    So i have an older MM!, and i need some better lighting. I was thinking Intensafires, but they are mucho $$$$$$. Has anyone ever mounted any auxiliary lighting to the plow frame for additional lighting? Pics? Just seeing if this options is indeed cheaper and will do the job... j/c:mechanic:

    You're not too far from me! I have seen people add lights and it would be simple to just add some type of weather tight plug in the grille for them. However, the intensifires really are as good as they say and are a world of a difference over the traditional plow lights.

    yea. but you will need diamond 4x6 H4 conversion headlights so you can put the hids in and then you will need the HId kit off of DDM tuning. check this out another member did it but on a boss, same idea though http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=78482.

    yea but don't you need projector lenses to get the right amount of light focused on the road with the proper light pattern. Otherwise you just have a random light beam pattern and you light up the trees better than whats in front of u

    Yea and no for plow lights I think it would be fine. You can somewhat adjust them so the are at the right angle. If I didn't have the new lights I would put hids in. Many people have done it just Google HID lights plowsite, bunch of threads come up.

    thanx fish, I've been searching. I have found a few descent projector lenses. If they aren't too much $$ i may just do the conversion. I plow a lot of back country stuff with really no lighting other than my truck

    I wouldn't even get projector lenses cause without them the light is scattered and will light up more area.

    yes you can. Like Morrissey and durafish say, take your old lights off and sell them and buy the intensefires and bolt em on, it's the easiest and best way to get better lighting.
