    The Vision X ones some pictures show it as a spot beam and some show it more as a flood so im not sure. Im thinking how to mount those pods, 2 on each side and then maybe that 6 inch led bar straight down in the middle in the back, or 2 :cool: Ill have to do some test stuff when I get my truck back.

    I did look at those originally but was comparing the ratings And preferred the ones that I linked.
    6" 18w 1530 lumen vs 8" 30w 2520 lumen. Plus I like the design a bit better.

    I looked into rock lights and was going to get the visionx kit but like dakota said I would most likely just get the waterproof led strip for under the truck. I have them installed in my bed and canopy, soon to be me hood and don't see any issues with under the truck.

    You could also look at these for rock lights:

    Oh okay. I thought about the strips but I feel like they wouldn't stay on very well over time. Is there a good spot to mount the bar in the back?

    Every time I buy the strips I buy a roll of 3M permanent adhesive tape. Remove the crap tape and add permanent tape.

    Which bar and which back?

    Oh okay.

    And those LED bars that you posted earlier in the very back, like between the spar tire and hitch somewhere to get light out the back of the truck

    Sorry, just to make sure your referring to these ones right?

    All it needs is a 6" section of clear flat area. I can't think of a spot off the top of my head but I am sure it wouldn't be too hard.

    How would you mount those?

    Find or drill a hole, stick it in, tighten down the nut.

    Yea, the 4R build used the 9w and they look pretty good.
    :thumbsup: Hell yea! You're the one that first told me about that light. I think we ended up with the 21" instead of the 18", but damn it's bright and I love the fact it rotates!

    Do it! They look pretty straight forward. I have a love/hate relationship with wiring, so I doubt if I will ever add any.

    Changed out my 2 halogen lights in the front with some led 2x6 spot pods today. I'll see how they shine in the morning. They were cheap. 4 for 50

    I'm tempted to tackle my suspension tomorrow after I get home. I should be home at noon, and need to be done by 4 at the latest. I'm wondering if I can get it done...
