Didn't get to explore the other areas, we were getting close to losing daylight by the time we headed off the trail. And yeah I think he's growing it out!
Although it's probably unnecessary, I ordered the 10" Rigid Industries SR LED fixture. This is honestly what I should have gotten in the first place instead of the little fixture. Got it on sale for $250 with free shipping, only $100 more than the single light. This thing outputs 3,200 lumens and is the combo pattern which incorporates the flood and spot designs, while throwing light 469 meters at the furthest and drawing 2.4 amps.
My main purpose is so that I can have light turned on for extended periods without needing the Jeep itself to be running. While we were at OFR, I had to leave the TJ on in order to light the campsite adequately due to the power draw on my incandescent fixtures. I'll absolutely be keeping them, but this should provide a good alternative/addition.
I'm going to pick up a color filter for it for snow storms to avoid glare off the snow. Apparently the blue filter is the best one possible for snow storms. Still need someone to buy the other light. It's on JeepForum, North Shore Jeeps, Craigslist, and Facebook. God I regret buying it!
