I also went by my local 4WP and got a nice deal on a much needed set of Staun Tyre Deflators.

Now I just need to dial them in
how do those tire deflators work?

They are pretty simple. Once you dial them in, you screw them onto the valve stem and they automatically deflate to your preset pressure. No more crouching down manually deflating one tire at a time!

Yeah they work well once they are set up Nathan! A little hint, give them a tap when they look to be getting close, once they get a little worn and bits of grit out of the tyre they can stay on till no more air!

So I have had this beautiful box sitting in my living room for the past couple of days waiting for me to get home. Well, today was the day! Let me introduce you to the new 42" LED bar form Tough Light:

Packaging was quite nice. It came snug in it's form fitted case.






A shot of the back side.




The end.




The only wires it comes with is the one coming out the back center, a well insulated sucker with 12GA + and - wires. No harness, but that's fine because I would have just cut it up and made my own anyways.




And here she is, all 80 LEDs ready to light up the night with 15,000 lumens!!!






This guy is solid and hefty, but appearance wise it doesn't quite hold up to Rigid's attention to detail. For instance, the clear and white caulking/sealer that was used was a bit sloppy.








And it is a little hard to see, but the clear lens is sunk slightly below the frame on top and flush on the bottom.




However, looks aren't everything and to me as long as this thing puts out as advertised, it is worth every penny! And in this case that would be less than half the price of the 40" bar from Rigid!!!


Here she is next to the Rigid 20"






And about where it will be resting by the end of this weekend!

On top of the lights you already have on the gobi or replacing those?

It will be replacing the 4 Hellas. No point in keeping them there, they will be like a $5 flash light in comparison

Just making sure, do you have plans for those?

If I decide to sell them they are spoken for already. But if that falls through, I will let you know.

Haha! Oooooh! The front 4 are spots so they wouldn't work very well for side light, but if I get another bar for the rear then I might through the two from the rear on the sides since they are floods.

Ya I hope so! I have to modify the rack in order for it to work, so we will see.
