    i figured they would fit behind a satoshi because of how thin they are, but ive been told by a couple people they dont fit behind the deep dish satoshi. but for all i know they could of been talkin about the bigger hellas

    tim, do you notice any problems w/ your engine temp being hotter w/ all 4 of those lights blocking the radiator? looks like they cover a majority of it.

    PS, looking forward to the light bar/lights i got from you. just gotta find time to install!

    Curious of this as well. Have you had them on for an extended time while in hot temps too? Also how do they look all lit up?
