lighting bars
 
im curious if many of u guys have added extra lighting like on bull bars or roof mounts or were ever else i really enjoy trail driving an extra lighting is always a plus

Dont know anyone on here that has them. But have seen them on cars before. I guess if you use them at the right time for the right reason its not too bad an idea.

I've seen everything done. I have driving lights in the stock fog position, but no light bars or other mountings.

Those are crazy bright keep us updated ive seen them on sandrails and prerunners. they are brighter then a few giant ass 7inch offroad lights if you get a legit one.

i kno i kno my welding isnt the greatest but im workin on it never been taught how to tig weld so im teaching myself

diesel paul 11-10-2011 08:55 PM

ok my next project is building a hitch what size reciever should i put on it

ejs0806 11-12-2011 03:35 AM

damn thats actually sick as hell.. Did you mount it to the roof rack?? is it solid so it wont get jacked lol I dont know how bad that is around you but here in AZ offroad lights get stolen all over the place. Also weldings good man how it looks really doesnt matter as long as its solid (im a beginer welder as well and your doing better then me)... As for hitches im not sure i dont know anything about car hitches what are you planning on towing? also isnt there only 1 car hitch size and one size for trucks???

diesel paul 11-13-2011 01:25 AM

thanks man ya its mounted to the rack with expansion nuts very solid its pretty bad with theft in town but try to stay away from there ha ha ha it will be finish bolted with allens so thats less likley to get ripped off ya i agree with you with the welds its definetly over kill on strength i probably will pull my snowboarding gear trailer maybe 500 pounds

What me and my buddies do for offroad lights is usally get a bolt with a hole in it and put a carter pin through as an extra deterent. But in your case that wouldnt work since the bottem isnt exposed. Try a torx instead?? One of those wierd ones that you need a special one for. How much did you pick up that light for anyway arent they extremely pricey. Also do you want it so you can slide a hitch in and out or just a solid set up with a ball thats on all the time?? Where are you planning on attaching it too??

Looks good. And bright. That last pic even looks a little "police-ish".

diesel paul 11-13-2011 02:21 PM

those are good ideas with the bolts i might just get some funky bolts to put in it less likely for someone to have that tool
i would like to remove the hitch so probably a reciver style hitch so its not out there all the time o an the cost of that light was not cheap it was around 850 but lifetime waranty an its bright as hell:D

Damn thats pricey but deff worth it with warranty and such.. Maybe see if someone with the hitch could give you measurements of it you could probably just duplicate it for a fraction of the cost and have that great feeling of fabbing up your own stuff

diesel paul 11-13-2011 11:54 PM

true dat i love messing around an building stuff i found a hitch for my car used but it wont work with n1 style exhaust
