    Another awesome product! I wish I could use one of these. I would love to have one on the back of my Leer shell. I've been wanting to add back up lights the rear. The extra back up lights would help out tremendously when mounted that high up and eliminate the need for adding back up lights to the bumper, etc.

    @mesojdm any future plans to make one for shells?

    Perplexed as to how the hell my third brake light lens cracked. Any pointers on dropping a headliner?

    Honestly I only dropped the back part of the headliner. Obviously by removing the hangers, the grab handles, and top part of pillar

    Me too. That’s all that’s really needed.
    Oh, and some small arms. Just be careful to prop the headliner so it doesn’t bend too much and crease the middle

    Yes I agree careful with creasing the headliner. Easiest way for me just open the little window and put your arms/hands through there.

    New concept looks great! Love the downward tilt of the outer lights!

    This isn't the light for me, but I kinda miss the third light in the middle. With as big as the bump is, would upright allow for 3 center? Looking at the mounting, I'd guess not. That really eats at the available space.

    Maybe a 2nd Gen version with the outer lights facing rearward like the center two, for us desert guys that want dust lights too?

    I agree with you. IMHO the KC Cyclone version looks a lot better. It just looks so much more complete and more aesthetically pleasing.

    The new BD lights have SO much wasted space in the body (bezel, box, frame, etc) of the light.

    EDIT: This not something that is or was under control of @mesojdm . As always he has done an unbelievably great job designing around the changes and improving his original design in the process.
