    ATO front skid (need more but icon's might fail if I hang anything else from my truck) All-Pro front bumper thanks to a good deal here and a pesky encounter with a rock or 20, total chaos uppers.
    Ok I just got my baja rack installed and now need to install a dust light. Not sure how bright is to bright if someone is behind you on a trail. Want to be visible at night in the desert but don't want to blind people. Can someone recommend one and hopefully a photo or 2?
    Thanks!

    Thanks for the link, anyone know if there is something similar in a LED? Figure with my light bar and fogs plus sterio I should try to be a little nicer to my alternator and battery.

    any LED sidemarker or turn signal from a truck would work...I'm running 4" round LED's as reverse lights.

    I picked this up a while ago, but never found the time to install it so no clue how bright it is. (1) KC HiLites 26 series amber 55w warning light #1520

    IMO I'd rather have the light brighter then need be then not bright enough. If your not racing you can always tint a bright light darker but can't make a dull light brighter.
