    Well someone gave me the idea today about backing up people seeing you backing out of a drive. And it hit me that i had no side light on my arse end. Soooo, i remember seeing a while ago someone who did something like this. So i thought i would try it. And it works out really well. 1 of the leds pointing to the side is covered by the other one, but its still BRIGHT.

    They are 2 sound off led3s on each corner. I like sound offs led3s better than whelens tir3s. I think their a lot brighter and about 1" smaller.

    So far i have 2 whelen lin6 on the front, 4 sound off led3 on the back, and whelen mini justice on top. BUT i still have more to add :D

    Since I see you are also a little crazy too

    Might I suggest vision xmitter backup lights. 3400 lumens each for the 12in x 2 in strip.

    Just ordered the 4" version. I am gonna see how they do. If they work good i'll put the 4" on the backup truck and order the 12" one for my truck :bluebounc

    I'll do a write up when i get it in.

    12 inch xmitter

    Who did you get it from and how much did you pay? I got mine for $350 for the 12 inch. I have one wired to the backup lights now and matt from blueline is mounting the other 2 for a total of three this week wired on a switch.

    I like it. It is the kind of super bright I was lookng for. I am sure you will be happy.

    Best regards,
    ted

    Tucking those Sound Off modules in there like that is a good use of what would otherwise be "empty space." Should protect them pretty well, too. Well done. :salute:

    But that idea just bumped up the amount I'm going to be shelling out for lights on my truck. ;)

    The 12 inchers are on sale @ http://www.visionxonly.com/12-Inch-LED-Xmitter-Bar.html?m7:item=XIL-200s&psid=kb-o729jLqj964rCGKlQ

    He has them for 399 on the site but somebody else has them for 350 and he will match the price I bet. He was a great guy to work with the was very informative. Give him a ring and I am sure he will hook you up.

    The single 12incher that is there now is brighter than my headlights. I am very happy with them. I cannot wait to see the three.

    Yep they are from oznium. i have 3 green, 2 red, and 5 cool white of their floods. They work extremely well. I wouldnt say extremely bright. But they are freaking bright! You do NOT want to look at them.

    Im putting the green ones under the dash to light the floor boards, 2 of the whites went in the 3rd brake light, 1 of the red went in there too. 1 of the whites i am using for my dome light. And holy crap does it light up the cab. Waaaaay brighter than that crappy led dome stuff you buy at autozone. I bought one for the adapter, and the oznium blows it out of the water. I havent quite decided what im gonna do with the rest. I might put them in the 3rd brake light on the other truck. It is a HUGE upgrade to lighting up the bed. I might put one under the hood.

    They are flood lights, so about 6' to 8' of full coverage. But it lights it all up perfectly. I just wish they were a tad bit smaller. But they need the heatsink.

    Oh and the company is great too. One of the lights didnt work when i got them. They shipped me out another one the next day. Didnt even ask for the old one back. What they dont say, is they are 1w leds.

    Oh and i finally figured out what im doing with the soundoff mighty lights. They were made for alley lights. So their gonna on the light tower as alley lights :D Im just waiting on the second one.
