We bought a 6 light bar from a guy on ebay. Tsunami was the name of it I think. Came with wiring harness and extra wire. Under $300 including shipping.

We got a six light bar. Very bright. Great for heading back to the launch and loading in the dark. It was easy to wire. The guy at Tsunami also machines the clamps to fit your tower.

We have 4 facing front and 2 facing back. We stay out til after dark 3-4 times a week. All that light comes in handy.


What the heck is "frog gigging"??

The FUSION 4 light bar. That's what we have. Very bright - AMAZING qualilty. $400 @ our dealer. You could probably find them cheaper somewhere else. We have our set up with two facing forward and two facing back - Best looking light bar IMO.

Mine are built right into the MC speaker housings hanging from the tower. Don't even know they are there until you hit the switch and watch the BUGS swarm. Probably not the "best" for the money, but the looks (or lack thereof) is unmatched.

Amen about the bugs. They are ridiculous when those lights are on. We stayed out way too late on the River a couple of evenings last year. I had to clean bug guts and insect limbs for 3 or 4 hours each day after.

Do thay make LIGHT covers yet? Or better yet tower covers for them? I've been asking my dealer, and NO is the best response I get.

I did see there is an option for a tower cover on the '06's. I wonder if this means people have been asking for them:rolleyes: ...

I've seen speaker covers (slip-on types) and maybe light covers on Ebay before.

I have a few sets of "covers" for my KC daylighters, but none of them fit. I was hoping for some "direct" fit. I'll have to keep looking, or have someone make me some. Towing fills them up with bugs pretty quick. I'd like something durable and good looking enough to leave on them all the time. Not sure of a solution, but I'll find one. I wonder if Billet would work? I'll have to think about that.

I made a set last year. go to Lowe's and buy a 2'x2' section of diamond plate (like the truck boxes), and some stainless steel nuts and bolts. Then go to Wal Mart (or auto parts store) and buy some universal fog lights in the style you are looking for. cut the diamond plate to the width between the two main tower bars, mount the lights to that, then mount the diamond plate to the tower. All in all, I did a 4 light bar for under $100, and it worked PERFECT, and the diamond plate adds a little "bling"

I bet that diamond plate looks pretty good on the tower.
