i want to get two lights and i'm trying to decide whether to get two floods (model 60) or one flood (model 60) and one spot (model 30). i was thinking i'd leave the spot on at near full brightness at all times and use the flood for when the high beams are on, but i don't think i'd be able to do that without two dimmers. leaning towards just getting two floods, but i'd be interested in hearing people's opinions.

thanks.

You could run a model 30 and a model 60 with one of our LED controllers. Running the model 30 at near full brightness is kind of redundant with a dimmer, you could increase the dimmer output for a similar effect while still having the high beam function available.

If you have adequate stator power I would recommend the Model 60s with an led controller.

When lights are ordered with a dimmer, they come plug n play at no additional cost.

That could be a real killer light!
Now you're talkin

"similar to Clearwater" at 1/4 the price

Got mine installed today, easy peasy. For now I haven't hooked up the high-beam trigger. They're bright! Can't wait to test them after dark!

Just got my order in and already got the shipping notification. Can't wait to get them installed. I'll send you some install pics.

By the way, can I use my existing wiring harness? Just splice in at the light and were ever the dimmer goes? I have PIAAs motorsports relay in the system as well. Would be nice to not pull wire again.

Thanks for the chat Jon,

Phil

Existing harness should work fine. Nice talking with you, look forward to some install pics, let me know if you have any questions on the install.

Thanks for your business.

Make sure the brackets are secure, less vibration the better
