Rigid Industries D2 lens covers

Hey guys,

I just picked up a set of D2s for my wrangler and am curious about the lens covers.

In the description it says to: "add the Amber light cover to your lights for improved visibility in snow or fog."

If the Amber light covers improve visibility in snow and fog, what are the benefits of adding the other colored covers?

Do they also serve a special purpose or are they merely for aesthetics?

I'd like to hear your thought on this.

Gene, sorry for getting back too you a little late. Its been a while since I got your I got your message.
but here it goes. I hope to answer some of your questions. The zombie thing with the lights is just for fun.

I added the green lens covers. FYI… They say zombies hate green light and neutralizes their attack instinct.
… but I really added the green covers because I like the way green lights up the road and the trails.

"I'm curious to see how far the bracket mounts the light away from the windshield. Also, do you have any issues with glare off the hood from the lights being mounted so low?"
Thanks again,
Gene

Once the lights are mounted on the Delta brackets, the lights at the bottom are 2 inches away from the windshield and the top of the light is 2 1/2 away from the windshield… even if you try to move the light up as much as you can the light will never touch the windshield.

What I like about the Delta aluminum brackets is that they will never create rust unlike the Poison Spider bracket that I used to mount my 10 inch combo Rigid light.
You ask about the glare of the hood, since the light are mounted too close off the hood you will get the glare. It does not bother me any because the light themselves are super bright and light up the road or the trail with no problems.
I will post some different pics so that you can see the glare reflect off the hood.




Hope this helps… The last picture does no justice to how bright the D2 driving lights really are and how far they really light up the road. FYI the last picture only has the D2 light on… the headlights are off and so is the 10 combo bar.

I will post some other pics on the next post.

with the green covers on.


with the green covers off.


Sorry the pictures have some extra dim light reflection…. I am using my iPhone which has a cover… I'm guessing thats what is causing the light bar and the D2s to show some extra dim reflection of the light units.

Current project…. Installing a Rigid Industries 6 light rock light kit. I already found a place to install the fuse box… now I need to find the perfect spots to mount the led pods.


I know, I've already been told to clean the engine bay….

I have the amber covers (mainly to tie the front together. I think they match the turns/running lights and side markers well). I will be picking some green ones up as well.

I will also be getting he Amber lens covers.
I bought the lens covers on quadratec.com the front light bar and the rock lights came from northridge4x4.com and the pair of D2s came from amazon.
I try to look for the deals, either I call in or check on line for the lowest price.
