kbwwolf I posted this in a thread last month...links to several large, round LED lights:

There was a shootout article recently in Overland Journal, dealt with all sorts of different LEDs, how they work, how to determine what you need. All rigorously tested...

Some brands of the larger, round versions (*WARNING* some of these are expensive):

SilverMiner I like the look of these lights but dissapointed they are using leds that have been around for years, there are much brighter ones available. So I'm working on securing some similar lights using the new XM L2 leds in a 3x2 pattern like the D2s. 6000 lumens verses D2s at 2600 or something like that. Should be interesting. May be fabbung my own brackets too.

FDHog I used to have KC's on my front end, now I'm running Dually D2's Driving Beam and a Rigid 4" Spot Lightbar. More light than I need.

Sjeupie There's a swedish guy on the forum that has the D2's and the whole bunch of video's on youtube showing the difference between low beam, high beam and the D2 in a forrest during the night. Really convincing stuff! He has put the swith in a factory hole in the A-pillar as well btw. Looks great. Can remember his name though....

Hm nice. Anyone besides you experience with these? And what would be the difference between the 24V and the 12V?

Sgt93 My buddy mounted his light switch in one of the holes in the A-Pillar, looks great. I will do the same when I install mine.

Sierramadre Great looking mod. Looks factory installed.

I have them on their own switch. You can tap into your highbeams as the trigger.

Any ideas?
Replace the fuse. Sometimes the fuse may look good, but it is still dead. The odds of BOTH of your duallys crapping out are probably astronomical. It's something else. Maybe the switch, maybe the relay, etc.

Check the switch. There are 3 wires on it...power, ground, and trigger. If the trigger slipped off, the switch will still light up but the lights won't get power.

I couldn't agree more! I just added two more on brackets in front of the grill. This time with a flood light pattern.

Casotakar1229 rigids are also used for killing vampires and blinding zombies so you can shank them with a knife and not waste ammo.

I do like them, the look and the light output in such a small package, but don't know if I'd have a use for them unless they can be used as fog lights....

Thanks!
For me, going through fields and country roads, especially during deer season

Cudda The way I look at it is, if you have enough lights to angle in which ever direction you want light, why not go with the spots all around? That way you have long distance lighting at any field of view. To me the headlights will provide enough light for close range.

My plan is to get the Olympic or RR light bar for the stock bumper and run three dually spots. I think that would be more than enough light! I may also fab up some kind of bumper mount to put two more duallys under the bar... I know overkill but when I hit the lights I want it to be like the sun is coming up lol. Going to get three dually spots, the light bar, and ill go from there.

Right now I have the spots on my windshield. I am going to be ordering some more but not sure which ones to go with for the bumper. Also I see the spots shine out to 395m vs. the D2's at 298m. The D2's being twice the price I could get 4 of the spots for a pair of D2's. I want at least 3 so I feel the spots would be my best bet as far as price wise.

opinions, please!

I have the standard Dually spots on windshield brackets. Like you, I have been considering adding a second set to the bumper. I am leaning towards using a pair of the standard Duallys like I have on the windshield, but get either the hybrid flood pattern, or the diffusion pattern model instead of the spot. That way I can get very bright, but short distance illumination good for going down narrow roads and trails where I am not going very fast.

I like the idea of being able to have a lot of light with a wide field of view out to a distance of about 30 yards or so. The windshield spots give you distance. The floods give you a bright foreground. I think that would be a good combination.

I'll end up getting the D2's for my windshield and put those regular dually's on my bull bar. put up pics of that 10" bar either in this thread or start a whole new one, would love to see pics!
