Well, I have never seen them but they look intriguing and the cost is not that bad. If you get them can you provide pics on before and afters.


Have you checked out the "San Diego Section"?

i just sent an email to the manufactorer asking what their thoughts on my idea are... we will see, the kit is supposed to be for lighting up a motorcycle.. so we will see what they say.


theres a Clairmont in San Diego, i live in Claremont, about 15 miles outside of LA.

hey,

i am looking to light up the bottom of my jeep for when i go off roading at night so i can see rocks and the area around me better. i came across this kit:

60PC Ultra Bright Motorcycle LED Engine Neon Kit------Large Selection, Incredible Bargain Price LED Lighting Kits for Motorcycle, Automobile, Home Use and Entertainment in XKGLOW.COM

I was wondering what your thoughts would be as someone who sells them and is familiar with the product, do you think this kit would do what i need. i was thinking about putting 3 in the front, 4 in the middle and 3 in the rear of the jeep all under the body pointed down to illuminate the ground around it.

please let me know what you think. best case scenario, id really appreciate it if you could send me a picture of a single one of these (white) light pods lit up and pointed down at the ground from about 3 feet high in the dark.


thanks for any help and input,

-Sean

and this is their reply

Hi Sean:

Thank you for your question. Actually we have some other customers asked exactly same question and purchased the same kit. Our white pods are very bright and will be enough to light up the ground from about 3 feet high in the dark. The white LEDs has a special enhance coating (compared with other color options we offered) and that makes it even brighter. They are built with the smallest housing on the market and they come with mounting brackets so you could adjust the angle to get the best angle. For more features of our light, please visit:

Please let us know if you have any question.

Best Regards

if you want to be really professional you could run them through a relay to. that way when you shut off the jeep it'll shut off the lights to.
