Windshield lights. Love 'em or hate 'em?

Windshield lights, the ones on each side of your windshield, do you love 'em or hate 'em?

Are they an annoyance when driving? You already have a narrow view from the windshield as it is, at least compared to driving a full size truck.

Thoughts?

I love mine, but I have a set of LED blocks, I have them sitting on RR windshield mounts which make them sit lower then the others

I mounted some KC Daylighters on my rig. 20/20 hindsight, I wish I'd gone with Rigid Dualys in the first place. As far as the KC lights go, I really like them but I didn't like how much they blocked from the corner of my windshield. I relocated them to the bumper and put D2s in their place. (the pic of the KC light is larger than the one of the D2 but you get the idea)

I like em, doesn't block view at all. Would be nicer to have some small LED s but these were on when i bought it so not spending more....

I really like mine as well. They don't block much view, although LEDs would be nicer.

I have brackets to mount my lights up by my windshield but the bolts holding the windshield seem to be rusted fast. I hit them with the impact drill with no luck. There is no way to get wd40 on them to bust the rust. And ideas?

switches for accessories. probably for beastmaster's fog lights on the bumper, the a-pillar and any thing else he wired with a switch!

I did the same...started out with the KCs, and later swapped em out for the Rigid Duallys.

KC SlimLite 100w Super White Driving Lights:



Rigid Dually LED lights:



Doesn't seem like it'd make much of a difference, but the KCs caused a pretty significant blind spot when I was making left-hand turns across lanes of traffic. I hardly even notice the Duallys...
