(I've not read thru all the posts - but based upon the title of the thread...)
I installed a single Eagle Eyes
50W [internal ballast] HID spot lamp AND a wireless switch to activate it.
If you're wondering why only one, there are three reasons:
1) I had already mounted a pair of Hella
4000X (halogen) spot/driving lights -- with a wireless switch -- to the pre-drilled holes in the Steelcraft
brush guard. Those lights were supposed
to be long distance animal spotters, but they're rather disappointing.
2) With a pair of lights already mounted -- and not wishing to go TOO far into "Macho Bronco" territory -- I elected to go with just one EE...for which I drilled a third hole in the brush guard.
3) The EE lamp is pretty expensive, and after dropping what I did for the halogens, I couldn't afford/justify TWO lights of that calibre/cost.
If you're wondering what I think of the EE...
It is freakin' awesome. 'Waaaay better than the halogens. And yes - I regret how it went. In good old 20/20 hindsight, I wish I had installed a pair of EE's and passed on the Hella's.
Oh - and the wireless switches are gratifying. I was a little apprehensive about pumping the full juice thru the relays inside the wireless switch, so I installed a 40A external
relay for each circuit...and allowed the relay inside the switch to trigger the secondary/external relay. This keeps the surge at virtually nothing inside the wireless switch...AND if the external relay fries I can replace it without sacrificing my wireless switching capability.
