All that with a waterproof poti of course :)

Keep in mind that to dim an LED you need a PWM Dimmer (Pulse Width Modulator), not a regular potentiometer.

Additionally it's nice to have the high beam bypass so that you can run the LED dimmed with the low beam, but they go to 100% power when the high beam is turned on.

Baja Designs, Skene Designs, and ADVMonster all make a PWM dimmer w/ High beam by pass. I have used all three and find the ADVM one to be the simplest.
