    Good morning :wave:

    Here's a sneak peek at my latest project.
    Still have to workout a couple of details but this gives an idea of what I'm working towards.

    Headlights upgrade is definitely on the list but this is a light tower for setting up camp in the dark.

    I’m a huge advocate for the ultimate headlight upgrade wiring harness an osram bulbs I love mine. Probably the most useful mod I’ve done. I’ve had leds w/built in cutoff in stock housing that was good but to ricey looking to me an put out to much light to the side. Here’s a pic of my just low beams just took pulling into work.

    Do it total setup was 115 for harness an 40 for the bulbs.
    average results I’ve read is about 6months - 1.5 years depending on usage.
    i was blown away initially vs the stock bulbs it’s a super easy install took me about 30min an I work slow.
