Seems like each week there is a new thread. Figured this thread could be a resource like the hid thread. Post what you have and experience with it. In addition to the mounts you have bought or made.

I will start with the ones I have.

1 2x2 symtec 3w pod
1 2x2 rigid dually
1 2x2 rigid dually hyperspot
1 2x2 aurora 3w pod
1 2x2 aurora 5w pod
2 2x2 (don't know manufacturer) 3w pods with optics similar to rigid
4 2x3 cheapo amazon pods
1 30" single row totron combo pattern

Most of these are for a test I am running. But I have had the 30" totron the longest. Once I have the pod testing done I will have more info on them.

Preview of the pod testing


The new ones for my quad. These have similar optics to the rigid.


All the testing pods


My 30" totron. Good output and was a little over $200 iirc I have had it for 3 years.


No pictures on my phone of the cheapo lights and have not done anything with them since I bought them.

Those plates look so out of place with those tiny lights in that big hole.

I wish someone made some lights that were really close to stock size for the gmc fog lights.. I looked at some oracles that were nice but they wont work the way they mount

The factory gmc opening is just too large. not many options for a round light to begin with in the led game

1.5"x11" long. You'd need a single row 10" bar in them.( 03-07 Silverado NBS)

I have some CREE pods I installed and hooked up to my reverse lighting, they only go on when in reverse. Wired into the trailer harness. I have considered running another wire to an aux switch. We'll see. They sure light things up nice!

3" cree cube light: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2PCS-3-CREE-LED-POD-WORK-LIGHT-BIKE-MOTORCYCLE-OFFROAD-JEEP-SPOT-ATV-3X3-3inch-/281248153802?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item417bb240ca&vxp=mtr








I could not for the life of me get a good ground. I ended up running a wire all the way up to my battery (PITA!). I didn't want to tap into the ground in the trailer harness.

Finally installed the Toughlight 30" radius bar. Didn't need to remove the tow hooks after all.

How do you like the toughlight bar?
Their customer service and shipping times are shitty, but the bar and harness seem to be pretty good.
