yea.. that was the thought.. recycle the squads.. how are you mounting the trac boards? I thought I was privy to most of the mounting systems for our trucks.. appears I am not lol..Yes, LP4 on SDHQ mounts. They only use 1 hole for mounting to the brackets. I’d assume they would work?? Really happy with the lights, added the little blockers to the inside of the passenger light. That was a bit annoying but all good now.
Take the squadrons and use them as rear bumper or dust lights. Win/win
wish i knew about the those brackets before.. are they less expensive than BDs? they won't even sell you the brackets unless you can prove you had bought their lights and they were still bout 160 for the pair of brackets..
and it appears that is the going price for those style of brackets..Those bracket he has appear to be from SDHQ. The visible bolt is the give-away as theirs is a 2 piece bracket. The lights appear to be the BD LP's. Nice set-up!
I have the BD XL 80 A-pillar lights and love them. What I didn't love was their bracket. I ended up with the SPV Heavy Duty bracket (link below). That bracket leaves a nice even gap between the bracket and the fender. I've heard great things about SDHQ brackets too.
My advice would be either XL 80 or LP4 on the A-pillar. Even the Squadrom Pro's are half the light output as either of these two lights. Unless you have a light bar up higher, these will be your main off road lights, so go big! Also, get the amber lens. Clear on the A-pillar isn't good in anything but perfect air. Rain, fog, snow, dust, they all reflect light too much with a clear lens with having the light source at your windshield.
SPV Parts HEAVY DUTY 2021+ Raptor/ F-150 A - Pillar (Ditch) Mounts (Fits most 3" Light pods)These SPV A-Pillar Mounts will hold MANY Pod lights by Rigid, Baja Designs, Diode Dynamics and many others. This heavy duty, one piece design allows you to quickly and easily bolt in the bracket without even removing the cowl. Unlike our standard duty bracket, and many other brackets available...specialtyperformanceparts.com
the extra bolt on side is why i asked originally if you had the LPs.. thought when i looked at them online.. it had two mounting bolts..actually just looked at them now and they have 3 holes. guess you can use just center hole.. as you guys did, lol..
