Hi all

Will Lightforce 240s fit onto/into the Toyota Classic Alloy bullbar on my 90 series Prado? I know they will "fit" but I'm concerned about the new laws (NSW at least) that forbid any protrusion from a vehicle... Has anyone done this? Any new holes to be drilled? Would Lightforce 170s be almost as good (240s can be had for abt the same $$)? Keen to buy some 240s from Outback Proven (goooood price) but don't want to mount them and then cop a ticket from some well-meaning member of the constabulary..

Cheers in advance
Rich

Hi Rich
I like the 170s because they don't block off so much air to the radiator, plus as i posted just recently they light up reflectors at 3.1klm'
See the gap between them in the photo Rich

Thanks Doug - the 170's seem to make a lot of sense...just thought that for a few extra $$ I can get the extra bit of distance - guess 3.1k of reflectors is sufficient! How much of the road itself do u reckon gets lit up?

PS Gotta tell u a funny story - driving one night with my mother-in-law in the back seat, she commented upon seeing the reflectors that my headlights were illuminating "those reflectors should be solar-powered". I tried to explain that they are "headlight-powered" but she insisted that she knew best.....

Rich
here is a segment of the post i had about 3 days ago which will answer your last one to me

i got two 170s and i reackon theyre the ants pants, I have measured the distance to a reflected sign on the Barkly Hwy and got 3.1klm, now i don't need to see cows etc at 3.1 Ks but if one is on the road at 400 meters I will se it in time. but if a cow or roo darts out from the scrub right at you then no matter how good the lights are it's not going to help, in fact the lights won't be any good at all after the roo has busted them.
here is a little helpful hint from an outbacker, sub-consciously keep an eye on the reflectors 5/600 m in front, if one goes out and comes on again be ready, someting has walked past it

Be careful on a 90 / 120 series prado. The LF240 can block a lot of airflow, particularly to the intercooler etc.

I personally would go 170's. The light output is not a lot less but the airflow is important.
