Got my new much lighter bumper today

then i looked at my rock lights

and got to thinkin :confused0006:


they are the vision x 10watt type and would make hella bright reverse lights[36]





now how to mount these bad boys:dontknow:


they are sooo close to fitting perfect. So close in fact that i might just be able to remove a tiny bit of metal and have them fit on the vertical edge inner


any ideas or other mounting thoughts:dontknow:

also have to figure a way to hold em there

Bring them by the shop this weekend or call me and we can figure out which of the next three nights I will be there. We can weld some tabs on to hold them in place.[cheers]

Oh and we should wire them to trigger off reverse and also an override switch up front. You may want them on even if not in reverse sometimes[cheers]
