Oooof, remind me to never ride in front of you on a night ride!


That's gotta be some serious brightness!

Yeah, we do night runs. Pull all light fuses and max 2 flashlights per rig. But thats in the rocks... Your set up clearly says high speed desert. Baja 1000 maybe?

not if your jeep is there

I hope you have at least 2 batteries and you might want to invest in a higher amp alternator

Call me crazy, but it's a bit gaudy in my opinion. I suppose high speed desert stuff would be great.

The only time I really use my lights is during late night drives in the country. They are really just too bright for anything when traffic is around.

My thoughts exactly. Night runs of rock crawling, all you really need is your headlights, rock lights under the truck, and a reverse spot beam. A bit overkill IMO if you're not in the Baja...

Probably should angle some to the sides, I think you have plenty of forward lighting going on

It just occured to me. For the amount of money invested in all those HIDs, a LED bar could have been purchased that would have been much sleeker looking and would have used less current all while being as bright or brighter. And they are dimmable! Just a thought.

haha love the replies I thought about led but i like alot of circular things haha. Cant wait to finish it with the n-fab lightbar. I also ordered the wild boar grill. Gonna give eyebrows to my boobie headlights. I was going for a totally blacked out look but I have some red under the jeep arb,skid stuff ect so just moving some red uptop. If i decide to go black then it takes nothing to paint them. Theres also another company that makes tinted black covers but so far i like the look

those headlights make it look like the jeep is getting assaulted in the rear.


the above is most likely irrelevant.
