    I have a problem with my lights. They are the old style Meyer's, made by Truck-Lite.

    The mounting bolts are rusted up solid. what I really would like to do is replace the mounting bolts if possible. I would hate to but new lights, as I have my strobe's mounted in them.

    I cant seem to figure a way to change out the bolt, without taking the whole thing apart by way of drilling out the rivets. Are these mounting bolts a standard bolt or am i better off just getting new lights?

    Does anybody know what a good place to get them is? I found them on
    www.J-thomas.com $67 for drivers side, and $70 for passenger side. Is this a good price? Does anybody else have another source for these? Is this a good price?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you want to replace them you can find sets of low pro lights for about 100 bucks i know awdirect has a set for 99.

    I think if they still work fine then leave them be, but instead of messin around trying to fix them just get some new ones and swap ur strobes over. yeah i know a PITA but hey if its what ya gotta do, its what ya gotta do.

    I would rather not have to touch them, BUT at least buy in new ones, I would have spare parts. lol I'll check out aw direct. I didn't even think of checking there for some reason.

    Also check with Jeen at Storks Auto on this site. I think he emailed me that he bought a bunch of them and was looking to sell some.

    Here's what I did... Cut off the mounting bolts, ground off the rivets that hold the housing to the mounting bolts. I used Stainless Steel bolts, locks, flats, and nuts.

    Used 8/32's to mount the light housig to the mounting bolt assembly. Used 1/2-13 carrage bolts for the mounting bolts.

    Works great! Now I can adjust my lights agian!
