Have a basic grounding in the challenges associated with off-road lighting solutions, but am in need of some sound counsel ...
My desired end state is to run a three-tab bar of 100w Daylighters, and while I'm fairly certain that this is too much to ask of the OEM fog wiring (which was intended to handle 55w), I still just have to ask: what do you consider the max load that can safety/realistically be placed on the exisiting OEM fog light wiring? Two 55w road lights? Something more?
Let's assume that my three 100w Daylighters are well beyond the capabilities of the factory harness, and I'm going to be wiring things up conventionally. What would you consider the best possible configuration of forward lights (i.e. two long range and one flood, or two road lights and one long range, etc.)? I'd like a decent capability for basic trail work, but am not attempting to optimize strictly for open country or rock crawling, etc. Just want something that afford a better view of the terrain when in the back country.
Summary: You've got a three tab bar and your choice of KC's/Daylighters. Which configuration do you opt for, and how do you choose to wire it up?
Definitely appreciate your thoughts as I ramp up my own knowledge base.
