Default Hella Black Magic and lower grille

Added a few things today, I had some Hella black magic offroad lights and decided to put them on. I had to mount them up top because the tranny cooler was in the way on the bottom. Obviously, my grille isn't optimal for this light setup, so I might change it later but it was fun to do regardless. I also put on the lower billet grille, which was super easy.

that is awesome looking! Great job! How did you wire them in? Did you run a secondary switch?

Thanks man, I wired them to the battery so they are independent of any other lights. I have a switch that I ran to the cab thats under the dash until I think of a better place to put it.

Awesome. Do they make a big difference, or does the grille block most of the light?

Added a set of off-road driving lights in the same spot. Looks good!

The grille blocks about 30% of the light I would guess, it still adds a good amount of illumination though, definitely noticeable.

Your setup looks cool Terry, I hadn't seen anyone else with them mounted this way until I decided to try it.

Did you flip the lenses? There is an up and down orientation to the glass and it should be turned 180 degrees when they are hung pendant style like yours.
