It is 94.5" from the pivot.

The only complaint is that the straps are not holding up to UV if left out in the elements for extended periods of time. I don't see that as a design flaw because I shouldn't leave it out but, I am going to sleeve the straps with something to make it last longer if I choose to leave it outside.

When I went to Boulder Toyota, they had one that didn't get silk screened. It doesn't mean anything, just added it to the 'mods' to be silly.

That's a fine looking cargo barrier by the way
John and I went out last night and played with the lights. These are not the Dually 2s diffused, just the Duallys diffused. The light is really good task lighting as it is very even like sunlight is. My thought is that they would be way too bright if used in a place you were looking directly at them but if, reflected off a surface, the light would be great.

This is a pic of the Dually's and headlights at about 200 yards.

I realize this doesn't really answer your question, just that the light is effective at 200 yards. Take the same light and shine it a cutting board, you might have a little more than you wanted.
