Currently out of stock. I will do my best to send a pair with your sliders though.

Brackets just came in this morning! I paired the brackets with Rigid Industries Duallys. The Brackets fit and work perfectly with RI's provided bolts and nuts.

Very easy installation! I put them in by myself, Installed them as described in the previous post with no problems. The hood stays steady the whole time.

I used towels to protect the hood and windshield from scratching while I was tightening the brackets down. (I didn't need them, I just didn't want to risk it.)
Derek shipped them on 9/12/2012 and they arrives 5 days later. Thanks bro!
They are fit and work exactly as described and are perfect.
I'll post better pictures soon!

Wow! That was quick! Looks great. Thanks for confirming that the Duallys fit. I have been getting that question from a few.

Got some night shots tonight. These pictures are with RI Duallys. I don't have night shots with Bulldog Lighting Spikes.
Having the lights mounted so high up really shows off the optimum output of the duallys. (compared to having them mounted in the valance)
I love these brackets! They allowed me to put the light right where I wanted.

I love the look of those brackets with the lights. Did you get white lights, and are they flood or spot? Also did you get the covers, I wonder how they fit. What is it like driving at night with the reflection off of the hood? I have ordered a set to use when we are driving down dark country roads so maybe we won't hit another deer. I want to aim them off to the sides of the truck to let those pesky deer know we are comming.

Mine are aiming off the side. Same reason, deer.

These are the white spot pattern, they put a lot of light in a concentrated area. Absolutely No glare reflects off the hood back into the cab either.

The covers hold on by friction alone, they fit kind of awkwardly, but have yet to shift or fall off after about a year of driving.

How do they wire up? Do they have plugs? I will have to remove them for State Inspections. Dave

The duallys come with a wiring harness that is all plug and play. As easy as it gets. Comes complete with a fuse, a switch, and plugs that are already built into the harness. Plugging and unplugging is a lot like the connectors on HID systems.

FYI, I am now a dealer for Bulldog Lighting for all of you mentioning "Duallys".

The Bulldog Lighting Spikes are brighter and cheaper.
