Thought I already posted this but I guess not. Found these lights at Northern Tool and so far theyve worked great. Theyre LED's and give off a nice white light.

Not as bright as the Dually's but theyre also only $40 each.

I attached them to the back of my ARB rack and ran the cables through the rack tubing. They hook in directly the the reverse lights. I have a switch to attach to them but havent gotten around to it yet.

I hear ya Mike. Its easy to just go out and spend hundreds of dollars but the trick is to find an affordable way of accomplishing what you want. Thats how I see it anyways. Ill see if Ive got a pic around here somewhere.

Any reason why these could not be used up front...

Theyre more of a flood light. They work great in the back, when I only need to illuminate a relatively small space while backing up but I feel they wouldnt really do a whole lot up front. Technically though, I guess they could go anywhere.

I think I want a single strip LED light for the front. One that goes from mounting point to mountinh point on the brush guard. Like the Vision X lights...but hopefully much cheaper.

Ah I see. I think that would look good. I've seen some LED bars on eBay for pretty cheap and I seem to remember them having good warranties too.
