Pic of new Hankook's & Hood/Light Rack

Just installed my new hood rack and light bar. I used it at the beach last weekend and it worked great. I angled the side two lights out and put them on a separate switch to illuminate the side of the trails (and to piss off beach campers ) I've had the Hankooks for about a month. Absolutely no complaints.

That looks really cool! I'm thinking about mounting a high lift on my hood. How much were the brackets?

The rack, light bar, lights, brackets, and basically everything else you need, all comes together from Quadratec for a little over $100. It's really a great deal when you compare it to some other options and I think it looks just as good if not better. The lights are VERY bright.

Yea, that was a bit pricey to me too. The one in the catalog is by Delta I think.

Just go to Quadratec and search for Tough Stuff. You'll see the hood rack for 99.00 and the light kit for 74.99.

Have you had any problems with visibility? From the pics in both the catalog and in the one you posted it looks like it might obstruct your vision over the hood a little.

Even with the shovel and/or jack mounted on top I can see without any problems. The only problems I have had were: 1.deciding where to put the switches & 2.one ground wire on an outside light shook loose and the light went out (but that was fixed with a 1/4 turn of the wrench)
