    Ordered a set today, really hope they are worth the money will have pics when they are installed. Will I be the only one to have them?

    I've got 2 of the S.O. 500 lumens as reverse lights... I can't imagine the 1400s light output in comparison. Burns my retinas just thinking about it...


    These might be worth a look though, and I think they're only $45 each. http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=115215

    I have both of these lights, the soundoff and the DDM lights. The way have them set up, the soundoff lights are a little better, but their light output is unobstructed, as the DDM lights have a little bit of obstructions in them due to the way that I have them mounted. Both are great lights, I will be mounting the other DDM lights on the rear of my Kubota. I currently have the soundoffs on the rear of my Dodge, and the front of the Kubota. The DDM lights are mounted on the rear of my Chevy, but I couldn't get them mounted where they are completely unobstructed by the bumper. Will try to post some pictures of them in the next couple of days.

    are you saying the 1350 ddm is only comparable in light output to the SO 500 or the SO 1400?

    if you have the 500's and the DDM the DDM should be 3x brighter no?

    I have 2 of the DDM tuning led floods and plan to order a few more, I installed HIDs in my plow lights and they are compairable, but don't have the distance, all in all its Damn near day light when there on.
    $45 each

    I have a set of 1400 on my backrack and a set of 500 lumen for reverse and another 500 lumen as a salter light. They are bright as the day when all lit up behind the truck.

    Will someone post some pictures at night of the Soundoff 1400's? Can I just run them off the power from the backup lightoff of the 7 pin wiring for the trailer or will I need a relay?

    I run my 500s off my 7 pin with a relay and my 1400 on my backrack off the aux light that comes with the plow prep which also has a relay and here a some pics of them on in this thread above.

    According to the website the 1400 draws 3.7amps at 12.8v.
    If you have two of these lights wired together that would be 7.4amps max. A 5amp fuse may blow when the battery voltage drops.
    #12 wire is good for 20amps. Make sure it is a heavy duty switch rated for at least 15amps.
    I think it may be a good idea to install a relay but probably will work fine without one.
