You have to set them back so you get a shadow on the hood. If the lights shine into the window, you will never see an thing. Plus the flood work better than the spots, Spots look cool but lighting is poor. I have 2 spots on the out side and 2 floods on the inside postions of the rack. Also put side lights on the rack.

Look for the video in the event section to see it with the lights on.

floods are nice, but spots let you see far ahead. especially with HID 10" spots...

Yes but we are not flying along at 90mph. It's better to light the area right in front of the car.

the video

I'm running the 2 floods in the center. You have the spots on and it feels like your driving under a low bridge once the dust picks up.

try to have lights pointing in fron of you and just out to the sides of your periferial area.

some of the rail guys here run the inner lights ppointing straight forward with a mild spread on them. the outer two lights point off to either side at a 30* or so from the length of the vehicle. this gives a wide spread and allows visual on corners. add a flood or two in there. since i have 4-100watt floods on my baja, i am adding two floods on the front cage.





try for a back up light of some kind also. we get out in the desert and canyons around here at night and are unable to see the drop offs or obstacles when we have to back down a hill or "austin powers" out of a dead end.

the end shows where azbaja broke his front right spindle nearly off. he limped out from the bottom of the canyon (bulldog) on 3 wheels and went 2 miles with hill climbs, rock, and sand. daryll played tow truck after eric made it out of the canyon.
