What Lights Should you Choose with These Brackets?

The position of these brackets along the outside of the A-pillars makes these brackets great for angled ditch lighting, while their height over the hood also makes them perfectly capable of long-range forward spot lighting. You can't really go wrong with either methodology, though there are specific lights that you should probably go with for one task or another.

Ditch Light Options
If you're looking for some more side ditch lighting or angled outboard lighting, you're going to need off-road LED lights with a wide beam pattern so that you get visibility down the roadside or treeline in as broad an area as possible. Using the Grimm Brackets for ditch lighting is an especially good idea in areas with a lot of wildlife that may wander onto the road without much warning. Good options for ditch lighting include Rigid Dually Flood Lights, Rigid D2 Driving Lights, Rigid 4" 360 Driving Beam lights, Baja Designs Squadron Sport Wide/Cornering Lights, Baja Designs Squadron Pro Wide/Cornering Lights, Baja Designs LP4 Driving/Combo Lights, or KC HiLites Flex Era 3 Combo Beam lights.

Spot Light Options
If you're going to use the Grimm brackets for forward spot lighting, then you'll need off-road LED lights that produce a tight, long-range light beam that gives you and your truck the range you need to spot problems way down the trail. Spot lighting is en especially good idea if your F150 or Raptor is going to be doing high-speed trail runs after the sun goes down. Lights like the Rigid Dually Spot Lights, Rigid D2 Driving Lights, Rigid 360 4" LED Spot Beam Lights, Baja Designs Squadron Sport Spot Lights, Baja Designs Squadron Pro Spot Lights, or KC HiLites Era 3 Spot Beam Lights.
