Just mount them to the bumpers, and run the wires up underneath.

LOL ! No I have never waxed it and if I could show the scratches I would ......it gets washed to keep the "Manitoba Gumbo" from sticking ( it's like glue ) . I have pretty bad hail damage as well ..... wierd it doesn't show . I have a claim for the damage and my body shop is getting me an AEV hood ... they said the price was close to stock though I may have to kick in for shipping and he said he would deal with the bad scratches as a learning thing with one of his apprentices ...... COOL ! But thanks Woodchuck One thing I do is spray WD40 in the inner fenders every now and then to help the Gumbo wash off .

I gotta give that wd40 a try. The main reason I wax mine is to try to keep it from getting scratched as bad when I go hunting. Just giving ya a hard time. How do you like those lightforce lights? I use a lightforce mounted to one of my guns for night hunting. It just stopped working but I think I stretched something in the cord. When it was working I loved it. Have fun and good luck with the hood. I'll keep ya posted on how mine turns out with insurance.

I was curious about the wireless kits...sounds like you are happy with how well they work? What does the switch look like and how did you mount it?

5 - 130 Watt K/Cs should be enough light.

Did KC discontinue the 150w lights? How are the KC 800 long range vs the slimlite long range?
