    I had a pair of KC HiLighters on my jeep. I am currently looking at some of the different LED brand light bars that I may be able to install in the front bumper in the slot just in below the grill.

    ...perfect timing on this thread @steve ..

    Interested to see what everyone has liked/disliked as far as lighting goes. My new toy will most likely end up with lots of lights on it, it'd be good to know whats out there!

    Maybe check out the Rigid D2 flush mounts. I'm trying to get my hands on a PDF template for those to see if they'll work in my front bumper.

    If I put a front end on my truck from a 03 GMC or up, I'll put some LED lamps in the slots of the bumper...just can't recall the name at the moment.



    If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar

    Bigger Amp Alternator | Electric Fans | Oil/Trans Fluid cooler | Re-done exhaust | Paint | Interior Restoration/upgrade with newer model stuff | Window Visors (In channel) | Tint | Low-Profile Tool Box | LEDs throughout stock cab locations | And whatever is spurr of the moment

    @aloxdaddy99, here's the dimension & mounting template for the Rigid D2 flush mounts if you're interested...

    Warning:
    The GMTC site stupidly auto-resized the image upon upload rather than leaving it alone. As a result, a print of the image will be smaller than the original; the dimensions noted on the image are, however, still correct, so you can do your own rectangle based on the noted measurements.

    Interesting timing on the thread. I don't offroad the Burb at all unless I'm trying to get to a fishing hole, but since I use the Burb in Emergency Response situations (I'm a member of the local ARES), Offroad lights probably would not hurt. Looking into getting a brush guard for the front of the truck and any lights I get will have to mount on that.

    But back to brands I've always liked ProComp lights because their inexpensive.
    I've never had a set of lights last longer than 6 months they either get broken or stolen so I really dont want to pay a lot for something I know I'll be replacing a short time later.
