    Depends on how far ahead you want to see. If it's for high speed runs, you'd want spots because they'll be a narrow, focused beam that projects out. If it's for slow speed crawling where you just want to see what you're going to run over immediately, then you'll want flood because it'll be a short, wide beam.

    Does your camper have a set of reverse lights already?

    So, I'm probably hitting my rocker panels with Monstaliner tomorrow, and I'm thinking about how high to take it. Part of me says stop at the door sill, and part of me says take it to the height of the back bumper. Quick photoshop below for ideas. What do you think?monsta-truck.jpg

    Definitely different - black and blue didn't work out too well for me. I painted my grill black and now I feel like a stock F150 basemodel......

    I'd stop it a few inches below the crease in the door if it were me.

    Nope. I did notice that it's wired for them though.

    Hm. I was going to suggest just swapping the bulb out for a higher-output LED, but scratch that one, haha!

    "ditch lights" are supposed to be for lighting up the ditch next to your truck. You should get flood lamps

    Make them point down to the ditch like this

    I've thought about doing this myself. I like it where you PS it in. Make sure to do the fenders too though. I just saw one like that in Maine last week. Ex below (don't :bananadead: me. I know the picture is of a Dodge)

    I need to hook the trailer to the truck to confirm, but I found some wires that I think are for reverse lights.

    I'm going to retract my previous statement, go even with the bumper like that Ram. That looks good.

    Have you got a bumper on the rear of that camper, just the basic cross bar?
    If so...
    I have something similar to this mounted facing rearward on the roll bar for my Kubota and they put out really good light. And they're adjustable (to an extent) for angle and direction.

    So far they've been weatherproof, but usually the tractor's parked undercover so I can't say that they'd hold up to a driving rainstorm

    I have the standard square bumper that holds the shitter pipe inside. Those lights look identical to the ones I bought.

    I might be opening pandora's box here.... but what do you guys think about snorkels? NYCO's is pretty singular with that pre-filter

    I've always been opposed because their pretty useless in NE (no dust storms) and look kinda stupid...

    But, I'm starting to warm up to them, plus I just found out about the Wotefusi ones for 3.4L for $130 bucks, which is within my price range. Would never flop out the dough for the ARB, neva.

    Cam and I have been talking lightly about a road trip west to hit Moab and just spend a lot of time abusing the shit out of our tacoma's in the middle of nowhere, and in the long list of shit I feel I need/want before that... the snorkel is finding its way in
