    Have went out with them yet these are the only 2 that are hooked up at the moment. Going to do the rest tommrow morning. But once i get them set and place where i want them ill go out on a night trip and let everyone know.. i do recommend just buying the wiring harness from the dealer of the lights the Amazon one wasnt bad but.... it was to short so i had to make it my own. Im probably going to order the real harness eventually for it.

    But i do love the look of the lights as of now I highly recommend them there easy to install and hide away pretty easy but i do have the issue with them coming back on after the switch is off im going to get a different switch tommrow n see what happens with that.

    A'ght. I have a new Rigid Industries harness all boxed up, and will be sent out tomorrow. Harness is good for 150 watt lights, so it will be no problem for the set you have. :) You'll just have to cut the plug off, and connect to your lights.
