    More Lights??

    So am I the only one that has thought to myself "That thing needs more light in the front."? I hope not. Granted that I don't have one and it will be hard for me to decide how/where to wire more lights, I am so going to do it.

    Personally I want all the lights on the light bar on top to work. If I have to wire them separately to the body, so be it. I will hide some a 9v battery disguised as a water can or something. I don't care, I want more lights. I want this thing to light up the trail something fierce in front of me. Oh yeah!


    Any one else feel this way? Anyone got any ideas/suggestions?

    I agree. If I were to get one, I would most deffinitely want the Roll bars lights to light as well. Also want the front true headlights to light up and the tail lamps to. Maybe ad a spot light to the drivers side like a cop car has.

    I lover your idea of hiding the battery to look like a water/gas can.
    Cant wait to see yours when your done.

    Yep, the Light Bar on top would be good to have working also.

    Also, turn signals, and 4way flashers, just in case you need to go into town for some supplies real quick. LOL

    There has be a reason why they didn't put more up front. I mean, I agree, it seems like there should be more lights in the front than in the back, but there has to be some sort of reasoning behind it. Maybe the location of the lights is optimized so only four are needed?

    You always have the option to change the 4 LEDs on the front with powerful 100mA white LEDs... That should give you enough light!

    Awesome idea! Why stop with the light bar though? Drill the body every 1/4 inch and cover it with HID love! I am talking 3rd degree UV burns when you get within 3 feet of it!!! Of course the run time would be under a minute but that is a minor issue easily solved by installing a deep cycle marine battery.
