    Saw a Truck with the front light bar attached to the front of the bucket recently, forget where. Kind of late in the process for that solution though.

    LOL! that is funny in so many ways, especially if the present predicts the future (or lack of).



    You and snowball are awesome. Like click and clack, mike and ike, or Mark Mcguire and Jose Canseco.

    Nope, you're wrong, and again a useless response, but thanks anyway!

At night, between the red led's on the roof, and the white bucket sticking out in front of the truck, makes for miserable driving. Anybody have any solutions to this problem?? Only thing we could figure out is we disconnected the middle and inner portions of the mini bars on the roof, so as we're still getting light off to the side. We also put some of that black, sticky sandpaper looking stuff on the bottom of the bucket and that seemed to help some. Just curious if anyone else has any solutions to the problem. Thanks guys and stay safe out there!
    Found same problem with our rear mount aerial. Did same thing...disconnected some of the light bar.

    Same idea as we have. Thank you!

    We have rearmount platforms as well. I just pretend I'm a big time garbage truck driver hauling a 6 yard dumpster around town.

    Perhaps lights mounted more under the windshield will help your glare problem.

    I agree, I like driving the midmount better! Unfortunatley, I wasn't on the truck committee and this was a demo truck that they just couldn't pass up. There are still plenty of warning lights off the front of the truck. In all honesty, we were the only ones to see these particular ones!
