I can read just fine. My phone is backlit. I don't need to be kept up by the sound of coyotes howling at Florida.

I would test fit the 20" on the hood before you mount it permanently. I have heard that the reflection off the hood makes those lights not very effective. You already have the stairways death ray on top of your windshield, you may look at mounting it lower on or inside your new bumper and use it more as a fog light. Get amber too. Regardless you will need more lights after

I'm going with a amber, clear hybrid lense on the 20" which will hopefully save on glare. And with all the holes in the hood from the Louvers, I don't expect much glare issues. I have none with the 50"

I wish you could have seen the faces I got carrying this thing across campus from the mail room.

Pretty solid but only 45lbs so its light weight compared to a lot of other set ups. No I just need a winch to dress it up.
