Have you thought about a light that fits in the warning lamp holes? I keep thinking 4 good lights up there would be the ticket for long range visibility.

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

I dont like lights that go above the windshield, seems to be a lot of light within 2' of it. I have a couple Daylighters that I tweaked. They reach out far. I will put them in the grill somewhere. I'm going just below the turn signal I think. Should be starting on it in a couple weeks.

Jack, that aint the start of it! I dont ever drive that fast though, that was out on the flat and it got away from me. I keep it at 65. Had it close to 80 but that was fast for where I was so I got out of it. Curious to see just how fast it goes.....kinda.
