They are the Rigid Industries Dually 2x2 LEDs. You can get them in all sorts of sizes and configurations.

These lights better suit what I use them for - which is at most 50-100ft in front of my truck. I realized I didn't need the massive baja-style space shuttle landing lights on top of my truck. Those old lights also pulled a lot of power. These new LEDs pull a tiny fraction of that power.

I had them mounted up on top in the standard NAS mounting locations, but their small size made them look goofy, so I moved them down and in front of the cage. I simply used black painted stainless steel hose clamps to mount them.

I plan on installing two more in the rear.

Price per pair is about $190.

I wanted to do that, but by snorkel is in the way on one side!

I have one spliced into my stock reverse light wire. I don't even have a switch, it just comes on when I am in reverse. It works great.

Making some progress....

Installing the rear door today and will do the side doors this weekend.

It's nice to finally replace all the hardware with stainless and clean up a lot of previously oversprayed parts.

Looks like it's going to come out great. You *have* take some video of it driving on those little wheels sometime though.

Almost done. Still have a few loose ends to tie up and some cleaning and touch up.

Have some new wing tops coming Tuesday.

Looks really nice. Would be hilarious- little wheels, your son in the passenger seat and the looks you get from other people.

On another note- you have 3 bolts in the cage that look like they are for more cross bars across the top. Is that correct? Curious about those if they are.

Yep, those are Wolf bolt in cross bars for the NAS 110 cage. They essentially give me the ability to carry cargo across the entire cage without having a basket mounted.

Looks great!

Does anyone else find it fitting that the unveiling is the same day that CA courts ruled the gay marriage ban is unconstitutional?

Thanks. Still have a lot a little things to tidy up. I broke a rear turn signal, still need to decide if I reinstall the rear reverse and fog lights, have some more stainless hardware to install, need to finishing waxing the truck, need to install rear LED lights, and the next big project is a pair of hybrid X-Eng X-Joint // Rovertym rear trailing arms.

Ugh, I know. I've been working on it at lunch, after work, at night, and on weekends. It helps to have a wife and kids who understand the addiction.
