lights are very bright and helpful when camping at night/shore diving..

luckily we have about 100ft of that bent angle iron in our shop, and the lights can only be turned on from the cab...a hidden outside switch might be a good idea tho

Word....Nice work.

I might have to give that a shot...Sadly I don't have a shop...so I'll be bending it myself...and I think I'm going to mount the lights under instead of over.

I also thought about mounting them under but i figured i wanted to get as much out of lights as possible, plus i found that light and blinker combo and thought that would look pretty cool

Do you have an old bed frame stowed away somewhere? You could hack a couple sections out of one of those. I'm pretty sure you can get angle iron or angle aluminum at Lowes or Home Depot. Bending without a brake or press may be a PITA.

Solid ideas- Thanks man!!

No bedframes, but I do have some ideas...and I do have access to a good auto shop on base that has a brake iirc.
