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.

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???

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".

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

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
