One of the things that people tell us when they manage to escape from the city and head off to the outback, is how dark it gets at night. Like it’s so black that you literally can’t see what’s in front of you…
This can present massive challenges for Overlanders, Adventurers and 4 Wheel Drive enthusiasts when travelling at night. Being able to see at night is critical when you are driving a heavy loaded vehicle traveling along a highway or up a dirt track.
You need to have short and long distance field of vision in order to spot wildlife or be able to see when the next corner is coming up. The earlier you know the sooner you can respond, and in the outback and the bush that means safety, FAMILY safety.
This is where knowledge about lighting comes into play. Having a mix of Spot, Fog, Driving and Flood beams is essential to maximising your field of vision.
Then there’s what type of lights to use;
There’s also the style of lights to consider, like round, bar or integrated. So as you can see, there’s a fair bit involved in order to get the lighting correct for your Ram 1500 or 2500, Chevrolet Silverado and Ford F Truck. The good news is that CTO Industries has been there and done that, touring across the USA and Australia in the capacity of Race Chase Vehicle and Overlanding.
