So, I really love the look of a Jeep with a lightbar full of cool lights, and a few of the latest posts from the fellas with all these lights has me itching to add more, however this past weeks incident has brought me to the realization that for me they may be useless if not downright dangerous. I don't Baja..
This past summer I splurged and bought a pair of Lightforce 170 Strikers and mounted them on the front grille guard. These suckers are bright and I do use them on the country roads when driving home at night. Damn moose and deer have a habit of walkin on the road at night. I am very caution to make sure they are turned off at any hint of on coming traffic ( I also wired the relay into the Hi-Beam wire so they cannot be turned on unless the hi-beams are on). The situation is this: I was driving down my side road with my hiibeams and Strikers on when a vehicle comes over the hill +1 mile away, the driver of said vehicle flashes me to dim my lights. "GIVE ME A BREAK" are they that bright! If that's the case a bar full of hi power lights will be way overkill and totally useless. On my old trucks I use to run 6" 12v tractor sealbeams for $9.95ea on a roofbar or rollbar and they did the trick for camping, and night driving, but were not dangerous if someone should sneak up around a corner on you..
So what do you guys suggest as a better alternative for a light set-up.
