    has anyone fabbed up a set of plow lights for a snow bear? I think $199 for a set of plow lights on 2 little brackets is a little steep...

    Very easy to do. I used 11 ga 1" square tubing (just cut square at both ends) and 3/16"X 1" flat for both the bottom and upper plates. I then bent and twisted the upper plates until the lights were level and even.

    Being that it was just used for a few driveways, I just used tractor flood lights from TSC for $10-12 each.

    I think all told I had $30 into the whole shebang. This included the redneck wiring! I used a trailer 4 way flat connector and an old outdoor extension cord.

    It was so easy, I wondered why they charge $200 for them.

    I got the lights when they were $99. I almost had a stroke when I saw they went up to $199!

    They are made well, but if you have metalworking experience, or know someone who has, no doubt you can fab a set as good.

    I replaced the lights with real plow lights..made a huge improvement. Search for my threads to see how I mounted and wired it
