    Built these lights earlier this winter and they work really good. The lights are cheap 36 watt led's from Amazon that I had bought for another project and I used a 2" solid receiver hitch tube, 1/4x6" plate to box in around the lights and a 15,000 lb D ring welded on the end. Unless I back into something that pokes directly into the lights they are very well protected and other than the hitch tube I had everything laying around.

    Very Nice Build. I bought a ready made version that mounted like yours. The cheap plastic housing split up & down & left & right. Yours looks great. Color me jealous and impressed!!!!

    Wow I'd hate to walk into that with my shin at the grocery store parking lot! That would leave a friggin mark.
    Looks great nice work

    This is another good example of what I could do for my main truck. Only problem would be, that I'd have to remove it to be able to shut the garage door.

    Plow would need a more permanent solution, that wouldn't be buried while using the dump box.
