Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Next phase: horrible lighting. After endless amount of research as well as talking to the #1 lighting man in the US, I am proceeding. Sealed beams suck, period, no questions asked. In this mountainous country where high beams are on 90% of the time, I needed to make a change. Biggest problem is cost. Having to balance between perfect lighting and having them taken out by wildlife. Bulbs arent the answer just part of the equation, lamps are the biggest part.

More to follow when start the project........

Here is where I am at now [top lights are gone]:

Meh...not quite.

"VisionX" is just another of the many, many pretend-brands of garbage badly made in parts of the world not known for quality, innovation, or anything else worth having. Stick to bulbs made by real, actual bulb companies.
Plenty of research on lights here: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/for ... Automotive

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Ever think about using HD projector lights like they do on current buses and trucks?
I went HID and will never go back..
I did this to my 2000 Xterra using mini Morimoto projectors about four years ago. Used 6500K Bulbs bright white.
Here is a link showing a conversion:

Do I need to send you the specs or do you want to just shoot from the hip? ;)

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Add flame tubes and cook the "harvest" on the way there. Talk about Alaskan take home!! maybe name the bus "Bus-B-Que" I might have to do the same thing here. The deer are so thick they run into stopped cars and trucks here.
