I saw a thread someone else made about those... can't remember if it was here or over at R/F, but they painted the plastic (maybe with bed liner) and mounted them to a bar on the bumper, looked good.

Of course, you know someone was gonna post............

Nice and bright!!! How deep (dimension from lens to back of housing) are they and what type of mount are they?? I wonder if they would fit behind a grille like a Hella 500..

Oh and is the grille/ protector cage removable on them?

Wow, those look pretty bright. I know Harbor Freight stuff can be hit or miss, so please update after a month and a good rain on whether they hold up or not Thanks!

i had those on my 87 for a while.... got them on sale for $16

roommate and i got into a pushing contest s-10 vs ranger....we went nose to nose in 1st gear

the Ranger won but the bumper mounted lights didn't....

bright as HELL but kinda chinsy....wasn't too thrilled with the quality of the plastic cages...busted one of the cages following my dad on a gravel road....

they do hold up to the weather quite well....never had issues with them leaking or turning yellow

thought about grabbing another set for my 85 if i see them on sale again

only pic i had....mounted on front bumper
