thanks, steve, i appreciate your efforts. :drink1:Muddy Oval said:Geez- their web site sucks! We only carry two of their series of lamps, so I don't have a lot of info on anything other than the 6.5" and 9" offroad lamps. I also brought back a pair of 5" rallye lamps from the U.K. last time I was there for my MG- which I'm now going to flush mount in my bumper. They are quite common on rallye cars- also Cibie are popular over there. I can get Cibie Oscars and Super Oscars by special order- those are the "shiznit" of rallye cars... you'll see more of those than any other lamp. I don't get them for mine because they're french.
Lemme see if I can find more info- if not, I'll pull some stats from the manuals at work and take some pics.
WHAT ???!!!...lol...If im not mistaken, arent the FF1000s the ones MADE to go like 3 feet underwater? Are you lookin for Atlantis???..lolrmuller said:You could also go with the Hella FF1000s, it's ~$85 for 2 of them, with the wiring harness included.. they are pretty bright and street legal still I believe. My one recommendation though, is if you go wheeling in deep water, make sure you seal them up pretty good.. mine are 1/2 filled with water right now
From what I Have read of Lightforce they are my #1 choice. I have a set on order and more to come to fill me new roof rack. As far as brittle they will take a .22 rifle round with no damage so I'd doubt that would be too much of a problem besides it has the actual lenses and the filter to get through. In fact I read some where that Most of the Baja 1000 competitors are switching to lightforce and that they have yet to break one, where as about a third of the hella's typically survive :rellyeMuddy Oval said:The FF1000 is a great lamp... Best bang for the buck in an inexpensive lamp. I really don't understand why people get Hella 500's. They suck.
Lightforce are nice, but in cold climates the plastic may prove to be brittle when driving in subzero temps with wind chill added on.
