    Self taping screws or did you drill through and put bolts on the end with lock tight?

    I'm thinking of drilling through and running bolts through with a nut and locking washer on the end.

    Probably overkill and over engineered, but with it out in the dirt I don't want it jiggling loose.

    Just finished install yesterday of the D2 driving beam in amber and white I also have a set of D2 wide beam in white also so I have those to compare. One thing I noticed so far is the white is much brighter then the amber, The white is blinding but the amber is not.

    I used stainless bolts and nylon nuts with lock washers so my D2 brackets wont shake loose, not a big fan of the self tapers that were included in the kit.

    Hey Trey. Going to wire mine up this week. What gauge wire did you use for ground and (+)?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Hey Wht. Were you the one at Texas blinding everyone behind you????

    LOL no I'm kidding. Rich (madcow) and I got behind someone that had D2s or something that would blind the hell out of us behind him.

    Whatever y'all go with, don't blind the person behind you. Get a non-directional (non-beam) light or something diffused is my humble opinion.
