    Looks good, but just wondering why did you go with meyer lights and not blizzard's newer lights? The same ones on Fisher/Western.

    Probably doesn't want it to look like he has twin ET's sticking out the front of his truck.

    (This is not meant to be a smart comment, just adding my opinion based on my personal experiences with both brands of lights.)

    Where is the picture of the tornado, all we can see the top. I did not realize how high those things sit in the bed.

    Lights look great! Spreader is really tall. What side bed do you have and how big is the spreader?

    I always thought they looked more like Wall-E:

    You'll be doing the same thing with the ones you just installed in a year. :nod:

    Maybe. But two flashlights duct taped to the cross bar would be better than those Blizzard originals.

    looks good, ive thought about doing the same to our blizzard, i cant believe they actually used sealed beam units.... the meyer night sabers we had on our meyer plow gave us alot of headaches, they never stayed aimed where we had them, and the mount bracket at the bottom of the light kept breaking. hope you have better luck with yours. fwiw, the new boss lights are totally amazing, ive debated throwing some hids in there, but i think ill just go with silverstars.

    I do agree that the new Blizzard lights look goofy as sin.
