offroad lights don't fit

I ordered some offroad lights for my bull bar but they don't fit. Does anyone know where i can get some sort of blue lights with a chrome housing that will fit on my bull bar?
Thanks

if you cant find any with a blue tint that are 6 inches or smaller........get a regular set of lights...like piaa or hella and get some blue tint film from lamin-x!! probably bout the easiest thing to do.

Can you get me some pics? I have 6" lights that are not wanting to fit properly. To get them installed they want to point down and I'm sure thats not gonna do much good when I need them. They also want to do a lot of moving. Any suggestions on how to get them to fit?







I literally just took these photos and was about to start my own thread.

Alex..............you may be able to get those to work, but you will have to work on the bases of the lights to do so.

I had to use one of those drive shaft type sockets to be able to wedge a socket in there and tighten my bolts, but it worked, mine wiggle, but i dont think they move really...

i moved mine a little forward and to the side cause i needed my front plate to be visible........

is this a good enough description??? i had my bullbar off my truck too when i drilled the holes, might need a center punch to get the hole started......

you see what it did though? moved the lights farther forward but allowed for clearance? make sure your lights will tilt far enough up before you start drilling

I think the rubber washer is to absorb vibrations or something while driving. The lights came with two of those on top of another metal piece. Perhaps getting rid of the rubber piece would help the fit issues.

The lights want to move a good bit, no matter how tight I make them. The lights basically have a bolt on the bottom that goes into the bullbar and then attaches inside the bulblr to a nut. The bolt in the actual light is not secured so the light shakes back and forth. If I shake my bullbar the lights go cross eyed. Not very good for when your driving in the woods.

I'm gonna try without the rubber peice Tommorow morning and see how that works. I'm also planning on getting a CB antenna and doing the DTRL mod as well so I'm gonna have a busy day.
