    I remember seeing someone who had one of those neon underbody kits that those crazy lil' ricers love so much as rock lights. It looked pretty cool on a big burly offroad truck, but i can't for the life of me remember where or who? /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Just a thought. but actually i think they're rather expensive /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif so the tractor lights are probably your best bet.

    I've got 4 or 5 cheapo lights that I was going to put on for BB04. I was just planning on mounting them on the frame behind or in the the general area of the tires. Maybe one up front in the middle.

    Here is where mounted mine, just behind the front tires on the frame. They are made for fog lights but They work well. Get the tractor lights from Napa. You should be able to do your front and rear for less than $40.

    I am running 4 tractor lights I picked up at Napa. They are rubber armored and cheap. $10 each.

    I have 2 in the front 2 in the back. The ones in the back are bolted in the rear fenderwells. They are pointing down and back onto the tires.

    The fronts are a little different. One is facing down and forward (drivers side) and the other is facing down and back (pass. side) They are bolted threw holes that were already in the frame so I didn't have to drill new holes. They have worked well in the 2 runs I have used them for.

    The tractor lights from Napa are by far the best thing I have found for the money as of yet. They are a midrange bulb. Not spotlight, but not flood light. They are 55 watt and are kick arse. I believe the part number is #620.

    No upgrades yet. With my headlights and rock lights on at idle it does start to drop the alternator volts sometimes. When I stop for awhile on the trail I just turn off the rock lights and head lights and leave my marker lights on with the truck running. This helps charge the battery back up.

    My volts with headlights and rocklights on don't drop below 13 but it does draw down the volts some from when the lights are not on. The only time it actually starts to drop into the 12 range is when the brights and rocklights are on.

    My alt is out of a TBI SBC K5 so I may have a little more power then a alt from a carb truck. You can get a TBI alts that put out more power then carb alts that will bolt in. All you need to do is change the pully on the front from a serpintine to a v-belt pulley. That is what I did.

    I have been looking into a 104 volt stock alt from a TPI Z28 Camaro, but I am not sure if it will bolt in or not. I haven't found a place to stock one so I can look at it in person.
