Westin bull bar with Hella 500 lights

Postby ExplorerTom - April 12th, 2014, 1:51 am

Decided to go with the Westin bull bar and some Hella 500 driving lights on the front of the Mariner. Here is my half hearted attempt at pics:

Mounted but not wired.

All ready to go. The license plate is partially covered. Doesn't bother me but hopefully the cops won't care.

The light output is pretty nice. I commute in the dark along some country highways and these help to throw more light out. Yet they are low enough that other drivers don't seem to mind. And when it's snowing, they shouldn't blind me like the headlights do.

Great looking! There seems to be a dearth of modified Mariners here, so it's nice to see some work on one.

Thanks! But I'm probably not going to get too crazy. My Explorer is for that. But I may upgrade the speakers. And while I've got the doors apart, add some kind of sound deadener. When the shocks wear out and I have to remove the interior plastic, add more deadener.

I sort of wished I would have gone for the full grill guard instead of the bull bar. Well, I managed to install it without trimming anything so who knows.......

Can you post a link to the Westin bar you used? Looks pretty good, I've been itching to add a cleanly-mounted lighting set up to my '05 Escape.
