Thanks for posting the photo. What make are those lights?

Polishing the lights does help a bunch.

I'm heading out tomorrow, in the rain as usual. Guess I'll just pack those side marker light sockets with dielectric grease and hit the road.

Took a peak at a new Renegade last week. Still can't figure out why the busses have so many nice bright side markers and even the new truck conversions have so few.

Contact Bushpilot he bought them, my truck is an hour away right now or I would look for you.
I want to put more lights on my truck, Led's of course. Replace the old ones polished and locate some more around, but I really don't like the black ribbed plastic for running wires and I would have to do that in several places, I want a mid point turn signal on each side, and a long strip up each side in the back for brake, running, turning and if they would turn white for back up. My lights for backing up lack a lot! And I want the ones in the back so people can see what is going on above my toad.
Also want to have some bright LED's for front running, I always run with my lights on in the day, AND them fog light, what a piece of junk, polished or not. I see all these replacement light but not sure about the beam, range etc. Yes I have looked at all the specs, but I want to see them in the dark so I get what I am looking for.
Be safe in the rain!

I'd like some more light upfront also, been thinking of mounting a light bar in the open slot in the bumper. I don't think it's legal to run it all the time though. I've thought about an led light bar along top on the rear that you could turn on for backing and loading my trailer.

imo a lightbar up front will be a mistake.

a couple of pods (4 or 6 LEDs each) will work better, since you can aim them independently of each other.

My Passenger-side LED pod is aimed toward the shoulder a bit and the drivers-side pod points a bit more straight (if not a little to the right/passenger side) to keep it out of the eyes of on coming interstate traffic.

the same probably holds true for the rear as well....two or maybe 3? pods up top would give you some better aim / spread options
