I was also wondering how bad the hood glare was from these light bars. Pretty bad in my opinion. If anyone has a light or bracket that doesn't glare post a pic with details. Thanks

Do you have pictures of it mounted? I would like to see how you achieved that. I know the black hood center is helping, but you are right in that it is shining on the front edge only.

Also, what 50" LED bar are you running? Is it in driving or spot configuration? (Or both? "Driving | Spot | Driving")

I run a dual row combo beam from IllumiNATION LEDs. The hood louvers is actually gray, but works the same, Im sure it does help keep more glare down, but like I said there isn't a whole lot. It lights up the hood, but no hot spots.



I don't have a great aim photo but you want to turn it on and aim it yourself

I dont really see the glare on the hood, but I kind of have a hi-lift in the way that takes most of the light haha
