Added some lights....

The headlights are of course FORD, which is just short of useless so in went a set of PIAA 85/105 intense white bulbs, as are the 'driving lights' so I added a 20" and set of Dually Rigid Industry lights up front, plus a set of Dually Rigid's on the sides to compliment the driving lights.
When you turn on the LED's the bulbs look a weak yellow in comparison.
I tried them on the way home from town tonight and I like them, but not as much as the old 8" Bosch Rallye 225's. The Ralley's are not as intense white and do not light up close as good as the 20" bar, but are far better for long range deer/moose/cow spotting. The bar they were are on is an absolute piece of shiny chit, shook and vibrated which is useless for big lights, so back it went.

Then, for Momma I added some running board LED's which I think turned out great



and then a little LED for the jackwagons that have to follow behind you with the brights on :love0025:

Just open the electric back window, and SURPRISE!!!

I likely wont leave the 10" RIGID in the back window, I can just imagine the trouble I could get into, but WOW was it an easy install! I removed the 3rd headrest, which was blocking my view out the middle window, and the mount slid right in! I went outside just now with them on, and will be giggling for hours over that one. It's like looking in lasers!

I'd mount that 10" bar under your rear bumper. My lights keep all tailgaters way behind me. Nothing like 10 watt LED lights in their face.

I have a set of 4x4's coming, which are going to be mounted under the rear bumper. The 10" is too expensive/too much light for under there.

Princess Auto. They were $5.99 down from $13.99, dual led chrome cover, circuit board unit. I could grab some if anyone wants them, they really are a nice little light.
