Bring me from the Dark Side....
So, here's the setup and the need:
Back country roads. One lane each way. Will be running on a combination of pavement, hard pack sand, gravel and potholes. Towns with no streetlights. People riding bicycles at night. WWD (drunk pedestrians walking aimlessly at night). No nighttime trail driving. Mostly DD use, but many trips at night on the roads (back and forth from dining out and bars). Not too many cars around, so menacing other drivers with brightness is not really an issue.
Clear nights, except when it occasionally rains, and then it comes down by the bucketfull.
Welcome to Belize!
JW Speakers will be going on in place of stock headlamps; that's a start.
I'm not sure what type of lighting I need for the above application. Is a 40" lightbar overkill? Do I just need dually's on the hood and a 20" on the bumper?
Please give me your thoughts from those who actually have experience with the above, because I don't know what I need. This isn't about money; its about best quality lighting
The invention of the flamethrower suggests that someone once thought "I'd really like to set that group of people over there on fire, but I just don't have the equipment to get the job done"
