My company has been working on some diffrent types on mounts for the Ridgeline and a hood mount is on that list. I will keep every one updated on when the new mounts come out.

Out of curiosity, what is the dying need for this? Aesthetics? I am in the process of removing the Hella 500 driving light as my retrofits shine light further down the road. Also, the light bar fills in everything under 50 feet. With the retrofits, there is no need for fog lights either. These 4" cubes or whatever they are termed now, are just not powerful enough to make a difference in the long distance objects.

I would encourage everyone to just do a projector retrofit and a light bar. You wont need anything else.

Side light. I want some to project more towards the side of the truck for off road use. But for road use I agree..they don't put out enough usable light.

not sure if this has much correlation to the topic, but like someone mentioned, I have mounted 3" block lights on my bullbar with the 2.5" rounded clamp brackets, cheap and easy for a bit of extra light :)

Smuf, what retrofits are you using? I'm in the market for better lighting up front.

I am using Morimoto Mini H1- Stage 3 from retrofitsource.com. Since its a Bi-Xenon kit, the Highbeam functionality is retained. Also I went with the 50w ballast and a 5500K bulb. I was made aware that on the 50w ballasts, there is a 1000K color reduction, so mine are close to 4500K light output. If going with the 50W, I would recommend a 6500K bulb for a 5500K light output. I also got their Black RetroRubber (light housing sealant) and their IRIS projector Shroud.
