Four 100w off roaders

Mounted some lights up using info I found here on Ranger forums.

I used square tubing.

Repainted ultra flat black. Painted the bar and brackets too.

Mounted on the bar.

And done.

Yes they are the cheapo Harbor Freight.

Yes I used relays.

For the money, they work great.

awesome install. those rock guards really do make a difference, i've heard of a ton of people who didn't like the look, and they've ended up breaking some glass.

Nice!

I didn't realize those lights were that shallow.

Thanks everyone. I thought I would catch hell for using Harbor Freight lights. I will get a couple more pics now that its daylight again.

Those are the ones. The in store price was less.

On every pic I have seen the angle iron was used. I wanted to be different. The square tubing puts the lights just a bit higher. Also there are 1/4" spacers between the brackets and the bar.

I did not like the switches that came with the sets, so I went to Vatozone and picked out one I liked.

I love the light bar you made! However I'm partial to the beefyy look of the brush guard. I think I'm going to get the back rack and a brush guard. Two lights on the guard and 4 on the back. But how did you run your wires threw the firewall? Is there a pre existing hole or did you run them threw the door jam? And also how did you run the wires threw to the lights on the bar on the back?

Thanks. Its just some square tubing with some holes drilled. Some angle brackets that bolt into existing holes in the bumper. I found the instructions here on this site.
