That looks awesome. How did you run all 4 of the cables into the cab? BD uses some stout cables.

Oar those the sport or the XL sport version?

I'm guessing you're not disappointed with the output and beam pattern.

Thanks for the details, Brian.

That is my hope, too

Cables are down the external cage bar and under the wing. I really like the size and the out put, and they are the sport model, and more than enough. The real pop though is the two new light force LEDs on the A bar. Pricey but very powerful!

You waited this long? Yes I know your lines had sleeves on them but really?

I don't get how people can own something as valuable as a defender and then get cheap or lazy on small stuff. This and the guy who wanted a used light switch floors me. Pennywise, truck burning to the ground, pound foolish.

Hey at least you got a hardtop so your kid can't escape as it burns to the ground. Safety first!

Calm down Barry or you'll shoot in your pants. My lines were replaced with new genuine ones and sleeves added prior to my purchase. Plenty of people replace with genuine new lines. Now get up off of the floor.

To quote Horsey - "Use the search function" The genuine lines are garbage and plenty of people can attest to buying news ones and them cracking instantly because of being new old stock. I'm sure with the sleeves you were probably fine but it still cracks me up that you would own the truck this long and get boosts, a hardtop and whatever other crap was fashionable before dealing with something that was actually useful to long term ownership.

I was told by multiple shops the lines were fine, but please do let me know what I should do next so I can tell the guys I'm paying $120/hr what's really right by the forum expert. Glad I was able to crack you up, bud.

For what it's worth the used light switch was recommended to me by another board member as a cheep way to troubleshoot the headlights...

I'm learning as I go along.

That is understandable. You should have said that in your thread to stop the mockery.

You need to find a new shop. There is literally pages and pages on oil lines on this site. I guess you missed it in the hardtop search. Not to mention you have had the truck for years now. You had no excuse.

Just flew in, walked the dog, and plugged in the NEW switch I got from RN. Headlights work!

I'll install the switch and put the plastic bits back in place in the morning.
