Behind grill light suggestions

Looking to put 2 lights behind my Grillcraft. Just ordered a BAMF light bar. Any suggestions for lights?

Hellas are good, a light bar is better
Light force 170's will fit if you don't have a satoshi I believe. Lots of options. I wouldn't go Piaa though. Just personal preference.

I was wondering if I could fit my 170's behind the grill if I did a grillecraft style grill. Anyone no for sure? I thought I read about someone doing it...

For the price of two lightforce 170s, you can get four "Kragen" HIDs

Those are probably what I'm going to go with.

Pix?

It's not that I don't believe you. But it would be a cool photo demonstration.

Bascially, I wouldn't be too surprised to find out that candlepower/dollars is roughly a constant across brands.

It's cool.

What grill is that? Looks nice!

EDIT. Crap. I can't read. It says right there in the quote. "Black Diamond Fab Grill." DOH!

I think mine is an older grillcraft IIRC, i mounted it flush with the opening, not inserted into the openings like you can do with the satoshis, the reason i did this is so that i don't have to fill the openings left from where i cut the old grill out. This left me a lot of room for lights.



Notice all the lights are mounted forward on the slots of the lightbar, the middle two are some off brand i can't recall, the outer two are older KC Daylighters which are as deep as lightforce 170's, the KC's are deeper than any of the hellas that would fit in your application IIRC I'll see if i can find a pic around here someone posted of four lightforce 170's
