roof mounted light location
I am contemplating lighting positions on my truck once again, now that Rigid has come out with their flush series. I am now probably not going to do an aftermarket front bumper, maybe...and just mount a set of their D2 fogs in the bumper if I can get them positioned correctly (seems the metal angles up)...No one makes a shim for the lights and I have emailed rigid about selling me an extra set of flush plates that I could shave down.
So if I stick with the stock front bumper I need to find a home for either a 20 inch or 30 inch E series spot bar. I can mount it on the outside of the top of the bumper, or mount it on the roof. I am not thrilled about the idea of drilling holes in my roof, but wouldnt mind drilling holes in my ARE shell. Problem is, the truck is a crew cab.
So would mounting the light that far back throw a really horrible shadow over the part of the road closest to the truck basically negating the benefits of being able to see good really far, if I cant see really good up front (or will the D2 fogs take care of that problem)
Or should I just mount everything on the bumper?
Oh and the truckis a F350 that has a 6 ish inch lift on 37's, so its not exactly low...And I dont want to put a rack up there, as its too high to be usefull to me (vertically challenged)
2002 F-350, D60/D80, in the process of redoing the suspension to squeeze 37 nitto trail grapplers...other little doodads...
