Re: Driving Lights opinions


Rich,

I'm sure your plastic lights would cause less harm than others, but at the end it depends on the officer stopping you and if he wanted to go by the book, that is exactly what he's going to do, no matter what arguments you present to him.

Am betting they'll be less negotiable at the start of the new fines system, so take care.

My new blue lens covers that I picked up on Sunday might make them even more noticeable now emoticon

Re: Driving Lights opinions

I bought a pair of 170's a few months ago. The guy who sold them to me told me a story about one of his friends who wanted to test the strength of his lights as he kept breaking them whilst pig shooting.
Anyway he stood 5meters away with all the lights on the market and shot each one. The light years were the only ones that didn't even have a scratch.
He told me another story about he had hit a skippy at 100km/h and the skippy had light marks embedded in the carcass. Didn't even crack the plastic lenses.
They are tough lights.

So true - which is one reason I went for the Slimlites. They are not very deep and can easily be fitted to most bullbars and nudgebars without protruding.

I have the KC Slimlite Long Range lights. They'll beam up to over a kilometre away. Not the kind of light you can use on your average busy highway (probably don't meet ADRs) but great for places like the Hay Plain and the outback. See them here ...

Bought them through a 4WD shop in Perth who imports Jeep stuff direct from US.

(Edit By Jalal) Moved information related to the KC Spotties to this post.

Anyone who hit a skippy at 100km/h would have more than damage to his lights to worry about

Re: Driving Lights opinions


Well I was looking at the IPF 900XS Spot Lights as they seem a very good choice as recommended by ARB. The reviews on them appear to be excellent, however their specs didn't indicate their range. So I decide to contact ARB direct with this question. ARB was very prompt in suppling me brouchures, advertising, stickers, etc, however still didn't answer my question on range. Bit disappointing!!!

Anyway I decided to go with the lightforce 170 which were 3 times cheaper and have a range of 650m at 1 lux of light. I was quoted $359 by a local 4x4 shop here, although scored a real bargin from ebay at $285 including delivery.

They have been fitted and look real sexy. I'm quite happy with this mid range Spot Light. Only thing I need to get now is a couple sets of the "Nite Stalker" locking nuts to make it harder for the theives.

Does anyone know anything about "Nylocks" (I think that's the spelling) locking nuts which will apparently give you some security with spotlights for which regular lock nuts may not be available?

Re: Driving Lights opinions


"nylocks" are nuts with a little bit of plastic (nylon) inside the thread, which makes it much more difficult to undo - they're meant to be used in vibration-prone locations, or can also be used for security reasons - all they will do is slow down the thief as they never get "loose" - they are consistently tight until they're completely removed from the bolt thread...
