I can put about 650w shining forward...my poor alt!


I think the "brightest" thing there is the dice though! :grin:

The spot light really comes in handy when you need to point at something. I got it off a wrecked cop car years ago.

Wal-Mart lights on a modified S-10 rollbar (at least, that's what it is according to the previous owner - all I know is that it's not a stock rollbar).

They basically work kinda OK, but I'm probably going to replace them with a set of Hella 500s I've got laying around.

I have found (at least for me) that anything below waist height simply gets destroyed off-road. :-\

Hence, my roof-lights :)

Anybody got pics of them mounted on the front-most rail of a stock ea82 GL wagon roof rack? Im aiming for that i think. Either 2 or 4 lights up there (probably 4, 2 aimed forward, 2 cocked off slighty to each side) On the rear rack mount Ill do the same but lights facing backwards.

360 degree ancillary lighting. Woo! Hope my new Maxima alt can handle it.

Also, i want to swap in 2 more supports on the rack and have a full sized spare up there too once i lift it.
