    New lights!!

    So this happened...



    Figured out my headlight took ~3.55 amps so I did some looking and found out an LED car headlight take about the same and produces significantly more light. So next step was figuring out the housing because I encounter fog quite a bit so I wanted a nice clean cut off for my low beam.

    I went with a newer Ford Fusion fog light housing with the foreground- light guard cut off for more foreground light and an LED H11 1600 lumen bulb. Will post a night time shot if people want.

    High beam is a 8 inch 40 watt spot/flood combo that also draws ~3.55 amps and says its 5000 lumens but I have no way of actually measuring. My bet is its closer to 3500 but still bright as heck. I also made my own mount for it as you can see.

    So far I'm super happy with my MUCH improved lighting situation.

    Please share links for your light sources.

    Is there any advantages to mounting the top light bar that high above the main headlight, or was it merely how it worked out with your setup?

    Merely how it worked out, if I mounted it below the regular light I ran the risk of hitting the fender during suspension travel.

    Here is my high beam link ...

    Low beam housing you can get from dealer, eBay, craigslist, junkyard, anywhere really. It's just a newer Ford Fusion foglight.

    Bulb I went through my friends auto repair shop and got the racesport rs V2 h11 led for super cheap. When it dies I will be going with this bulb as it it much brighter http://www.siriusled.net/collections...-lumen-9003-h4

    Night time pics will be up tonight or tomorrow morning! I was surrounded by street lights last night so everywhere I went was already lit up.

    How did you make the material that surrounds your light?

    Yea so the light I got came with the oem bracket for the foglight so I cut an opening in an aluminum plate which was ~1/8 thick. The opening is sort of odd shaped but when you get the bracket you will understand.

    Then I broke the glass cover off the oem headlight, took off the bulb retainer and cut the aluminum plate to fit recessed where the oem glass was. Attached it via metal epoxy, loctite I believe (sturdy as heck) and positioned it right in the middle so the LED bulb fit just perfectly through the oem bulb hole.

    That help?
