Hey guys, I recently installed ditch lights. I went with RUN-D lights off amazon for around $100. Paired with Rago fab low pro brackets. I did research before purchasing, from the $20 auxbeams to $300 kc’s. Very happy with the light output, each are RATED at 2800 lumens. You’ll notice these have 7 leds (cree) vs most others which only have 4. The hardware included is all quality stainless, no blemishes anywhere on either light. Oh and there’s no weird typos throughout the paperwork, which usually means you’ve just bought chinese junk. Would recommend these to anybody! Hid my wiring behind the trim panel, and utilized my factory dummy switch by drilling it out to fit the new switch. Will add night photos soon.

Those look really good. When you see the pic of them not installed, they look like they would be really big. Doesn’t look to be the case. I’m checking them out now!

Those look great, how is the light output and warranty on these? I ended up going with KC's but these seem like a good deal for what your getting

Thanks for the write-up on these! I always try to tell people there's nothing wrong with going this route for some simple lights. If they light shit up, they light shit up. Sure, there are reasons to buy the expensive stuff (which I do anyway), but this works too!
