    Love this video.
    My first LED bar was 180W of reasonable quality, I really liked it and it performed well. But the light went everywhere.
    I now have a single Hella lightbar, 36W, but with a better optics design. Puts light down the road at about 400-500m, like the old bar, but the light is trimmed vertically, so I don’t shine up in the trees any more. A decent improvement, from a smaller bar.

    Legally, your only allowed an extra four auxiliary lights, facing forward. Also, none on top of yer roo bar. IB-132C is the document u might want to read.

    The spread and range of lights is one thing, you really need to focus on the color temperature of the lights. The Kelvin value. 5500K is good for most people in general conditions. But a bit of fog, a bit of rain, a bit of dust….4300K is way better for visibility. It simply just easier for the eyes. The Amber/Yellow covers that Harry was talking about in his Modified video. Also, 5500K creates more shadows than 4300K.

    Great stuff. I would like to see your recommended config between white light and amber. I run a lot in snow (US – High Sierra) and dust (Desert). You mention staying out of dust but not using a good mix of amber vs. white. I use HID for headlights that throw a tight line and good distance. I am considering an amber bar (30 inch) for snow and dust and white spots for augmented visual distance off road. Thoughts?

  5. Forrest Strong on January 22, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    What about yellow lights or amber for the dust? I just recently got some of visionX’s selective yellow lights they are supposed to be much better for dust,snow, and rain and whatnot because it doesn’t reflect as much. I haven’t used them too much yet but I think having the yellow lights are going to be really nice for certain situations.

    Hey ronny! Thinking about the idling, what happens with the LED lights that are on the market, do they still drain your battery a lot? Thinking about comments on how some LED’s dont really drain the power but on a higher level it could happen, can you explain? How can you keep track of the volts with a stock and almost basic setup (only running led’s 9inch semi cheap halogens and a power plant for the speakers) cheers from Costa Rica!

  7. WhiteCavendish on January 22, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Another great vid! Off road lights are coming up on my list of mods sometime soon, so this vid was super useful. Cheers, mate!

  8. david cameron on January 22, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Spot lights on your bullbar should be cross-eyed, just a small amount . This will give e you a better spread and a more intense centre. Jmho.

  9. Ryno Opperman on January 22, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    Simpilar solution… 😜
    Don’t drive at night, its not necessary Ronnie… you just like playing with your lights

    So much better driving during the day

  10. goverat on January 22, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    With dust, i found fog lights with no spotlights work well

  11. NasTime Adventures on January 22, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Some good tips and making me rethink the cheaper lights. Cheers.

  12. Abraham Reyes on January 22, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Do you use a backup generator just in case your power in your battery is drained?

  13. JasonISF on January 22, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    I use and recommend STEDI 4wd lighting. Brilliant high quality lights for the money.

  14. Laloo Lhouvum on January 22, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Ronny, your lights just amazing. I love them very much. But there’s a problem and that is money. Cheapest ARB set of spot beam with wire is ₹87K, which is a lot of money. Those light bars may be rigid, baja Or KC.. American can get them in just a couples of 100 dollars. Most expensive one’s may 1.5K dollars, but in rupees a set of rigid is ₹27K. Those Lp pro 6/7 are around ₹75-85Ks. Indian brand are not good enough. Chinese one’s are better cheaper and brighter, but doesn’t really last long. It’s hard to get a good light here in India especially for a middle class family like us. Super rich people can get it easily, but for us it’s a 5-7 years project.

    Thoughts on Amber lights?

  17. John Borg Jacob on January 22, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    not sure if i missed it earlier, but noticed you are using alloy wheels, i remember you favoring steel wheels before

  18. The adventures of marley and me on January 22, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    The real question is , where’s wayne?? 😩

  19. Jared Sims on January 22, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Congrats on winning the AFL Grand final Ronny, you had a great game, best ruckman in the game.

  20. Deon Dorfling on January 22, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    Hi Ronny. An alternative list setup I used was with the original truck lights upgraded and 4 external spotties The side spotties were set slightly to the left and right and the middle ones slightly up.. The ones to the sides gave great vision to see "around corners". When a track zig sags you can see what’s to come and the ones that are shining slightly up helps when approaching slight inclines in road conditions and also when driving down hills. When driving down hill the main lights light up in front of you but the spotties light up what’s to come up ahead. So the road is covered ahead of you but also the approaching corner and also the road above where your main lights can’t light up. Hope it is informative. Thanks for the great content. Regards Deon.

    When you are on the highway and some a$$ comes at you with their bright lights on. I Hit all of my off road lights. Yep, they get the hint real fast.

  22. Troopy Doopy Doo on January 22, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    Are you blind when you turn you high beams down – yes – they are too bright
    Are you blind when you turn you high beams down – no – your lights are good
    Next!?

