    I have a meyer hoop that somebody has cut the old metal brackets of on both sides for the headlights to mount to. I have the universal truck light headlight kit and 1-1/2- 1/4 inch band to bend and make the new ones. I am running a meyer c 8.5 plow so. I am not sure if anybody has any good pictures or some detailed measurements so I can make these brackets later today or tomorrow.
    Thanks in advance

    I understand the pictures are there. I am looking for some measurements and reference points so I know the high like laying a straight edge across top of hoop how high are the lights from there up measured to bottom of lights. Also from center of hoop out to the center pin of lights is how far on each side.

    If you're looking for Meyer Classic Mt Hoop measurements I have couple behind my shop and I can help you out in the morning when the sun is out.

    I assume these are the dimensions you're looking for.

    The height of the light mount varies between the 2 hoops I have.

    Okay thanks I did use the 40 wide setup but I ended up even going higher than your 7 because with my plow all the way up it still was not high enough. Then I seen some pictures that looks like maybe depends what plow some use a spacer block to raise light. So I just made my taller and no spacer needed. Know I just have to decide if I should just wire them in like the truck light 80888 manual shows or use relays.

    Wow that hoop sits low........ My Hoops are for "K" series GM's which as we know have frames that are much higher off the ground.

    Looks good, nice job.Thumbs Up
