    M̶A̶D̶-M̶A̶X̶ Chrysler 300c: 20,000 lumens & a roof basket

    Some new additions to the car… Probably not the ideal vehicle for this setup, but it prevents me from needing a truck/jeep.
    I needed a spot for surfboards and other oversized miscellaneous gear, and recently pulled the trigger on some roof rails for the Chrysler. I already had the basket sitting around, so combine the two and the result is in the photos. The light bar might have been unnecessary/overkill….but the more I use it, the more I like it. Never have I felt more comfortable driving at speed down empty backroads. Deer eyes glow from a quarter mile out with plenty of time to slow down….
    Details:
    Roof-Rails: door mounted rails with custom install of wire with turnbuckle between front door mounts, running over the basket rails. This was probably unnecessary, but it eliminates any risk of the rails loosening and potentially flying off. If I could redo this project, I would just drill into the roof for a permanent setup, never have fear of them loosening.
    Basket: standard Thule product, great quality, no issues. My personal favourite basket on this car because it follows the contour of the vehicle. Tapers off on both ends and looks better than a brick up top…
    Light Bar: Halo/Spot combo light bar ~35 inches No drilling inside the vehicle for switches. Halo feature is wired directly into the fog light switch, Spot feature is on a wireless controller. This is a true spot light bar. Not one of these BS chinese combo’s that spews light everywhere. Directs light much further and much more focused than most, and has sharp cutoffs preventing it from bothering oncoming traffic unless directly in front of me (and no I don’t use it when traffic is around, but even the most remote roads have a car here and there. Light bar is shutoff when oncoming traffic is noticed) All wiring fit perfect running under the black plastic strips around the windshield, and all relays are bolted to an empty mount near the battery that the police chargers use for their wiring. Very clean wiring, looks stock... if light bars were such an option.

    Overall it came out better than I thought. The light bar has proven to be more useful than expected. Entitled pricks blocking the left hand lane seem to actually move when flashed by it…

    That's an interesting look for the 300c and definitely functional! Your's is a fantastic looking example and I like the later gen wheels on it!

    Wasn’t built to be liked as much as functional. At the very least it takes away the inclination to think it’s another getto 300c, an unfortunate forethought these days when you see chrome wheels on a Chrysler....
