Offroad Roof Rack Lights

I have finally mounted KC Daylighters to my Rola roof rack, after months of delaying! Using the KC tube mounts (found at http://www.kchilites.com/store/produ...--%237307.html) I very easy bolted the lights up there. I ran the wires securely down the weather stripping to the battery, switch, etc. The entire job took only about an hour and I think the lights look great. I plan on adding two more lights in the between the two already existing, just by splicing all the wires together. I will post more pictures if anyone is interesting in seeing the wiring route I used.

Re: Offroad Roof Rack Lights

Here are some nighttime pictures. The 4th picture is all of my lights on at once and the 5th picture is only the KC's. They are pointed far up the street, illuminating the car up the block.

Yeah that's the plan, I had stated that on my first post. I think it will look a lot better.

Re: Offroad Roof Rack Lights

That's fantastic, Now I think I have some leverage to get the wife to O-K it.

San Fernando Valley isn't too far away, I have some family in the Ventura area, (between LA and Santa Barbara) I think my name needs a change to NewBean.

--threadjack over.

Again, the lights look great, will really help out on the trails at night. look forward to seeing it with two more for even more blinding power.
