    sup guys. I am looking to upgrade my camp lighting -- I'm building a new swingaway system for my rear bumper and want to put a camp light on there for cooking and stuff. How is the output from the cyclone? What does the spread look like?

    I was thinking about building an extendable bracket that held it in place facing downwards to act as a lantern/streetlight style light for camp, kind of like this:

    The Cyclone is a great light for that purpose. They are more of an area/flood light than anything else and for the price, have really good output. I think that's a great idea and would love to see the final project!

    I installed a 10" light bar over the weekend, I may do a review and write up once I have both installed. If I do, I will also post some snow photos with the lights at night.

    I have some 4" round LZRs to do next. I am just working out some bugs on those. :)

    Love it! I really like how it is the same size as the license plate... just one of those minor details that is so aesthetically pleasing haha

    That was why I went with the 10".


    I have had a few folks ask about mounting there...

    Here is what I used for the mount: Cascadia4X4-Flipster-lite-mount. They show off a small set of KC Flex on their site, its a pretty cool set-up if you have a winch and like aesthetics. :thumbsup:


    if you want a plate that flips up, I believe you will need either the other kit (that comes with it, or you will need to order their flip mechanism. (Just reach out to them if you have questions they have pretty good customer service also)

    Some fun photos from our most recent camping trip last weekend! Can you tell that we're Toyota guys here? Haha.

    Anza indeed! I've been visiting our LA office for a couple weeks so we snuck in a camping trip (basically two events - one with CORVA and one with SoCal Overland) while I am here. But yes, my new home is in our Williams, AZ office.

    Nice! How is the weather out there? I am looking to get back soon. There is a really cool spot to camp out of fish creek wash. So much fun to cruise around there. Need to test the new suspension.

    @Taylor@KC HiLiTES i have one open switch blank left, thinking about running your 28” chase light on a bed rail clamp. Would it be possible to run a T-Harness off my factory trailer wiring to get my power and signal or will I need to wire it differently? If that will not work, also thought about rock lights under truck or G34 lights BEHIND the grill. Any ideas ??

    40192B9F-3E77-48F4-95E9-A46ED23A4F17.jpg About to pull the trigger and upgrade my fogs and light bar. Right now I have a 32” no name light bar on caliraisedled stealth mount brackets. My question is would the c30 fit them too? Is anyone running that setup? I haven’t been able to locate a picture here of anyone with a stealth mounted kc light bar. The fogs I’m going with are the kc gravity g4s btw. Here’s my truck now

    Chances are you will need to enlarge the mount Ting holes. The KC bar comes with some good size mounting bolts on it.

    I've got one steath mounted on my 16

    That’s no problem... are you using caliraised mounts?
