Here is something a little more functional to go along with the lights. 45quart Engel with the Platinum drop slide.

Japanese design, made in Thailand.

Mike I'm gearing up to do a rear bumper build soon. How are those Dually diffused lights? Thoughts on using one as a backup light and another as a work light? I plan to build my own version of the Kaymar work light as simply buying it is stupid expensive for what it is.

That's a fine looking cargo barrier by the way

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.

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.

Also picked up one of the Larson task LEDs for use around the truck. This works great stuck on the side of the truck when airing up tires and stuff.

LED Flood Light w/ Magnetic Base - Compact Design - 0.5 Amp Draw - 32 LEDs - 500 Lumen - 9-32VDC - MagnaLight

Made in the U.S.A.

The picture at 200 yards away didn't do it justice. With all of the lights on it looked like the sun was rising on the horizon. I also liked that the Dually diffused lights really do a good job of spreading light everywhere. I think it make setting up camp really easy after dark.
I'll gonna have to ping Christo to see if he can have a custom light bar built for the ARB.

Default IP65 dripping epoxy glue, yeah baby!

Those remind me of the ice cream shop lights when I was a kid, and my dad drove us there in a split window microbus.
