I got them from Olympic 4x4, it's a local 4x4 shop that specializes in Jeep off road parts and has a full scrap yard of jeeps to go through. They were only $200.00 bucks for 4 of them.

Nice! Rigid makes great lights and i like the look of that. Wonder how those compared to their Duallys, because thats a great price and a clean look!

Thanks! I'm extremely happy with it and wanted to go with something that style vs the round style light as I thought it fit it better.

That's a good question. Next time I go into Olympic 4x4 I'll have to check them out and take some pics. I've thought about switching over to double row later on down the line and moving two of the current ones up front after I put on the recovery hitch and moving two to the back of the rack for extra back up lights.

I'm looking into getting the defender basket, eventually. How did you mount the basket to your rails?

Added Tuff Stuff 22" LED bar to the JK bar up front. It is so much brighter then the two hellas I had originally.

First impressions for the Viper TB doing regular driving were exceptionally favorable. I got to do some driving through town, on the road, and on the highway. I must say that without a doubt there is indeed a lot more power. Through town wasn't much different than before. On the road, it seemed much easier to keep speed through the hills. On the highway it felt wonderful though. Cruising, it felt like there was much more spare power that could be readily accessed, even though the engine didn't ever seem to need it.

Very worthwhile mod in my opinion, though I did make note that you probably won't be able to do it and keep your stock intake, as the coupler on that is quite small by comparison to the size coupler you'll need for the new TB. The other part is that the coupler seems to be attached to the stock intake tube, so you may have trouble getting it off.

you feel like this review is right or he's full of crap?

I purchased this light a couple months back. It seems that they have since updated the optics on this light as it now looks slightly different than the one that I received.
With the light I received there's no telling where the flood/spot patterns start and stop when viewing the lit light pattern or visually inspecting the lens.
I purchased this light as a low cost alternative to a Rigid Industries light bar. Although the build quality seems fair I feel that the Chinese bars are still lacking in the optics and how the usable light is focused.
My recommendation would be don't waste your money on a combo pattern light when the Chinese brands are concerned. Go for a straight Spot pattern.
We did a side by side comparison with a rigid light in a flat area in the desert. The rigid flood/spot cut through the darkness and you can see an obvious spot pattern. This light is a big disappointment where there isn't stuff like trees or bushes for the light to bounce off of and there isn't a discernible spot pattern. It simply doesn't cut through the darkness like the rigids.

I like that you have the K&N and the Hypertech, too!
I'll keep reading your posts about the Viper throttle body.

Looks sweet! Might have to get myself some and do it too, how did you wire it?

Ran into a guy at a carwash, he had an Xterra lifted with a Yakima basket and LED's, he said exactly what you said it basically turns night into day. The LED set he bought he basically told can take a lot of abuse too, he spent a lot of coin on them. Your lights look great! I can't get them for my Jeep I'll get into too much trouble lol. Especially from those individuals driving imports lol.
