I had to wait until tonight to see if they would glare off the hood. I could not actually drive it, but with all garage lights out and the door open, I see no problem with glare. Activating the PIAA, or the Vision X lamps, or both, does let some light illuminate the hood, but no real glare. The lights are focused sufficiently tightly to keep the patterns together until further out from the front of the car. This is the best I can test at the moment. The real field testing is some time off in the future.
I do have one flood lensed Vision X Solo, that could have had enough side light to produce glare, but it is not overhead. I put it centered between the headlights - behind the brush guard uprights. It is wired in independently to use to supplement the headlamps without activating the overhead lamps.
I also checked again for helmet clearance and vision obstruction. No problems here either. I mounted the upper lights under the top bar in order to use the bar as additional protection from impact and fabbed my brackets so the I could use existing holes and not drill into the roll cage.
Very nice cj7.They look very clean right there.Hopefully you do not get to much glare off of the hood.
