I've got my bar on now and it's awesome!

You'll find a problem mounting it down low in that it will throw shadows; I had this problem when I mounting driving lights in that position on my Outback.

There is a story of a guy up around Gympie way that used to play with semi trailers, he would goad them into using their spotlights to get him to dim his lights, then he would hit them with an array of 240v spotlights that he had running off a generator in a trailer he was towing.

One smart trucky who got caught up in his game was ready for him, as they passed in the opposite direction the trucky let fly with a handful of ball bearings, he rang the cops and told them where to find the guy and his trailer in the ditch on the side of the road.

Thats some dangerous games. Worse thing for me on road is to be blinded from other cars lights. That moment you get so bad feeling of bad accident that could happen because of that. Worse thing ever is raining at night and you driving on 2 lane road with non stop in front driving cars.

@subyroo

So it ended in a well deserved "balls-up"
