Quote: While the popup lights look like a cool idea, in an offroad vehicle, exposed to mud and grit, simplicity rules the roost. You'll spend alot of time working up a design that will likely get gummed up with muck and rust down the road.
This is exactly why i've posted this guy on the wire, i'm lookin for that design that won't. I want this bumper and all features to last through everything. I've seen some great fabrication posted on this site, and the input on my design is awsome. Although, i would really like to continue to go out of the box and really come up with something which is basic, functional, and unique at the same time. I hadn't anticipated a couple of things already, like weight issues and now how to get these lights to efficiently go up and down, and now thinking about it i probably wouldn't want to use any motors to raise these lights. I also don't want to build them into the bumper because if they burn out or a wiring problem happens, i don't want to have to pull the whole thing off just to fix one little wire. I also would like them to be able to point wherever i want them to. I still havn't come up with the best way to do all the functions, but i'm sure we will by winter! I'm doing my measuring twice right now so i'm not under the gun later. thanks for the input guys!
