    Best money ive ever spent on snow plowing.

    (2) rigid E2 Flood/Spot Combos
    (1) rigid 20" E2 Hyper spot flood combo light bar ( AMAZING )
    (4) Whelen Ion Grill LED's

    Rear lights are wired to Auxillary 4 and the light bar on the plow is wired to the plows high beams. there is not as much light shake from the plow as i thought and the snow reflection from the light is minimal also.

    2014 F350 6.7 Diesel rigged with a 9' boss straight blade with rubber deflector and a 1.8 yd Blizzard ice chaser

    I've been set like that for 4 years except I cut in flush mounts in to bumper and wired in to reverse.

    I also have a "few" other lights, careful, it could become an addiction.....,I have a four more toys waiting at home today.

    Looks good,

    yes, it can easily become an addiction. however i don't think there's really anything else to add. with the vibrators in the sander this thing is almost perfect. although i wish i had bought an extended cab, but its just a work truck.

    Looks good...I have 4 LED from Laredo Trailer Supply, I used stake pocket brackets and they sit on the bed rails, 2 on each side. We set all of our trucks up like that for this year after I tested them for 2 seasons.

    They work great, and it's also a very effective anti tailgating device!

    Anyone with any expierance with these Rigid lights under the back bumper? I am thinking of getting a pair for each truck but I'm concerned that they wouldn't create enough heat to melt the snow off of them. I now use hallogen lights that work well but we only get about two years of life out of them.

    The rig ids do create their own heat. I don't have problems with snow build up under the bumper though. Once you go led you won't go back.

    I did the same thing for back up lights , rigid dully for back up lights under the bumper as well . Those things kick ass . Tied into the reverse wire so they go on automatically when in reverse . I put in 3 way switch as well so I can turn on if I want or not even use them at all .best money spen on Amazon $160 then went directly to rigid web site and bought wire harness for back up light kits . Made install so much easier .
