Rear work lamp?
 
Where can I find a rear lamp that mounts just above the license plate light? it's on a pivot with a handle on top. Think it is made by Hella but can't seem to find it anywhere.

Thanks

The Hella Matador : http://www.hella.com/hella-uk-en/ass...Matador_EN.pdf

EE has them, Rovers North have them too I think, Atlantic British might..

I have a dual beam work light (Hella) that is a lot more compact and brighter, that Matador is a little big.

rallylights.com I order all my new hella stuff from these guys and they give a discount if you mention D-90.com

I second the guys at Susquehanna Motorsports -rallylights.com, Dave and Ray -and the dual filament hella work light.
They have a couple of lenses for that lamp as well, close range and long range.
I usually set them up with one filament triggered by the reverse lights and the other by an ignition fed, switched circuit (less likely to be left on and run the battery down). Hella also makes a black rocker switch with an illuminated LED (red, green or yellow) that fits nicely in the wiring cover or speaker housing on the D's.

I amusing the three position 110 dimmer switch with my dual work light. Its wired to come on independently of reverse light and one or both beams. I believe it is the long range pattern, rally lights had sold all the flood beams to the boarder patrol. The light is stupid bright but provides ample lighting in a camp site. Its way brighter than the matador.

Supposedly the diffused is the way to go, and from what the sales guy said, two spaced dually's would be better than one D2.

I have two diffused on my LR3 and the D2 on the 90 as work lamps. They are mega supreme.

Price is a little steep, but they are completely sealed, feel sturdy as shit (I guess there is a reason it's called rigid industries) and look good too.

Roverlab December 20th, 2011 10:28 AM

Those look cool...

kinetic December 20th, 2011 10:29 AM

Are the diffused on the LR3 the dually, or also the D2? Thanks!

Dually on the D90, and then 2x Dually D2 Diffused on the back of the LR3 roof rack.

I can take pics later if you want.

If you don't mind, a pic or two would be great! Would you agree that two dually's would be better than one D2 for rear lights (considering it would end up the same price)? Not sure how much I trust the guy I spoke with's knowledge from Rigid.

Thanks so much in advance!

I have two Vision X 2" LED lights (XIL-S1101 - http://www.visionxonly.com/XIL-S1101...tml?new_sess=1) mounted on the top of my rack in the rear and two on each side. The light output is perfect, and I looked at all the aforementioned options before choosing these. I'll post some pictures tonight.
