    Finally found the time to knock out my first waterproof test on my new TUFF LED LIGHTING. The lights were submerged in a tub of water for well over an hour. I'm happy to report that the lights have passed the first water test with flying colors.

    Tonight I decided to do another waterproof test but this time I took advantage of the below freezing weather and left the light outside until it froze.

    Any other testing you guys wanna see?

    Today I plan on doing my last water proof test (freezing the light in the deep freezer) and a durability test (dropping a steel ball bearing on the lens).

    I don't know what other tests need to be done. I'm looking forward to seeing how they work once you install them. Pretty good testing so far.

    Tonight I got up the nerve to do a durability test on the lens. I wanted to see just how strong the polycarbonate lens were compared to glass AKA the cheap Chinese models.

    After searching for what seemed like an eternity I finally found a grill guard that I believe will suit my needs for my lighting project. The brush guard has a little surface rust but it's not a deal breaker. I plan on mounting the 42", 22", and the two 3.5" LED lights to it. Here is a preview of what I have in my head

    I picked up the grill tonight and its a lot heavier than I thought it was going to be. Its also made better than I expected. I'm looking forward to getting it cleaned up, the lights mounted, and it put on in the coming weeks.

    I think i'm going to mount the lighting behind the grill for added protection and mount it in the middle. What do you guys think?

    Does the grill affect the light beam at all? Maybe a test fit to make sure you're happy with the light they provide. They're tough enough I'd risk having them in the front if the grill affects the pattern too much. If not, extra protection is always better.

    I spoke to a fellow suburbanite and he said being mounted behind the grill makes them a pain in the arse to clean after and during mudding.

    Will they all turn on from one switch or be used separately? The 22" and 6"s look best in my opinion. Are any going on the rear of the Suburban?
