Windsheild base lights? Headache Rack lights? Lets see 'em

I'd like to have a higher mounted light on my truck at some point. Something like Jeeps run at the base of the windshield, I'd do a light bar if i had to. But of course that's more money/time.

Let's see any home brewed setups! Thanks-

Have you thought about just saving up for a few of those Kragen HID lights? I bet if you put those on your bumper instead of the ones you have now they would probably make more light than the lights you have now including more of them on the roof.

it's not the light output that's my problem, it's the location of the lights. Being how hilly it is, it'd be nice to have lights higher up, angled up so when you are on a decent, you can see what's up higher.

The HID's wouldn't be a bad idea, but the lights i have cost $50 for all four, and aren't too bad. But before i did that, i'd spend the $100 and just put HID bulbs in my current lights...Instead of buying another set of lights and having four new ones just hanging around.

True, that makes sense. I'm used to Florida which as you know isn't known for it's hills lol. $50 is a good deal for those lights, I didn't realize they were that cheap.

not the highest quality light, but it works for my budget! I actually just bought 5 130w H3 bulbs off ebay for $20. Thats like adding another 120w light to my current 4. That should handle whats ahead and a bit to the side of me pretty well.

Goody....


Ever since I got my 99+ Super Duty fender/hood CB antenna mount, i've always had the thought of running a Driver side and Pass side antenna mount, and running slimlites on them.....no holes in visible areas of the body...only thing i'd think of is visibility from inside the cab...

might take it a look...

OR...

Unity makes LH and RH A-pillar spot light mounts for our trucks....could get pricey fast, but is the cleanest way to get it done...(something i've ALWAYS wanted to do to my truck ever since seeing RockinRobin's over on the old G-E)...
