    A friend ("keeping her wet" on here, the guy who helped you out when your boat had trouble) is running these on his Rhino and says they are great. Rupse Offroad ATV bar, 36 watts, cost = $40- on Amazon.
    I'm planning to mount a set on O-boat myself.

    I installed a set of 4-1/2" round LED lights on my 2013 Rhino 700 like the ones shown in this forum. However, I removed the OM lights and replaced them with the LED ones as shown by "Alaskan" (my Rhino looks just like Alaskan's Rhino with the same lights).

    I've got some northern light leds, I like the bars with the 10 watt leds, imo they give better light. I've had rigid bars before, to me they are not worth a penny more than the northern light leds. But the rigids are made in the USA..i also went with shorter bars on the rhino, the longer ones get beat up to bad near the sides of the rhino. I've got 40 watt bars on the wheelers, and around 160 watts total on the rhino.

    I also like to ride at night, with my light bars!

    Rob,
    Mounted one of the 36 watt led's on the front of 3 Poles, works great.Installed it just under the radar, should be handy deer hunting next month.

    The 2 small ones are ridged industries duallys the other one I just bought after reading this thread It's the no name 36 w bar. It's supposed to be brighter than the duallys but its not as concentrated as the other two even though they are all spot light patterns

    I put an 18" led on my big boss. I mounted it so it can face the front or back. I bought it from northern lights LEDs in anchorage. I think it was $170.00. We dressed a moose in the dark without any troubles. Here are a few photos.

That coupled w/ changing out the headlights to HID's (5000K) (ebay - $40?), makes for an excellent combination when going down a trail at night. The HIDs throw a wide flat light, and the LED takes up the slack for the middle of the trail. Out on open terrain, it throws a wide wall of light at least 100yds (or more) in front of you.

    I also mounted an 18W LED ($28 for 2) on the back bumper. It works very well. I use the vehicle to plow snow w/, and it makes it great for backing up at night. I mounted both switches on the dash and they are lighted, so I can see if they get turned on accidently or not.

    Also - w/ this combination,although the amount of light is at least 3-4x of a stock set-up, it is still less taxing on the electrical system. The HID's are 35W each, replacing the original 55W bulbs (less than 6 amps vs 9 amps total) and the front 36W LED only draws 3 amps, while the rear one draw 1.5 amps. Unless moving at speed, one could actually just use the 36W on the front and only draw 3 amps.
    I like the way you think. Not only did you increase the output by 3-4 times you did it by not causing other problems. I am impressed!! I think that the first time Iíve ever said that when it came to someone modifying a atv electrical system. :topjob:

    I have a 9" VisionX on my headache rack pointing rearward thar a flood pattern. Amazing light that came in handy this year. Backed the 6 by up to the downed bull and flipped on the light and quartered him up without direct beam headlamps making things harder.....you'll like it.
    A rear facing light is a must!! I have a another OPT7 in a flood pattern sitting on my workbench ready to be installed just for that purpose. Before I mount it I need to get a battery box made up so I can run a second battery like you did. I figure with two winches and two light bars, it wouldn't take much to kill the single battery.

    WOW. Bright as can be. Love the new light. Thanks BKmail for putting me onto it. Moose hunted late last night and when we rode out, it was hard to tell if my stock lights were even on or not. Very well built light.

    I'll let ya know after I test it out tonight. But inside the garage with the lights off it's hard to even tell that the stock lights are on
