Lightforce puts out a ton-o-light....and I aint kidding. Been running them since 1999 on my Durango. Best light period..(IMO obviously)

hey man, I basically just pulled the HUGE plug from the back of the light(It's more to the bottom of the ligth, quite easily accesable when the front bumper is off), had my "appie" - nephew switch the lights on and off and took it from there measuring each and every one. The one tht I did use at the end was the only one that ticked to 12v when on, then 4v when off and 0 when the jeep was switched off with a waiting time of about 60 seconds. I didnt note witch cable i ended up using.

I honestly think the 240's would have been to big for my use, but DAMN these 170's are superb!!. in total I want 3 more on the roof, and 2 extra on the front.

Re: Winch and Spots fitted!!

Zombi - Regarding the Headlight Washers, the requirements are the headlights have to be on and then depress the washer stick. They slide out pretty far. They don't do it every time. I haven't figured out the interval but it's some where around ever 3 times or so that you depress the windshield washer.

The RRO looks great btw!!!

Do you have access to the clutch on the winch or do you just "motor" the line out?

Sweet, thanks man!! You know what I am going to do when I get home hey!....


Thanks

No access to the Clutch, If needs be I will motor out the cable, the point for the controller is aslo at the top, not in the front as I didn't want to cut the grill. Unluckily no pictures of that, but if you look at the assembly pictures it should give you a clear indication of where I have it now.

No prob! Can you see the top of the lights from inside the cab?

Also, do you plan on mounting anything on the extra bar?
