Cool Surface mount "BRIGHT" 12v exterior lighting.

.


Buddy has new trailer and has no outside lighting
He wants something without having to cut in the buckets.
I know it was posted awhile ago there are some nice models, but what's the latest & greatest you've seen or bought??

A guy near us had some surface mount LED's but they weren't very bright, and he had 4-5 and it was just too weak.

Thanks Guys.

I thought you saw the swing outs on mine. 1 in the front and 1 in the back. Bolted from the inside. I have to find out where he got them from when he had the trailer spec built.These are the retro fit lamps that go in the buckets i have. 6000 Lumens. Blinding.... Won't even phase the generator.

That's not what I'm looking for.
A permanent exterior low profile flood light instead of the buckets most of us have.
Something bright, 4,000-5,000 plus and very inconspicuous instead of big ass buckets.

I used these Pit Pal lights on my last trailer. 2 of them are all you need & they come in handy for other situations.
Only issue I had was they get very hot & have to cool off before you can put them back in the trailer & head home.

Thanks for the link, but not even close to what we want.
Flush mount, LED style, permanent & inconspicuous like I posted, not some big ass flame throwers.
I've seen those before, and they were definitely bright, but he's not interested in anything like that.

I just installed some LED lights that need no buckets. You can check my link that shows the lights and what or how much they put out. I like these lights. I did have to use those crimp nuts for splicing as the wire are hard to fit into the back area of the light. I got it installed. The photo shows little orange wire nuts I used that to test the fixtures.

https://photos.app.goo.gl/H4ZtRBK7V7hqXULi9

I got these from JEGS, 24" 600 Bulb LED Exterior Light Panel, Part Number : 555-81936, they run about $134.99 per fixture.

I also installed 4 on the passenger side for pit lighting. Then I added 2 more, 1 on the back of the trailer and one on the drivers side towards the back. Those 3 will turn on when I put my truck in reverse. I used some relays to allow individual switches by the side door to turn on each light as needed as well as the pit side.

Sweet, rated at 4000 & they are on sale for $119.99
That should be bright enough with 2.

My inTech trailer came with these. Plenty bright that inTech had to put them on a dimmer. Rated at 6500

gnxtC2 gave you the Whelen link, any decent parts house should be able to order them. Big rig truck parts stores may have them in stock.

OK, just back from the IHRA team finals and 2 of the Guys pitted with us had these and they were perfect.
Probably a little weaker than the fancy Intech ones, but I just ordered 3 from ebay for less than one of theirs.

That's for the help GTO & Guys!!!
