Not related to the HID headlights, but if anyone is interested in real high quality LED lighting, Baja Designs should be at the top of your list. USA made, quality serviceable optics, multiple beam patterns and extremely good fit and finish. I mounted a Squadron Sport flush driving beam light with the amber lens into the driver's side rear door of my van for an offroad dust light. The angle of the door pitches the beam up a bit, but the output is spectacular (1850 lumens at 20w) for such a small unit. I will be putting a set of the Squadron XL or XL80 lights on the front of the van as soon as funds allow.

I saw their lights at Hammertown and they looked well made, but what is a "dust" light for? Still enjoying my HID's too...................

My version of fun off-road is basically higher speed prerunning type stuff. In those conditions, heavy dust can create a safety issue for those following. The amber/yellow lights cut through the dust and give a visual reference. I chose the flush mounted version to keep the light closer to eye level. There are certainly other mounting options, but this was the most durable option I came across.

Pic attached to see a dust light in action of a truck I was following.

I'm glad to hear the lights are working well for you!

An Amber rear facing light has been required on race cars in Off-Road Racing for probably 20 years now. Many people also put them on chase and support vehicles that might be on the course - not required.

Agile Off-Road is a Baja Designs dealer. Baja Designs offers some of the best lights money can buy.

Sounds like we will be talking when I make moves on the Squadron XL or XL80 lights and Onx6 for the front!

Latest set completed for a local customer. Looks like it's going to be a busy month with lots of orders coming in!

More lights completed...this time for a Dodge Ram 1500. Not in love with the blue shrouds the customer supplied, but they came out nice.

This is the set of lights from a couple of posts ago installed on the customer's sweet Quigley. They came out great and the light output is awesome. The side by side shot with the stock light's output says it all!
