I love the four light setup! I've got the two behind the grill, but haven't seen the four lights before. Nice install!

The grille looks great as well!

Haha ya to each their own.. I decided to go w/ the 4-light setup for one cuz i've nvr seen it and i thought it would give it a lil diff look than jus doing 2 big ones.. My origional idea was to to two 6" ones but i didn't want to spend 60bucks. I have em all wired up to the same switch and those smaller upper two lights r bright as hell!! almost brighter than the bigger lower ones!

Nice. Looks good. How close are you to Praire De Sac (spelling?) just 30 or 45 min away from Madison. My mom grew up there I head that way every few years.

I like the look and agree with STL on the "back road" piece, especially since I get flashed sometimes when my OEM fogs are on. Does that happen to any of you too or is my rear end riding low / front end high????

your regular headlamps mite just be aimed too high.. i don't think it would be your fogs. or they culd jus be cranky old people who think any car coming at them has brights on..
