries For reference.


Does anyone happen to know if the RC mount will still work, or another company? OR will I need to do some jerry-rigging with some L brackets...Thanks for the help!

Forgot to mention. Rigid does produce a mount, but by the looks of their ad pictures, its for a single row. "Fits 30" SR-Series."

If anyone has personal experience, that'd be great. Otherwise I'll have to wait until Monday to give them a call.

Check out a YouTube vid by @lusid , using that RC bumper mount, but different bar. That mount is sweet.

The mount does look sweet and quality. However, the Rigid RDS lights have TWO mounting locations on each side of the light, where most of these mounts have only one hole. So im not sure if 1 hole will suffice, or if the mount will even fit. May have to jerry rig something with L brackets :( -____-

JayBee, just a FYI - my black oak had 2 points to mount, i just tightned the main bolt and it holds fine. Hasn't moved since I tightened the bolt.

This is what I'm referring to. There is both an UPPER and LOWER mounting bolt to the side brackets. Im wondering if the RC single row mount will match the 2 row on either the bottom or upper mounting location, or if Ill need to use some L brackets and jerry rig something. @lusid
