I installed the KC slimlites on the windshield yesterday and while trying to adjust the pattern, I noticed one lamp is putting out a much larger beam than the other. Like, significantly larger. These are the longrange units.
Glass is the same, part numbers on the housings are the same. I'm racking my brain here and dont know what's going on.

Eliminating install issues: what gauge wire are you using on the lights? I'd check the voltages right at the light with a multimeter. You may be suffering from a voltage drop across the longer wire lead. If so, you might have to use a heavier-gauge wire on the longer lead. Either that or the bulbs are different or the bulbs are sat in either reflector differently. Let us know what you find out!!!!
If I remember right the bulb snaps into the back of the reflector/lens just like a headlight does. I would guess that the bulb is not snapped in all the way or that it is crooked in the reflector.
The effect that is showing in your picture is like that of a mag-light when you turn the front to get their "flood" pattern!
The bricks on the right side were not fully sealed so they are absorbing the light...

The wagon should, of course, be as light as possible, but strength should not be sacrificed to lightness, for on any but the regularly traveled roads, the wagon will get many a hard knock...
