I snagged a few more night shots this evening! However they are still crappy cell pics, but they are better than driveway pics



Slight difference between forward and rear light output.





Rear output using the pair of Hella FF75s with a fog pattern. They give off a wide ring glow, but most of the light is a line (probably because of the oval shaped housing) that I have aimed about 30 yd. behind me.





The front is a whole other story! At this time I have the 42" aimed about 70yd. ahead of me. I think next time I go out I will rotate it up a little.





What I made the camera see.



And what I was actually seeing. Are your eyes burning because mine were!!!



A shot of the rear with just the Hellas on.



And then with the Cree reverse lights on. Notice how the driver side is brighter than the passenger? That is the difference between a 7w and 5w Cree!



And a little shot of the underside looking forward.

I was trying but I don't think I got the signal pattern correct. Flicking them on and off didn't seem to work!

I've seen those! They make some good logos. I already have a full array of switches though. I even have a spare at this point!

You can either call Tough Light directly or PM Dave on JG (he is the one who put the GB together).

I hooked up with Verent (Verminator) this morning for a quick trip to LW trail while he was in town! Most of these pics will be of him, but I will have some of yours truly as soon as he gets them to me.





And the mandatory shot!



On to the best obstacle. It had actually changed a little since the last time. The pipe is now separated at a joint that I hadn't noticed before and has started moving around. Someone took an old tailgate and mixed it with the rocks in front of the pipe, which is now holding it from rolling down the hill! Basically it has become even more fun



You can see the pipe separation and gap on the back side in this next one.










And that's when he started slipping over towards the ravine and the tailgate popped up into his undercarriage. With no belly skid or sliders and the ravine getting very close, we decided to strap him up and bring him up safely.

Now time for some boulder shots. Khakis unite!!!

Then we made our way down to the air field for some rock play.











After my last time out I decided to take the normal way out, only I found another way to get there Turned out to be a little more fun, but not so extreme like the other way. Granted if you took a bad line a roll over was bound to happen.











I did manage to get a shot of my tire while wheeling. Not too bad for 20psi!!!

He is running the OME HD suspension with RRO UCAs and 265/70/18 (32.6) on Sahara wheels using 1" wheel spacers up front and 3/4" in the back.

Very true! I had to take this pic and send it to my buddy at 4WP, because he didn't believe me that I could get good flex out of this carcass only running 20psi.

Omelet,

Have you compared the Tough Light bars to Vision X or Rigid? I assume a very close comparison in light output.
