    Hey everyone I'm getting ready to order some red ring hids. I'd really like to run 4 lights, two floods and two spots. My question is will 4 lights fit on bamfs lightbar? Or can I only stuff two behind grill. I'd like the seven inch lights but would consider 4 inch

    Four sevens might be a tight fit

    Too many to list now.
    I'd be wary of moving the tranny cooler too. They put it there for a reason.

    All that needs to be done is to install longer mounting bolts that put the cooler a few inches closer to the radiator, thereby freeing up more space for the lights, he'll know pretty quickly if he needs to do this but with the 4 inchers outboard I doubt he will need to

    I think so too. That's why I had to go outside the grill with my 8".

    Yea, looks like ill run two sevens in the center with 4 inchers on the ends. the sevens will be euro beam, the 4 inchers will be floods. Does that sound like a good setup?
    my night time offroading is desert roads/trails.

    Pro Comp, 8", 135wt each......I think they were around $35 a piece and they work better than the KC 6" Daylighters I had years ago, for less than 1/2 the price. ;)

    yeah, my feeling is that the 4's might be a little over matched for what you want to do, you don't ever want to have a situation where you could possibly out-run your lights. Keep experimenting with your aiming and possible bigger floods to get what you need.
