    Does anyone else here have a problem with the lights(plastic) breaking whenever the plow trips?
    I have gone through 3 sets of lights. Getting annoying,and expensive.
    Is there a solution to this?

    What is breaking? The plastic trim ring, or are the screws pulling out/breaking the plastic they are screwed into?

    Use longer screws to get more holding power of the plastic light bucket. Predrill so you dont crack it further.

    I just thought of this, and haven't tried it but it makes sense. Why not go buy a swaybar end link kit and use the bushings out of it. Drill the mounting hole slightly larger to allow the bolt to move with the bushings, and I would think that it would help absorb the shock. Just an idea. :salute:
