Rigid Ignite Light Install

After much contemplation about where to install these lights, I finally settled on a location. I purchased light mounts from Amazon, and mounted these inside my engine guards ( hopefully to protect these expensive little things in the event of a laydown). I ran the wires through the shrouds around the radiator and used grommets to add a factory look. I installed a relay which is triggered by the power to the taillight. The power switch is from Amazon as well.
I installed a flood beam on the clutch side, and a spot on the throttle side.
I have not had an opportunity to test ride these, but initial night review seems to be positive. The spot offers a noticeable increase in illuminated area + distance. I am less sure about what the flood may offer. At least it should offer much more attention to oncoming drivers in daytime.
