    I know it's not about strobes but I wasn't sure where to ask...

    I'm looking to get "bright" led work lights for under the bumper of my truck. I'm sick of replacing the glass ones in the rubber casing. The LEDs are so expensive, I want to make sure I get what I want the first time. Any help or suggestions are welcome.

    Been using the soundoff leds for 4 years ,have them on all of my trucks , buy the ones u can afford ,if u got it ,buy the larger watts, u get what u pay for, I have some 500, and they are plenty , but also bought some of the greater watts and they rock. Bought plenty of the so called good lights at the auto parts store and spent enough for the repairs and replacements just to buy the good ones first. The firsts one I bought they didn't have silicon around the wires on the back and they leaked, The warranty them. All are sealed really good know. Heres a link ,good warranty,no questions.U wont be disappointed . Fellow plowsite member turned me on to these, hes got pics up showing them, last year I think.

    You might be able to get away floods down low but I mounted a set on my back rack and while they seem brite they do not get much light to the ground seems to get washed out Some companys make a work pattern which is a combo spot/flood i'd look into something like that

    Well gents, thanks for all the suggestions! I did pick some up today. I like to be able to buy now in my hands and go. I stopped by Tucks Trucks which is also the local Fisher dealer.
    They had some cheapie lights and some good ones. I picked the ones I thought were the best for my money and I am quite pleased. They were 145.00 discounted to 110.50 out the door only because I haggled a deal. I had just spent 400$ there a week before and he knows ill be back.

    They are 9 led 1500 lumens each. The other thing that sold me was the aluminum housing and stainless hardware. It felt like a sturdy light.

    The old lights I had in the same spot but bolted to the lower lip of the bumper. I felt these hung down to far in that location so I drilled two new holes in the 1/4" steel bumper support bracket that is just above the bottom lip of the bumper. The bracket is all hidden and just the square part of the light hangs down. And the lights are supported in back by the hitch in case I should smash a snowbank.

    Prior to reading this I ordered these. I'm actually going to put them directly into the rear bumper itself, so they don't hang down... for backing into snow piles reasons...

    I just did this to my truck. So worth it. How much did you pay for those ? I only have 12 diode ones.
