On mine there are a couple rubber o-ring type deals that help keep everything solid when you unscrew them to make it more of a fog beam. But i have mine screwed all the way in as well because i use them on the highway for driving lights mostly and dont want as much glare off the road signs and stuff. The 140's I have are set up more as fog lights.

The lens is another way to change the beam pattern. You can get a spot style lens, a combo filter, and even a sttraight fog filter IIRC.

If anyone decides to take on the task of HID'ing the lightforces buy the little adapter for an H3 bulb!! Theres a guy in Australia i think? that makes them and it makes the job a million times easier.

Info...these are NOT the right ones....these are 24v ones. They make both a 12v, and a 24v. Make sure you get the right ones when ordering...other than that..yes the light force 170's.

ya have seen that vid.

I will say this though. HIDs take about 5-10 seconds to warm up as that video shows. One of the reasons i like the LF240s as halogens they light up instantly.

Now..once the HIDs are warm they turn on and off like a halogen. But if you get stuck with a lot of traffic they cool down and don't pop back on instantly.

Not huge deal. Just an fyi.

also, if you wait a cpl weeks, I'm gonna have an nFab light bar for sale that you can stick those light forces on. It's how I have mine mounted now....waiting on my elite front bumper before I pull it off.

Edit: I just sent a pic to live, I'll post it up for you in a sec.
