    right now i have a light bar on my roof, and it had 4 6"ers up there, and i didnt particulary like it, so i switched to 4 3x5"ers, and still dont like it, and i think they actually look better on pickups...so my plan is, i`m going to be painting my cap, taking off the spoiler, and then maybe lose the light bar, and bedline the front and rear bumpers, then just mount the lights to the front bumper? i can get pics if you want to see how it looks.....yay or nay?

    If you don't have enough light to see what you're doing for the kind of driving that you do, add more lighting. If you have enough light, then don't add more lighting.

    id move it to the bumper. on trails, big branches could easily mess those up.

    good point....they are actually not hooked up at the moment, but they will be soon(just put them on)....and even when i had the big 6"ers, i never really used them...i would think, being down on the bumper, i could use them without lighting up the roofs and attics of peoples houses:D

    I'll be happy to take those 6"ers off your hand. :)


    EDIT: Are those racing stripes on your hood new? If they are I'd like to see more of em.

    i agree they will get torn off or just be a pain on the trail. keep the lights though, mount them underneath for "rock lights" or "fix your stuff at night" lights (in my case at least) :-)
