    What spotlights/light bars have you fitted to your Freelander 1? Where and how?

    Photos welcome.

    I'm looking at making a custom rail shortly. Plan is it will be a single piece of bend tube, that comes out where the oem spot lights are.

    It will allow you to mount spotlights behind the bull bar (like my kangaroo bar) to protect them more in an impact or just in general.

    Thinking then to make it adjustable so if you want them central, low, high depending on spot light style and your preferences etc.

    I've a 126 Watt CREE LED light bar.
    Very bright with a good spread of light.

    It came from China, from a company called Kaleep, IIRC. I had to do loads of research to find one that was actually worth having. You'd be surprised just how exaggerated some of the makers claim the lights output to be. There are many that look the same, but use different quality LED emmiters. I only wanted CREE emmiters, this one using CREE XB-D 3 Watt 6000K emmiters does exactly what I need, and fits neatly in the space available.

    I have a very similar set up to Nodge. It replaced a pair of the OEM LR driving lights. See here for a photo.

    I quite like the G4 set up:

    If going down this route, I'd likely use an LED light bar similar to Nodge's in a similar position :)

    I do like the stealth look, so would probably put one behind the radiator grill next time. I put the one on the mother in law's V6 behind the lower bumper grill, which is invisible when turned off.

    I'll take them of your hands if you don't want them.
    Recently had a close encounter with a tree and now I'm missing one.
    No luck with breakers and I've been only able to find overpriced complete sets from deallers.
