Default Black out lights behind the grill?
Wondering if anyone has seen some black out style light bars for behind the grill? Looking to put something there that's less noticeable than your typical setup. Something kinda like this:

What lights are those? I've been waiting for Rigid to come out with a solution but it seems they've given up on the Gen 2

I'd have to check but they were ok roughcountry.com I think. Maybe CREE's.

I'd really like a RDS Single Midnight in 40" from Rigid. That would be great. Low profile, hidden attachments and wouldn't block the camera. Same with the pockets, 10" RDS (in the opposite direction) to fit perfectly.

I bought the BD S8 grill kit. I swapped all the screws for black, and added a 70% viynl tint to take away some glare. I'll see around a 8% decrease in light output, but I dont care. Havn't installed it yet...

That is exactly what I'm looking for. Would this fit or better to go with the 30"? And it looks like all theirs are curved -- is that how the S8 is or is it straight?

Would be interested to see it once installed.

Definitely would need to be curved. anything straight (unless it's small) just won't look right and stick out over the lips when the bumper curves. RDS is the curved light from Rigid.

That looks great! I was skeptical that the tint would make a difference, but it really looks like it did. I may go with the dual M&R 50" kit and add the tint like you did. Thanks!

Check out the Rigid industries midnight editions. It sounds like it might be what you want.
