as seen on yotatech...
dont' know... haven't seen them perform yet. if it does work, i'll probably do the same thing.Bear said:The plan is to have one facing forward and aft around the carrier bearing for rocks. what do you think about that as an idea? or would the beam of light be too narrow?
good point!Bear said:I have seen that tried before, I am no expert by any means, but straping them to the sliders (bottom side) isn't such a great idea. I have seen them ripped right off the sliders.
The sliders are there for a reason…protection and keeping the rocks away from your body panels. If you put the lights there, you are defeating the purpose of the sliders.
When I mount anything to the bottom of my truck, I always try to keep them above the "slider line" that way I know they should be protected under "normal situations"
That makes more sense to me now, but I would still have some reservations.nastynate said:good point!
i was going to use the slider tubes (nearest to the frame) as a mounting point, but the lights would be *higher* than the sliders
so the lights themselves wouldn't be in danger, just the mounts.
No, that's cool. I don't even know what type of mounts i'd use for that setup.Bear said:That makes more sense to me now, but I would still have some reservations.
Without mounts the lights are useless. I would be interested in seeing how you do it. I may be thinking completely out my ass on this one!
Another thing to consider about installing rock lights. They can double as great work lights as someone else suggested. I think if they were too far "outboard" you would limit your ability to use them as work lights. If they were mounted up under the body of the truck you could still point/use them for any under chassis work.
Again, I am not trying to shoot down your idea just throwing out all possibilities and reasoning here.
