Bumper mount will be easier with a front grill guard but depending upon your jurisdiction they may need to be covered. I’ve mounted a light bar behind the grill on a non-Jeep. The bonus is it’s hidden from theft and the local DMV. I like the light bars from Quadratec J-series for the price, quality and range of sizes. The unique part is the 3 to 5 amber lights built-in that can be functional 24/7 versus the off-road use only light bar beams. I have the 17” and 28”

    Big complaint with lightbars above the windshield is whistling. There are ways to try and deal with the noise from putting pieces of rubber hose in the cooling fins to a plastic cover such as AeroLidz.
