DOH!

I am just going to wire it to A/C to DC convertor so I dont have to wait to annoy the hell out of my neighbor. (whos dogs likes to pee on my BFs.)
You can upgrade your alternator if you feel like it, but that light bar won't pull more than 300W. A lot less than the light setup I have running with my stock alternator. It will perform better if you do the upgrade, but don't feel obligated.

I like the switch location. Looks clean.

For the night shots, see below. Pricing wasn't too bad at all. Cost was $19 EACH, but I ordered 10 of them total.

Well I went out tonight (just got back actually) from aiming the lights the way I wanted them and taking some pics. THESE PICTURES DO NOT DO THEM JUSTICE IN THE LEAST! I don't know how you mess around to set the camera settings properly, so they're somewhat bad pics, but you get the idea. They are the 10W Single Cree LED lights.

Lows only:

Lows and all 4:


Lows only:

Lows and floods only (I have them aimed to the sides to light up ditch areas, therefore majority of beam is cut off):

Lows and spots only:

Lows and all 4:



AGAIN, these pictures don't don't do them justice AT ALL. They really must be seen in person to truly appreciate the light that comes from the single LED 10W units.

There's no minimum, but the more you order the better pricing you get. Example: order 5 at $30 each or 10 at $20 each type thing

sweet pictures, really bright! Just diverging a little since someone mentioned about rock lights, if you mount them underneath. How do you keep it clean?

I am replacing batteries much faster than I like due to short trips etc. I like the DC engineering ones but they are really ex, but good output in idle from 180amps to 270amps!

How do you wire two lights to one cable? splice?

You just need to check the amps and use a relay .. its really not to hard. Its probably a 30amp relay but I would check to be sure, that's just a total guess.

just google search how to hook up a relay ..

The frist time I hooked one up it took me a while and I had to read the thing like 3 times before I got it, but once you get it ... its really easy. Then you can use one switch too, witch is nice.
