    Only worth it of off road at night or very isolated roads with no natural light.

    Thank you. Since getting the BD Squadrons, I've realized (1) I made the right choice of light, (2) they do a phenomenal job in near-to-mid range, and (3) if I really want to improve long-distance down range (thinking: high beam plus plus) lighting, I'm going to have to mount them high up (like on top of the cab). With less than an inch of roof clearance in my garage as is, that would seem to leave me with the curved light bar over the windshield...not quite the look I'm going for. I'm going to have to look into whether anyone has mounted a S8 (or other 30-40 inch light bar) near the top of the grill and whether that is high enough to go far down range (without interfering the grill shudders, etc.).

    Thanks again for your reply!

    I also fit the cut out... used a vibrating saw to cut and a dremel to grind smooth. It was worth it to me because i like the look. BUT i also did the the flush mount as several others have done and it looks great.... flush with outside of grill so you can’t see cuts. Additionally, i used security hardware to dissuade anyone from a quick grab.

    I don't know: do you have enough light? I mean, the OnX6 is only 11,000 plus lumens; the Squadron Sports (assuming they are ONLY Sports) are approximately 6300 lumen/pair (12,600 lumen), and the S2 Sports are only 2300 lumen/pair (4800 lumen/pair if they're pros). Since the OEM lights (only) put out 2200-2400 lumen (low beam), you will find yourself thinking your headlights are actually weak!

    I have Squadron Racers and Pro's in fogs so likely different than sports....but its worth it IMO.
    Only regret is I didn't go with laser ONX6 instead...haha! A few specifics on mine...

    Upfitter Toggles
    • Upfitter 2: 15 amp - Main Fogs (18,400 Lumens total)
    • Upfitter 3: 10 amp - Sec (amber) Fog (4,900Lumens total)
    • Upfitter 4: 10 amp - Low Grill (12,460 total lumens)

    Lights: Total BD light output
    • Two (2) Squadron Racer Editions in Spot (4300 Lumens Each, 40watts/3.3amps = 80watts/6.6amps)
    • Two (2) Squadron Pros in Driving Combo (4900 Lumens Each, 42watts/3.5amps = 84watts/7.0amps
    • Two (2) S2 Pros in Wide Cornering (3.6 amps total, 2450 Lumens Each)
    • One (1) 10" OnX6+ High Power lower grill driving/combo light (12,460 Lumens, Watts/Amps: 108W/8.4A)

    It'd be like looking into the sun. I (only) have 3 pair of BD Squadron Sports and I thought that got the job done.

    Haha...front and rear!
    Once I get my Honeybadger rear bumper, I'll be up to 55,500 lumens spread over 5 up fitter switches.

    Upfitter Toggles / Total BD light output = 55,620 LUMENS
    • Upfitter 1: 15 amp - Honeybadger rear 10" light bars x2 (12,700 lumens), + two (2) Rigid (4752 Lumens) = (17,450lumens total)
    • Upfitter 2: 15 amp - Main Fogs (18,400 Lumens total)
    • Upfitter 3: 10 amp - Sec (amber) Fog (4,900 Lumens total)
    • Upfitter 4: 10 amp - Low Grill (12,460 total lumens)
    • Upfitter 5: 5 amp - 3rd brake light - GJ Motorsports (2260 total Lumens)
    • Upfitter 6: 5 amp - VHF Radio
