Fog/dust lighting pic.

 2 - 20" dual row leds for the top,slightly angled from another.m The ones I got(import) are reconfigurable from flood/spot/flood to  flood/flood/spot pattern. I'll overlap the spots in the middle and have a wide flood area to each side-hopefully. Also planning on mounting the top led's back from the windshield to help minimize glare.  Seems right above the front roll bar area is not good even though the majority are mounted there. A bit further back is better,I guess. Been reading a bit about that.

but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."

i set mine all the way forward then moved them back until they didn't light up my hood and mounted. i mounted them in a sort of shallow v tying to do as you stated, it does help but since i am soooooo damn night blind wouldn't matter if i added 4 more i would still be out running my lights. i am going to pull one of my 20" rigids and my 6" one on the nose. going to drop to 1 two row 20" on the roof and move my 2 4" dually rigids down to the nose where the 6" is. the 2 4" rigid put out far far more light than the 6" chinese led. when my 2 twenty inch on the roof are on i can't even tell if the 6" is on at all. my 20" are flood spot flood

i see there prices went up....$600 when i bought them now $699

Well, since Rigids are assembled from Chinese parts, it's not really a surprise.

Ya,I'm at that point of trying to remember all the little stuff like that before I do that same thing. Hard to get everything.

DAMN! I found all kinds of stuff I had overlooked like system ground studs and flag tabs,antennae tab,deck for ignition/coil,a few missing dzus tabs,etc., damn!. I "think" I have everything on it now. Probably not though.  5:
