    Thanks guys. After I did it I realized how many people have mounted a light down there. After seeing a few 30" down in the lower I makes me want to re do it with a 30". Maybe later.

    For now I like the clean look. And its protected from theft a little more down there.

    Looks awesome. ever driven on the road with it on? if so did it look like you might be blinding oncoming traffic or is it aimed low enough?

    Never tried it on the road. I would think its too bright for on coming traffic.

    It is much brighter then the brights.


    Thanks
