    So I finally got the lights and custom installed them myself! These are the harbor freight ones and the video explains the rest! Let me know if you have any questions!!!

    nice video i got one suggestion for you though. i would angle them all in a tiny bit so that way you have one continuous beam formed by all four of them instead of four separate ones.

    Yea they are pretty good for $27 a pair!

    I was thinking about doing that but then they wouldnt be as wide. Right now they are separated just enough so there is still light filled in between each of them

    OK my opinion, nothing more…

    I am not trying to be an @ss but two things.
    1) Where are your relays, one for each two lights; I would not want to run full powered wires into my cab.
    Yes nice to have both lines fused and it is needed but it needs to go to pin 30 on a relay then out to the lights.
    The switches can be low powered fused switches/lines because a relay needs minimal amperage to activate.
    Please add two relays to your circuit.

    2 Aiming of the lights, as stated in above post.
    They need to be closer together, the gap between them is too big.

    Good job on the Mounting Bar and the overall setup, good wiring practices.

    Thanks! I am going to put relays on them... As for the gap, it's better in person because the extra light fills the gaps (it isnt picked up on the camera sensor)...

    no! the way he has it is how i have it and if u aim them just right like he has it the will form one long flat beam of light. which is better to see at night with giving off more area to see what is in front and around u. mine even shine to the left and right of my truck and its like a crazy blinding ray of light.

    thats what i was saying he should do. thats how i have mine set up. in the video it looked like his was to far apart and it didnt form one continuous beam.

    Exactly... I tried them out in the snow last night and the beams look awesome! This video shows it better: [ame][/ame]

    Only problem now is I was submerged above the headlights in icy water for a few seconds and there is moisture in the lights... Now I need so advice on how to fix this...

    Watched the video, liked it, like then snow ride with all of the bushes hanging, sweet.

    BUT... I would not be too happy with the lights, too many spots; you can still see the four spots.

    Again, if it was me I would focus the four lights closer together. Or get different beam types to fill in the spaces.

    Great video.
