Tinted windows and rocky trails don't mix. I have looked all over the back for mounting options and think this will be the safest (least likely to be wiped smooth by rocks). My trailer connector is testament to bottoming out. Still there but the mounting plate is not long for this world. I don't think it looks too bad. The lights I'm planning on using are the rigid dually wide beam. Not sure of the regular or D2 flavor. One is 1300 lumens and the D2 is 2600 and twice the price. Any opinion on looks?
