Help choosing a light setup
I've already been PMing with a couple of people with cool setups, but I thought I'd throw it open to everyone for advice.
I'd like to get some bright lights to use in Alaska / the north, where I'm going and where it's pretty common to see moose / deer / etc on the road.
I initially gravitated toward a roof-mounted light bar that attaches to the OEM roof rack (BajaRack makes a cool one, as do some others), with four lights on it.
But is this flat-out illegal for on-road use, even in remote / dark areas?
I'm also concerned about glare off the hood from a roof-mount setup, since i have a white roof.
The other option would be bumper-mounted, but the OEM Hella 500s might not be enough, and I've been told that bigger lights (like Hella Rallye 1000 Black Magics) can't be supported by the stock bumper without reinforcement.
Help! Ideas? I just want to flood the night and see the moose when I'm alone on the road, and hopefully not get arrested in the process.
I'd like to stay under $1500 all-in (with installation by a shop, probably). Should be doable.
