Returned the cheap looking 5" lights I had and picked up two of these today. They look like an exact knock off of the classic chrome 6" kc daylighter. And at $15.00 a piece are a really good deal I think.

Not a bad deal. Hopefully they aren't too deep for that bar!

Not if you paint em in clear coat inside and out. I had ones just like it and they were bright as hell and didn't rust out.

yep if ya clear them you'll be ok. now bright as hell, what were you comparing them to? if ya havent run some long range driving lights at 7"+ and 100W+ alot of stuff looks bright as hell.

for the price, you wont get any better though, just sayin there are some nice units for not much more. I remember my nightvision lights, those things were blinding. its unfortunate that they went so far my camera couldnt pick up the object they hit with light.

Just bought and sanded 2 of them after reading this tread. Got some black lacquer because chrome just wouldn't go with my truck. Spraying them tonight. I'll post picture when they're done.

My friend bought 4 7'' nightvision spots from princess auto for $25 each.. non of these can be even remotely compared to a big $$ light but unless you have a trophy truck these are bright enough.

I have a 6" GROTE light that cost me $35 at lordco and it out lasted my more expensive KC daylighters lol

I might clear coat them sounds like a good idea. And I mean even if they rust after a couple of years Not like I am out a whole lot of money anyway.

Hell PA has such a good return policy that they might even let me exchange them in a couple of years if they rust.

On nights this week at work so I might get them on soon if I am not too tired.

This was my solution to help the lights fit.


They stick out a little past the bar but not too bad.
