    Nice. I have two lights up high for backing up...I'm adding more soon. I like the box, it'll work well. Nice job.

    Your ballast box looks like a giant cash register tray.

    Nice setup.

    Those are Cat lights, as in the construction equipment brand. As for a part #, I'm sure any Cat dealer can help you, or check with Blueline enterprise, a regular contributor to Plowsite (bluelineenterprises.com). These have been talked about on here before with positive feedback. I've never used them personally, and can't remember their cost either. I'm sure someone will know more.

    Mike, Can you take a picture of how your back rack is mounted. I got one from a buddy of mine but it's set up to mount to a Chevy. Naturally there was no mounting hardware included so I have to fab something up. A few pictures of the mounting of yours would be appreciated.
