Default 4X4 LIGHTS HELP!!

Hi I have a 1997 chevy blazer with a sun roof, and i have a stock roof rack, i am wondering if i got lights drilled on it if that would work? or would i have to get a bar, im hoping I dont have 2 get a bar and can just put them on roof rack, please help!

You can drill into the stock rack and wire it up just fine! The problem with doing that is that for most lights, the stock cross bar is too far back to effectively aim the light beam. Check out kiwiblazer...he modded his stock rack to let the crossbar move farther forward for better placement. But there are plenty of blazers on here with lights on the stock rack in stock position.

Side blinkers are mandatoryin Europe. My Blazer is exJapan. It came with ugly orange ones - see pic (all GMvehicles I've seen including a cadillac had these same lights)
I didn't like them & bought a pairofside lightsfor a VW Golf. A bit of dremel work & much nicer. (the bulb is orange/amber)
