Just installed a set of Lightforce 170’s on the hilux. When bolting them on the bullbar I noticed that the clear lens comes off very easily.
Has anyone had a problem with lens falling off over corrugations or other rough terrain?

I have had mine for a year now and haven't had a lense come off, not even in a coles carpark which is where most bits seem to fall off. If you push them on the covers are tight enough to resist movement, and they hold water quite well I have found out too.

If you are unhappy with them, lightforce have the best warranty service going... Call them, they will replace them.

I bought 18 pr of 240's when I did a bulk buy, and have had no complaints.

Interested in you go with this, and how you find them, as I have a pr of 170's on the way for wifes Pathfinder.

Thanks Truckster.
The 240's seem to have a better fitting lens. I may just be paranoid but anyway I'll let you know how I go, I'm off this weekend to the Straddie Classic and then on to Inskip Pt. will be mostly beach work but will try to find a few bush tracks while I'm there...... 2 weeks R&R can't wait......

Gday mate, back from hols (worse luck) had a great coupla weeks not much fish to speak of but I said I would get back to you re the 170's......
Did the Kings Bore track.... only rough on a couple of sections, hit a bit of corragations on stradie and got caught out on a couple of creeks running high tide on the beach, lenses never budged, overall these lights s%$t on anything I've previously owned (narva's and the like), I can only imagine how good the 240's must be.....anyway they get my thumbs up.

Cheers

DiesAl,
I have a set of 240's and have never had a problem with the lens coming off ever and I have traveled over a fair amount of corrugations

Ditto - clips ons always stayed on mine - mine rotate at little at times, but they are quite snug as a fit - yours should clamp on tightly - if they are loose, they might be dodgy. ... as said they are good people to deal with.

Al,

I am sure I read in a review that you can bend the tabs on the side in to make it a more snug fit. I do not have these lights though so do not know if this is plausible or not. Anyway hope it helps.

Had my 170's for nearly 2 years. Never had a drama with the lenses.

Grub screws in covers into case of lights will hold them on even if in carpark and somebody would like some covers...sorry for the tip at the end of the post, but I learnt the hard way! Chris's covers : GONE!
