Well I bought (4) small LED light bars….I am keeping my LightForces.
They have the CREE LEDs...it's 2x3
Mounts on one post and I bought them as floods.
Note they DO NOT come with connectors…picture below is after I had mounted the connectors.


Got them off ebay for $115 for (4).
No harness relay or switch...which is fine, since I have them already.
Going to mount (2) on the front bumper, near the head lights.
One on the rear bumper (no idea where yet) as a back up light or get off my ass light.
The 4th, I may mount on the rear bumper or maybe mount on the front center bumper.
Not yet sure.
Here are some pics of the LED Flood lights.

The LED arrived in a KILLER packaging job - it looks like it could survive floating in the ocean.


4 nicely stacked boxes


So during Christmas I started the wiring.
The LED lights were bagged and stuffed between foam.
The hardware was in a bag.
There are NO connectors for this, you would have to supply yourself.


For connectors, I used my extra DELPHI's Weatherpack Connectors.


I still have to string up the relay, switch to my fusebox - that will have to wait until January. :cool:

So this weekend, I stopped by Jayce's shop to get my light tabs welded onto the front bumper.

First was the removal of the powder coat and marking locations.


We then dry mounted and tack welded the tabs into place.
Note on the passenger side, I opted to have two mounts, one for the flood light the other the antenna mount.




Then Jayce went at it with welding the tabs.


After removing some weld splatter and a cool down period - I painted them.



Today, I will mount the antenna and the floods.
Next month I will wire the relay, toggle switch and post up

Mounted the antenna - works great.
Dry mounted the floods to see how they look.


Spaced just right.


Driverside flood


Cannot wait to finish the wiring and hit the switch.

No kidding; a member from TX who is moving to CO bought a 10" single row for more than I'd like to say. Now he can return it and get a lot more LEDs for a lot less.

Lights wired… overall I am pleased.
They are bright and work great with my LightForce HIDs.
Still need to work on the alignment a little.
Sorry for the iPhone pics.
Note my low beams are not on… due to the same light switch issue.
So I expect the coverage to be a little more.


HIDs only

might as well aim them up a tad. these things work well for slow night wheeling but only time will tell if they are decent for regular night driving. I replaced a pair of VisionX 6500s with the Rigid D2s. the D2s don't put out near the distance but I never expected them to. heck, the 6500s don't have that great a pattern, IMO, either :p

Nice license plate, lol. I cannot imagine it will be too long before off road lights start going LED. If they havent already started. Seems at this point it is better to go LED rather than HID.
