Yeah, and where I am nothing above 54". I guess that's why they make you cover them? That would be to much of a pain on a bus. Ok, going to tin over them.

For us with transit-style, it'd be easier than those with a hood. We wouldn't have to crawl over everything.

I have the lights up there for the potential adventures, being that it is for hauling bikes to remote riding spots, they will come in handy.

As for load lights, I am planning on mounting slim RV style LED floods, 2 per side. On the back it'll get 2 up top and 1-2 down low.

If they are more concerned with the 4x4 look than getting the most out of their money and lights, I wont change their minds!

When it gets dark you just can't have to many lights. Especially back up lights if you're going remote. Sounds fun.

Ive been removing these old bulky ugly running lights.

Besides being ugly, they have been the source of massive leaks and they use 5watts of power each(12 lights x 5watts = 60watts!)

So today I installed my first one of these guys from superbrightleds.com


I had to drill a 5/8" hole and the OD of the light is about 3/4"
Here's the link if anyone is interested

For got to say,you can get them at most truck stops now, and if you have a truck supplier local they are even cheaper, here in the KC area I have found them for ($2.35) each
