Thanks for you info. I like to wheel at night but more dusk than night. What would you suggest me buy? So many things so little money.

For night / dusk wheeling? Forward facing lights. At least one utility light facing back helps, as do side utility lights. And more forward facing
lights, and then some more. Some locales restrict the total # you can have uncovered. Then put another light or two facing forward.

I'll get you some pics of my rock lights they are great if you need someone to spot for you and they can't see your tires. I like them and they do serve a purpose while adding some sweet accent lighting

Like other poster said we call them rock lights and they can really help. Out in CA. at the high dessert roundup we did a poker run at night that was lots of fun and rock lights helped to see the big ones and even helped to spot the cans that had the cards in them. These days I would run LED lights since they don't draw much current and put out lots of light, also they don't get hot so they won't start any grass fires if that might be an issue. Just mount them so they will shine onto the needed area without being in a spot where they can hit something.

I just did the Walmart burner rock light install today. I think they look great. I took pics but cant upload them until tomorrow. I ran 4, two attached to the bolt in front of the front tire wells ans the other two in the last bolt hole under the jeep where the stock running boards attach, those need a 8x1.25 metric bolt. All of those are connected to a 30A relay and then to an LED switch I mounted on the drivers A pillar. Install was a pain but I took my time to hide every wire. As far as function, I know they will be used offload and make a diff. As far as looks, they are really cool. Total cost was probably $75. LEDs would have been a little more but I'm going to buy an sPod soon and will run to that. I say go for it if you will ever find yourself offload in limited light situations.

Seal up the vent holes or they'll fill with mud and you won't be able to get it out.

I sealed them with silicone to make sure no water got in.
