Anyone use low profile roof lights?

My company sells a light bar for our utility vehicle that has four low profile lights on it. They're about 1.5" tall and 3" wide. Anyone have pictures of a setup like this? I'm just wondering if it'll look goofy because they're so small.

I thought about mounting the low profile lights under the factory rail.

I think if you put them that far back and that low that your roof will block a lot of the light from landing in front of the truck. Might be ok if you're mounting narrow beam lights aimed way out in front, though.

Ya, i did what the installer said. They seem to work well for wide light, but dont shine nearly as far as my hella's. I like them because they aren't really that noticeable.

Out of curiosity, who made those and what bulbs do they use? I've been looking for something like that for a while.

Out of curiosity, what made you change your mind on that? I'm actually considering doing the same thing.

oo7ravisXJ,
Can you take closer pics of the roof lights? I like that set up. Are your parking lights blacked out?

Thats sweet looking ride man. I just got my wife one just like that. I'd love to get some more info on those tails and blackened parking lights.

You said your company makes a light bar. You got pics of it? I'd like to see what your talking about.