  23. Nick Cradock on January 22, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    I’ll keep my fyrlyt’s

  24. Out There With Dan on January 22, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Great advice. Another safe reason to drive at night – depending on the situation – avoid dusk and dawn wildlife activity. Cheers

  25. Song Lover on January 22, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    hey Ronny, would you recommend a high-amp alternator (and also what amp do the three vehicle alternators have?)? cheers!

  26. Peter Meeny on January 22, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    (Tip) I always make sure the driving lights don’t protrude past the Bullbar. That way small nudge or obstacle strike has less chance to smash them .

  27. Damien Frizzell on January 22, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Why you not touch on amber lights like Harry has?

  28. Leigh Healey on January 22, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Best tip for lights is throw all that junk in the bin and get Aussie made Ultra Vision Lighting, best lights on the market.

  29. Corey Dark on January 22, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    With cheap lights I run a Kings number plate light on my small car it’s better than the standard lights and worth every cent. It doesn’t the job and couldn’t justify spending the extra $$$ for a number plate light bar unless I was buying a brand new 4wd. If I get the cheap temporary tow car I’ll be throwing one on it too as it’s better than nothing and can’t justify spending $$$ on a $2-3k 4wd tow car which is for the 1300kg ski boat.

  30. Shahnawaz hanjra on January 22, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Thanxx Ronny 👍🇦🇺keep it up

  31. Rob Seager on January 22, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    G’day Ronny, I hate to be a killjoy but you are only allowed to fit 4 extra headlights to a vehicle – Road Traffic (Vehicles) Regulations 2014 – 286.Motor vehicle headlights to be fitted – (4) Up to 4 additional headlights may be fitted to a motor vehicle with 4 or more wheels, a motor cycle or a motor tricycle. Just saying.

  32. Stephen Biggs on January 22, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    i like your vid if possible can u do a comparison video between cheap light to the most expressive and mid of the road thanks

  33. Auxbeam LED Lighting on January 22, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    👍

  34. Ray Duerksen on January 22, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Improve your night vision by dimming your dash lights, simple trick almost no one knows.

  35. 4x4 Stationwagon on January 22, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Do you ever run a rear facing amber light in dusty conditions?

  36. Derek Mathieson on January 22, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Another great video Ronny, quick question…. How do you get power to your roof bar? Do you drill holes in the bodywork?

  37. Daniel on January 22, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    There is such a thing as too much light, especially on the highway because when you swap back to low beam the light difference means your eyes take longer to adjust, combined with light reflection from signage bouncing back into your face.

  38. geoff spence on January 22, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Hey has anyone seen a video of tips for people four wheel driving or off reading with injuries or disabilities?

  39. Ronny Dahl on January 22, 2022 at 6:48 pm
  40. adi Nugraha on January 22, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    could you make a video of comparison pajero sport and fortuner, especially on off road trip

  41. Steven Ruskin on January 22, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Harry has the right idea.
    I fitted proper halogen fog lights, amber bulb and lenses, dosnt reflect off dust any where near as much.
    Go the amber lights

  42. Worlds Worst Musician on January 22, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Are roof mounted lights even legal? Pretty sure led headlights are illegal in most states and I know light bars mounted on top of bull bars are illegal 🤔

  43. Robert Lewis on January 22, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    thank you for share this detail video with other

  44. Thomas Dawkins on January 22, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Hello Ronnie – I have one thing of expensive kings laser driving lights that produce upto 2km of light + cheap light bar for night driving I find though the cheap one is shit on the highway with it as a combo they really help with just the extra flood too the sides of the road which my spot lights slightly miss being more for distance

  45. Comfortable on January 22, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Good tips for young players.

  46. The Overland Adventures of Zach Novosad on January 22, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    i bought some cheap spotlights for my Subaru Outback not wanting to put a ton of money into it and frankly they’re definitely more of a flood than spot. even though i wasn’t expecting super great quality i expected a little more throw than i get. my high beams actually shoot further so half the time i don’t even use them on road because i don’t get nearly enough distance to actually see unless i’m somewhere wooded.

  47. matt on January 22, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Bad advice No more then 4 driving lights or light bars in wa

  48. mylt1z28 on January 22, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Ronny, you guys should look into high idle kits for when you are winching or when you need you run your lights while stationary. We run them on our ambulances here in the states for when we are on scene of calls with the lights and AC running. They will keep the RPM’s up so you are producing more power from your alternator to cover the loads being run.

  49. Sainbayar Battur on January 22, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    I was looking for the video exactly like this, thnx man

  50. 9kram8 on January 22, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    I love my 2 led camp lights on the roof rack. Between them and reverse camera (and mirrors of course) getting to the top of a dune and realising going over is no good or not making all way up etc makes seeing behind on a narrow section so much easier!!! On the front I just have a set of stedi type x pro’s and do alot of long distance night drives and they are perfect for the highway
