I had mine modified the way Jefe did for quite some time, it was a little flimsy and impossible to keep the lights aimed becaus eyou could only torque them down so much (and that wasn't much) .
I got a conferr roof rack which uses the same tracks as the stock roof rack so no drilling there, though I did drill holes to run the wires through. If you don't want to drill holes for the wiring you can either runt hem through a door (looks like crap but gets the job done) or you can runt hem back to the tailgate and down through there (also doesn't look that great as well as uses about an extra 15' of wire which reduces the power to the lights)
Wow, old post... but yea, I just took the cross piece off and brought it into the house. Lined up the lights how I wanted them and then marked and drilled. You can't tell from the pic, but I also put washers on the bottom to help. The cross bar squeezed together and that was that. Still got them up there.
