    The stock Sabres are updated with Sylvania white bulbs and I installed a set of Hi Lite Daylighters as auxiliary lights.

    Man they shine. I have them angled properly for saftey if I need to use them on the road and I know they may kick back some light in a storm but they really add a lot of good quality light.

    100 bucks for the daylighters and 35 for the new bulbs in the stock lamps.

    Dang I bet those are bright! I have a set of lights mounted in my grill for extra light. But those look pretty good and i bet you can light up quite a bit at night.

    Did you run them off of the highbeams going to the plow lights or run a seperate line which is switched in your cab?

    I'd like to see a close up of them mounted on the plow upright.

    Thanks

    I switch everything on a separate quality switch and relay including the reverse lamps I installed.

    Its pouring or Id snap a pick but they basically mouted right below (and as close as I could to the original lamps) on the downtube which is sortof an angle iron type deal 1/4" thick. I marked em up and drilled holes.

    These lights come with a shock/rubber mount but have a metal cap at the end of that that provides a flat surface for mounting.

    Theres a half inch shaft that connects it all and its fully adjustable in any direction like your plow lights.

    Since I mounted them on the downtubes and they are at an angle I hade to move the actual lamp inside the housing to 90 degrees but that only took a few minutes as well.

    Its a great system from KC Hilites for a hundy and that includes the wiring harness, relay, switch, all that.

    If these sabres ever give me a problem, all Id have to do is take them off and move the good lamps to the top of the tower, or.....if any of you guys are thinking of upgrading...these are a great replacement light instead of the stock plowlights.

    They are not road legal.....but who cares.
