    Ok I am sick of putting money into my intensifire lights. Back covers keep cracking and breakig around the 2 screwholds. One of the housing units has cracked now. So anyone got a set of the 3 bolt Intensifires? Are they any better or should I look into an after market set

    Sorry to hear that man...I've had a set on my rebuilt MM and again on my XLS...I've never had an issue with either of them, in fact I have nothing but good things to say about them.

    Intensefires

    I'm with you, a bit disappointed on their durability, hit a manhole sticking up less than an inch at about 10 MPH and a back cover broke off, I've seen this happen to other's also. I don't know if a previous operator of the truck (prior storm) may have hit something hard at a faster speed and started the cracking,(I am a little suspicious of that being the scenario), I keep telling the guys slow and easy wins the race with these trip edge plows. Remember Fisher recommends a top speed of 10 MPH when plowing.

    Hiniker lights are the same as the Meyer NS2's, and lower cost:

  5. I have the 3 mounting screw lights. No problems although I don't hit anything either. Thumbs Up

    So you just pull of cover and change the wire over? or do I have to solider stuff? I cant see paying 300 with the tax for a new set and have to keep buying rear covers for 20.

    I dont hit much and I know where my sewer caps are. These lights just cant seem to stand up to very light abuse. I am sure if you are doing driveways they are great. But any sort of comercial plowing and you are fixing them over and over. And I dont do over 10 miles per hour. I am going to look at other lights

    Maybe I am a glutton for punishmeant. But I went down and looked at the new intensifires. The ones with the 3 bolts on back seem to be a bit sturdier. And I complained about mine. The dealer knows I have bought so many parts for them. So he gave me a real good deal on a new set.

    That's probably how I would do it. That was how I installed the SnowDogg lights on my Western Unimoint.

    I really don't think you'll be disappointed. The only upgrade I ever recommend is swapping the bulbs out for sylvania silverstar's, and bring a 3/4 socket and ratchet with you the first time out with them for final adjustments

    Got them for 199. 235 is regular price Dont want to tell dealers name. Yeah I think I got a bad bulb. One side doesnt have high beams. the low beam stays on only so if I have to replace a bulb I will upgrade them. And I always carry extra tools. And I think I got them set perfect. They light up road and no one is high beaming me

    Um I doub it. just at first glance they have 2 head light bulbs and 1 turning signal. I am sure you can make them work. Cut the mm2 cord and then solider stuff I bet it wouldnt be too tough. But nothing I wanted to get into.
