Windshield lights?
 
I am looking for lights that mount on the hood by the corners. I want them to be square or box style. Any recommendations?

So, here goes the big war...again:atomic:
Before you dump a huge amount of cash (or load your credit card),
check out Black Box Logistics. They make an excellent product, and
at a price that will not put your card in melt down mode.As an added bonus, the customer service is excellent.:happyyes:

For what it's worth (hear me out here), my dealer has the Rigid D2's in stock packaged as Mopar spot lights. I bought a pair, but here's the kicker: Mopar has them boxed and priced as the original Dually's (D1) so I saved nearly $200 on them. Just a thought, might be worth checking with your dealer.

Very nice ... I prefer Rigid as I live in Phoenix so they are local. and the Quality is outstanding ... you get what you pay for.

Raiderfan001 11-06-2013 09:47 PM

I have the Rigid Dually D2s but have heard good things about these as well. I haven't seen them in person but they look very similar and about half the price...

I went this way too Black Box Logistics - RX Series



3" RX2 Series Square LED Driving Light (Pair)





Used Smittybuilt windshield brackets. They keep the lights low to the side, not a distraction while driving. Almost out of sight from the drivers seat.






And this finished product looks like this

With them on at night, that's the pic in my Sig.

How's this for the ones on the windshield mounts?

I just got the BBL RX2's last night. (spot's)
Touched off to the battery and they are Bright!
could see it on the Neighbor's house across the street about 400 feet away.
Not bright on the house, but you could see it lighting it up.
The road in front of the house was well lit at about 100 feet.
I might mount them to the second bolt down on the outboard side of the windshield frame with only the bracket that came with them.

I'll know later tonight.

I have the Seward Twin-T2 floods mounted on the A-Pillar. Cost was half or less of Rigid and the output is amazing.

I mounted them on A-Pillar brackets that are produced for Seward by Pat Harrison (traliskinz.com). The brackets support the A-Pillar mounts, a 50" Twin light bar and the Limbriserz cables (which raise trees as you are driving through the bush). The brackets are beautifully done.

I have the floods aimed slightly outward for peripheral visibility off-road but you can also get the T-2's in spot as driving lights.

Here are a couple of pics:

I got the switch installed into the A=Pillar Trim. Found a spot to tap into the fuse panel. Did a Test fit. I waiting on Brackets so I tried one here. Give two axis of rotation (where as on the windshield base only gives one axis and with the sweep they aim to far outboard. )
Pay no attention to the temp wiring. this is so I could test it.
The blue tape is to hold the nuts into the light. wouldn't need to do that if i had the normal type of brackets.
Not sure if I'll keep them here or go with the Windshield brackets.

I am more leaning towards round leds wish they had smaller ones like the the square.

Mr Bill 12-17-2013 10:44 AM

Anyone using low-outside windshield KC mounts #7317?
I had planned on Rigid driving lights LED #50231 ($290 on Amazon) but am now considering Black Box comparable.
