Re: Opinions on Lights behind grille

Lol! Now that would be hard to fit behind that grille. I'm thinking two on the second slits of the grille on either side then one in the middle.

Re: Opinions on Lights behind grille

How about 22 inch LED Bar right in the middle? Nice spot/flood pattern. I'm joking but that would be something I have not seen yet.

Sounds like a good plan. I have seen the HID conversion on the black magics. A lot of work but it looks real nice.

I had VHT on mine for a bit, but I only had the stock 55w bulbs. I took it off when I upgraded to 100w. It did hide them pretty well, but also did hinder the output.

I really want to do it. But I just don't want to make the front of my jeep look stupid. I have the 6 inch daylighters so it can fit the bigger HID bulb. The complicated part will deffinatley be the wiring.

Re: Opinions on Lights behind grille

I don't know if you considered the airflow or not as well. Two isn't so bad, but 3 may start to restrict

Re: Opinions on Lights behind grille

I'm not too worried about it on the v6. There will still be plenty of room for air to flow by the lights. And there is tons of room between engine and fan.
