    The install was not hard at all, I've had the two outside ones on there for a few months now and that first install was kinda hard but all do-able. then I just drilled two more holes and mounted these up and tapped into the wires that were already there from the first two.

    How bad does it affect the cool air flow to your radiator? Looks awesome but on a long hot drive AND say you have the lights on?

    Is there a place to mount them ? Did you make your own bracket?

    Well I just put them on there last week and its February so its kinda hard to tell since its cold out anyway. There is still a lot of places where the air can get through so i don't think it will be too bad. Especially since I only put them on at night and its usually not to hot out at night.

    I hear ya. Then again though, I've driven through NV when it was 115 and I know I'd want as much air as I could get. I think that would be where a light bar would provide more air flow. Either way looks really clean and I'm interested to know if once it gets hotter if you notice a difference or not. Great job though :thumbsup:

    they actually arent too bad, I had them pointed downward at first and you could see them bounce but i pointed them up and you cant even tell except when you are on a dirt road.
