    Mark - you are a C.T.

    Hey....I said pics after install....Still waiting on my D2's. :p

    I have a n-fab light bar....but I'm thinking of putting the amber Duallys on either side of my license plate....should fit right in their nice and snug. I'll lock it down somehow. Have to think on it.

    D2's in white (driving) will go on the outer tabs of the bar, and PIAA 510's (plasma fog) on the inside. I'm a light freak.

    But these lights are very, very well made. On top of that, made in the USA. Awesome customer service too.

    These are the Duallys in amber....I'm still waiting on my D2's in white. Should be this week.

    Install was easy...hardest part was going through the firewall. These are installed on a N-Fab light bar.

    I have a pair of D2's coming in white driving. I'm thinking of moving the ambers to each side of the license plate, putting the D2's on the outer tabs of the bar, and a pair of PIAA 520 Plasma fogs in the middle. :)

    I wish I would have gotten the D2's in amber....but these are just great too. They are the flood pattern. Pics don't do them justice. Can't wait for my D2's in white to arrive. :eek::eek:

    FX retros, Blazer fog-light retro, JVC KW-NT30HD head unit, Pioneer 6X9's in front doors, Pioneer 6.5's in rear doors, two Pioneer 12" subs in sealed boxes, Sony X-Plod amp, Hidden Hitch trailer hitch, EGR window visors, two PIAA low-tone horns, Westin light bar with two 100-watt KC low profile driving lights.
    I have the D2's in white, flood pattern. I really really wish I would have got the spot pattern instead. The D2's are really bright, but the flood pattern is just too floody for me. I may convert them into aux reverse lights and put the spot pattern D2's up front.

    lol you are referring to the "d2" rigid lights or projectors. if so sorry about the confusion that was a brain shart.

    the amber leds are nice man i love the fact that they draw about as much power as your brake lights but they can light up the entire road lol i'm running the vision-x solstice pods i have there floods and their euro beams the euros are nice not as controlled a beam as i had thought it would be. the floods are really for foreground lighting in really poor weather conditions or while off road in the absence of any other light source imo.

    i have mine hooked up to my high beams so when i fire them up the 4 solstice pods come on as well it's crazy bright so bright in fact that on a very dark road it hurts my eyes a bit while i'm driving lol.

    and most people don't even know what they are lol mine are very small and compact and low profile. some of the bars look coll but, thats also a downfall imo as they can entice the thieves.

    I looked at the Vision X stuff...and researched a ton not only on here but elsewhere.

    For the money, Rigid had better bang for the buck. Plus they're made here right in the States which is huge for me, their customer service was awesome and they got back to me immediately when I had questions.
