roof rack lights for setting up camp.

I run 4 of these Vision-X led flood lights. https://www.visionxusa.com/shop/3-4-utility-flood/ They are bright enough for any task without being so bright that they give you a sunburn. They are lightweight, and durable. They have been on my truck for 6 years and still look and work like new.

Thank you, that's the kind of info, I've been looking for. I will check those out. I know Vision X are quality lights.

They effectively light the ground from about 12” away to about 8 or 9’ away. All 6 come on at the same time.

I have two Baja S2 Pro mounted to the front of my rack that work as ditch lights, but I can swivel them for side lights as well. They are the flood lights in amber. Which is a great combination for night, dust and fog. I hate bright white lights for camp lighting. lights.png

I like how subtle these are. Did you fab the brackets yourself?

Thanks. I much prefer the subtle light to the alien landing scenario. They are plenty bright to cook or make camp though. Somewhere between big flashlight and Coleman lantern.

Yes, the brackets are some scrap I had left from a project. They are 1x3 tube that I had ripped into “L” profiles for my fridge slider. I just cut some pieces wide enough to u-bolt onto the vertical risers.

If you have a gobi, I’ve found mid-70s Chevy u-joint bolts are a great way to bolt things to the upper tubes
