Arrow Rock Lights (Tantrum) = 1/2 way there...

Here ya go Matt. I only have the front done and if it warms up sometime soon I'll finish up the rear. I still haven't decided where I want to mount the rear. I have a couple of ideas I'd like to try before I permanently mount them.

So far they work as advertised. They're bright but not too bright where someone might lose their night vision while spotting you. They throw out plenty of light but not too much light.

A couple of observations though:

1. The adhesive sucks. If you think that that is all you need to mount them then you'll be disappointed. They need to be hard mounted with screws. I did have to drill the mounting holes on the lights to a larger diameter than they came with. Even the smallest screws I could find wouldn't fit without modifications.

2. The remote is handy but confusing as hell. It does something different every time I push a button. Press it once and you have a disco. Press another button you get a strobe. Press the first button again and they go solid. The same buttons never do the same thing twice. Maybe I'm getting old and can't figure it out but there's something more to it. They simply have too much going on with the remote control. It works but you have to have some patience with it.

I bought mine from Shaffers Offroad but it looks like they no longer carry them. Here's the website.

looks great scout! this is one of the mods on my list but not for awhile. I love the kitchen shots just another one we can use to our advantage . and one more thing... whats with the little rubber hairs on those tires, you really don't drive that beauty enough.

Those look good.. They are realy bright.. Not trying to hyjack your thread, but I found some really cool ones as well that I just installed..

They are a 1 ft strip of LED's..
I have them on the front and rear.. Just for fun, I put some green ones on the inside of my cage for some night fun.. Should look cool on the trail at night.
They make them in several different colors.

Here ya go. You scrolled too fast.

I'll see if I can find a close up pic of the lights. FYI - they're about two and a half inches in diameter.

I like yours and I like the idea of the green lights on the roll cage. Maybe I'll do something like that next.
