    I decided to be like every other overlander ever and put multiple fogs in a hybrid. Don’t know if I like it, and may put the S1 on each side of the prinsu as scene lighting.

    Looks great Rand! You should leave it like that.

    Here are the scene lights I'm looking at. They're not big names but I like how the light is diffused.

    MICTUNING RV Exterior LED Porch Utility Light 12V 750LM Each Replacement Lighting for RVs Trailers Campers Pack of 2 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RZW1CPH/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_jBd-DbJ9BKDSN

    The price is right too.

    I've been eyeballing those too. I had the idea to get 4 and mount two on each side of the prinsu, and if they die they can individually get replaced with rigids

    I'd honestly be willing to go with a RGB version so I could try red when the bugs are bad. I feel like wiring them to the main switch hub then with individual toggle switches near them would also allow for you to choose how much light you want/need. Leave them all on so a single push turns them all on at once, then pick. So at this price, on a double cab, why not have 3 per side. Setting up and breaking camp or during a trail emergency and you use all 3. For mood lighting sitting around bullshitting and you might only need one. Another benefit of less lumens is less heat and less draw.

    I'll check around before I jump though.

    Are they LED? LED's don't attract bugs as much as incandescents or halogens.

    The bugs here on the east coast will fly into an open flame! I have an orange led in the fixture by the back door. Every year I have to open it up and empty the bugs out. All any kind of light here does is allow the bigger bugs and frogs to see and eat the little bugs.

    That too. My interior lights are red and it's true. It's definitely better than white light, at least for me. I figure worst case, I'll just get some red acrylic and add it as needed when the time comes.

    But not any bugs apparently. The state bird of Pennsylvania is the mosquito, and I am only 3 miles from the line.

    Scientifically speaking, Cyan (aka blue-green) is the best color for functional dark adapted vision. I'll spare you the rest of the scientific mumbo-jumbo about rods and cones, rhodopsin, and G-protein coupled receptors. It's enough to get you through a round of Jeopardy!

    Hence the reason Navy CIC's are always blue:
