Thing is I've been looking to source 5/16" HDPE and can't find it anywhere in small quantities, Gany I would start with that if I could get some.

Tony is the only one that has ridden it with the dual 8's, they're bolted straight to the 2x 3/8" plates and appear so far to handle it very well, also needs more testing, but these setups are pretty promising.



What the duct tape on the tank?
They dual 8's worked real well on the frame mount. I jumped right into a deep soft sand wash with cold muscles and cold suspension, still I couldnt feel the weight of the lights at all. I also had the Onx mounted to the bottom of the 8's so it was a pretty heavy (and ridiculously bright) setup.
