    Do Not Buy Intensifires if you own a Dodge!!!!!!!

    I bought a set. The problem is with a Dodge you can no longer open and close your hood with the plow attached!!!!!. Fisher has no answer to this!!!!! So do not waste you money on them until they make an adapter for the Dodges..

    I'd say it's a little unfair to say no one should buy them just because there is a problem with your Dodge.

    Mick, have you been sniffing a little too much pine boughs:D This is a serious miscalculation on the part of Fisher:realmad:

    BigDave is it the attached grill the hits the back of the lights?

    Ok I changed my heading to just Dodges. But since you are a veteran And live in ME. Do you think that a set of lights that stop you from opening your hood during a snow storm would be completely useless???? I would think at least 50% of the times I have plowed I have had to open the hood to check something or add W/W fluid. But with the 2nd Gen Dodges you have the problem of snow building up your wipers. So the easy way to clear it all is to pop the hood and clear it all away. I can not speak for my newest Dodge since I have never plowed with it. But no matter what I want the ability to open and close my hood when I want.

    Ok. The thing is that when I responded, it wasn't aimed at just Dodges. Yes, I'd agree that anyone who owns a Dodge should be advised that there might be a problem and they should check it out.

    And I enjoy sniffing my pine boughs:D .

    They Just know, You should plow with a real truck. A GM.

    Joking aside, that is a oversight big time. I would not want that at all my self. is it the lights the grill hits. or the cross bar?

    Yes the grill hits the lights. That would be a huge oversight if it the crossbar. These lights are huge and nice and bright. I hated the older smaller size ones. So when these came out I couldn't wait to get a set.

    I just picked a set up yesterday to install this weekend on my Ford. I hate to say it, but you may have to keep the old style. With these being a composite system, they will be deep. I don't think a relocation bracket would work either as if they are moved forward they may interfere with the lifting of the plow (Triangle). How much room do you need to gain? Chris

    I'd love to get the new lights, but can't see dropping the $230 that my dealer wants with the mounting bracket. How is the light output on these?

    A GM(guarnteed malfunction), nonsence. Put a Fisher on a GM and the front of the truck just sinks, and the plow just stays.

    Dodge Intensfire Lights

    Good afternoon gents....
    I am a tech at a local dodge dealer. we encountered the same problem with the new plow lights. we just fabbed a quick bracket out of some plate steel that moves the lights out about 1.5 inches. It looks great ,and have had no complaints from the customers.
    good luck

    Wow, a constructive response! There's the solution right there. I'll just ignore the ignorant GM comments.

    Yeah that is what I was going to try. Use the 2 holes on the MM2 frame to bolt down plate. and then drill a couple more out towards the head lights
