hey guys,

while at the dog park this morning i was pondering about the last lights i had , i have 3 but i broke the glass in one the other day, and put them in a box and said forget it, but today i came up with a novel idea, and granted they are not perfectly horizontal but it works, now just need to wire them up... what do yall think... finished just in time to get some chik-fl-a breakfest ..lol

these will be wired up to to a seperate switch and will be angled out to the side so i have a full lit veiw this way i will see any wildlife or what not on the trails and to get on the trail head okay in the dark ...

a pic of the right unpainted, this weld was crap cause i had the wire speed and temp all wrong, after all i didnt want to burn through my bumper...


Pic of the left Painted, this weld is much better got it down this time...lol


Fronatl veiw, yes that flat black spray paint and some tools on the hood.. i was excitied..


Right close up shot


only took about an hour...

A set up like that would get you in trouble in my town. That's blocking the parking/turn signal lights in the front. Maybe if they were moved in a little closer to the center? Better yet, the larger lights on the inside, smaller lights on outside, but still moved a little closer to center.

Otherwise, nice work...

I think I'll have to agree with Mario, covering the turn signals isn't a great idea. I also think it may look proportioned better if the larger lights are on the inside. Then, see if you can mount the small ones upside down on the outer perches so as to not cover the turn signals? Interesting concept though.

as for the laws.... well... :( lol... thge turn signal part isnt a problem cause there is a turn signal on the side of the light as well, and for teh city/parking light the buld is just left of my off road light so most of the extruding light isnt blocked, but we will find out wont we...lol.. ill take a pic tonight when its dark to show how much light is comming through...

i want the two big lights on the side cause they output more wattage=further light beam not to mention the big ones wont fit on the bumper cause the hit the grille,

but all in all i like the look...

i hope this works, but heres a vid of the blinker on... just give it 10 secs to load once you click the link

they arnt covered the bulb for the blinker is to the right of the off road light, which in turn most of the extruding light can be seen.. and 2nd, since the light is chrome it refracts the light back into the houseing and get extruded out anyway ... and i will be adding a set of small blinkers also...

heres ais a vid filmed moments ago ...

7:58 Pm EST(please wait a few secs for it to load)

Have you thought about putting the larger 2 in the holes in the bumper bracket? Right and left? Would look kind of trick, and you would have no worries about turn signal lights, or anything else. Just my :m2:
