    Just added 2 8" 150W lights on the brush guard... I think it came out pretty good... now I just have to align them correctly once it gets dark outside..

    Well the 130W that came with the lights were 300 000 candle power... but the guy on eBay included 4 150W bulbs so I guess they will be more than that... a heavy duty wiring kit, 2 50amp relays and a 50amp toggle switch was also included :)

    All for under $100 !!!

    I gotta get me some of those

    the ones I have now aren't very good... not to mention beginning to rust and I haven't even owned them for a year yet

    yeah I got a pair from Autozone, all chrome... what I did... I picked up a can of engine clear coat (high temp) and sprayed the lights with that before I installed them, this will keep them from rusting... everyone knows how the nice chrome quality is from Autozone :D

    they light up VERY well :) 340 000 candle power together with the 150W...

    Does anyone know if the battery/alternator would be able to handle 5 or 6 150W lights on the roof too??? haha

    Can It be done??

    I have a 2001 S-10 with an everstart battery from Walmart, and a stock 105 amp alternator. I have a total of 650 watts total lighting on my roll bar and it's held up for nine years like that, I am on my third battery and 2nd alternator but I don't think that's bad for that many lights and I use them all the time.

    On my Silverado I had about 800 watts of lights on it, roll bar and bull bar and reverse lights. I had the everstart battery with the stock 195 amp alternator, and I never had a problem with that setup for over 4 years but I just sold the truck and took all off all of the stuff off. I plan on putting all of this stuff back on my new truck, so no I don't think you'll have a problem as long as you wire it up right.
