Well I just ordered (4) small 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.


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.

Cost of 4 was $115
Mtnfansclub is the shop.


The other items I bought is a RAM mount.
It will replace my ProClip mount.
On EXPO forum, a guy was able to mount his on the grab handle.

I like it so my eyes do not wonder far from looking at the road.

My 4 lights arrived. The packaging was top notch, it looked like you could drive on top of it.
I still have to get some mounting tabs and get them welded on.
So until then, I will get these lights terminated and ready for mounting.

My RAM mount also arrived. I will get that installed this weekend. And post up on it afterwards.

Light Tabs welded on.

Here are some pics of the LED Flood lights.

Killer wrapping and 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.


Then was to dry mount and tack weld 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 search my parts bin for a toggle switch for the lights.

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.

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
