I can bring 650 watts to bear in the front of my SubaruHummer.

http://www.ultimates...rt=3&ppuser=584


4 Rectangular driving lights 100w each

2 Round driving lights 100w each

2 Turn signals 15w each

3 clearance lights 15w each

Like I really need all these lights...:lol:


The rectangular ones are Harbor Freight $6.99 specials. They work great!

I have 310 watts of forward light (minus the headlights of course, they suck anyways)..A pair of 100watt's on the bumper and my yellow 55watt ones up top. All ebay specials, the yellow ones are actually quite awesome in the dark makes things easy to see on the sides of the trail and they don't reflect off the snow nearly as bad as white lights. Here's a pic on a gloomy snowy day, so they look kinda dim, but just compare them to the side markers which you can barely tell are on.

Here is my Brat. it has a few less expensive lights that get the job d-u-n. I haven't had the chance to test the yellow fog lights much, they do ok though, nothing great. Also, I threw in a 100w for the center lamp... the sucker is brighter than my highbeams!

Here's a pic of mine finally. If you're going to go with one pair of big lights, I'd get some Lightforce 240s. About 95% of the line-haul trucks up here use those.Posted Image

Heres a pic of my brat with the roof lights (last summer)
There just the cheapo internet-specials .....but dont get any moisture in 'em since I sealed 'em good when I put them on.

They work real good in the fields when the hay is taller than the hood:headbang:

Right next to Kluane Lake in the Yukon, actually. Now that I think about it, it does kinda look like Turnagain, doesn't it?

They work OK but had no where near the spread I wanted.
They are painted my signiture Matte Black and disconnected

If you wanted to swap in some hot H4's the could work OK but they are fragile.

I have two spots and four spreads.

Its VERY bright and the wildlife isn't!

Nipper, you may have a rear facing foglight, but check this out! Rear facing floodlights, baby! (They come on manually or with the reverse lights.) I've also got high-mounted LED running lights and turn signal flashers on the top of the rear gate so people can see me better in the snow).
