    I doubt that you actually see more than 500 lm from those at temperature. They're decent for offroad though.

    I'll be field-testing a pair of JW Speaker TS3000 lights sometime next month if I can figure out a mount for the Power Wagon.
    I really like the new LEDs from Speaker and Trucklite. These are street legal too, not just for ATVs....

    These solstice pods look like they would be great for aux lighting. Does anyone have experience with their flood lights? I'm a little weary of LED floods but love the low amp draw.

    Actually it's very easy to get a flood from an LED. Getting a narrow focused beam is a little tougher. Most led out there are 125deg with no optic or reflector. It's very easy to get that down to 40 to 60deg. I use Cree xpg with an optic that makes for a 10mm x 10mm x 7mm foot print and that gets down to about a 24 deg beam. To get a 5 to 10 deg I would need a massive 35mm reflector. Even with a larger XML LED all that is needed for a flood is a 20mm optic.

    Thanks for the reply. Good information to know.
