Daymaker running lights

Anyone try the running lights in this set? Just wondering if they'll fit, and what type of mounting stuff I'll need.

Thanks!

That looks sweet. My head light is modulated, don’t think I can use that on an LED head light

You have to do major dremel surgery on the Aux lights. My buddy did a video on exactly how to do it on Facebook. Custom Vaquero Nation group.

Any chance he could post a copy of the video here or on You Tube?

Edit: I found a walk-around... Still looking for a how-to.

It is more economical and easier to only do the headlight. I have purchased a LED Daymaker/JW Speaker knock off headlight from Superbright LED which has more light output than either according to technical specs. I modified a new OEM bracket to accept the headlight mounting and need to have both spot welded together to mount.

I will say retro fitting headlight or aux lights with LED or HID bulbs is not way to go and will make light beam pattern focus worse and blind people. Yes it's "bright" but not effective.

Interesting. Mentioned getting the lights to the wife. Didn't get the "what's wrong with the one on there" question. Also didn't get "fine" as an answer.

In married terms, that all but here's the cash to do it.
