Relays mounted.

First hood mounts I've seen.

Definitely different. What lights are they, and how'd you mount em?

These: Rugged Ridge Hood Mount Off Road Lighting Kit

They come with a bracket that bolts under the hood latch.

I used these: Rugged Ridge Windshield Light Mounting Brackets

Install was relatively easy.

Arctic, the hood mounted lights weren't too bad. The worst part is trying to get access to the nut that hols the hood latch. I removed the headlights to make it easier.

cavsvet74 that looks great and a nice wire job btw I thought I wanted windshield lights untill yesterday when I saw a new JK with a remote controll wireless 500.000 cp boat spotlight mounted where the light would go on the windshield piller bracket it looked too damn cool not to try myself and I checked on the spotlights at west marine you could do whole thing under $150.00 I wish I had my camera to snap a pic of it to show next time I will

They're long range/pencil beams. Only 55w, but thats plenty bright for my needs.
I'll try to get some night pics as soon as I get a chance.
