    so i have been noticing while driving with my plow on at night i seem to be blinding oncoming cars with my nighthawk lights. i have them pointed so i can see well but when i adjust them any lower i cant see much. some cars are flicking there high beams at me when im on low beams. any other guys have this dilema?

    I have had same issue, and all I have are the crappy old trucklite headlights on my plow. Its 'cause plow lights are mounted higher than regular headlights, deceiving to some people.:dizzy: Just flash'em back, they'll get the hint.

    Just kick them to the right a little bit. I have the DS aimed slightly right, PS almost straight ahead.

    I second this. When I adjusted mine (aiming them at the garage door) I put the DS a few degrees over, and I have been flashed less since then. I put the Silverstar bulbs in mine, so they are blindingly bright:eek:

    I switched my Intensifires over to relays. Added dual burn. Plenty of light now :D
