4-inch Wide-Cornering HID Light
4-Inch Fuego HID
stock Rhino headlights light up about 30 feet in front of the vehicle and are
good for about 15 mph on night runs. Pretty pathetic. For our Rhino
Buildup, we knew that the stock lights weren't going to cut it if we
planned to ride at night. Having used HID lights in the past, they seemed like
a natural fit for the Rhino's less than thrilling low output stator. After
startup, HID don't draw a much power as halogen lights, and put out much more
light. They only issue that we did not like about typical HID setups is the
lights tend to focus in on a circle way out in the distance. Driving style
HIDs help, but still left dark areas in our field of vision.
heard about a solution from Baja Designs. They recently added a new
wide-cornering lens to their Fuego 4-inch
Similar to a “fog” light the wide-cornering lens is advertised to
provide a smooth,
evenly distributed beam that allows you to virtually see around corners. They
sounded like the perfect match, so we decided that we'd give them a shot.
We had our four 4-inch Fuego HIDs mounted in a light rack

The 4-inch wide-cornering lights perform as advertised. As you can see,
they really fill in
the dark spots in front and to the sides of the vehicle. The
wide-cornering lights are a perfect compliment to spot or driving lights. The
lights also look great, have an internal ballast, and are easy to adjust
cannot wait to try them out in the dunes.
