    The bezel bolt is a torx M3x.5x12mm button head. The mounting bolt is an M4 x 25mm flat head socket cap.

    That would be 16 of our S1 lights, not a light bar. :) Here's a data sheet with all of the specifications. https://www.bajadesigns.com/images/S1 Data Sheet.pdf

    Does anyone have recommendations for security bolts? For both the lateral bolts and also the larger bolt that holds the light mount to the ditch light bracket itself. I just got a set of XL's as ditch lights and am concerned about security.

    Posted in the lighting forum as well but I think it deserves to be here as well. S1s on flexible arms so you can illuminate the bed, the trailer, the campsite, and while changing tires: BD makes awesome stuff!

    I saw that you guys just released a new work/scene S2 with different reflector lens.

    Is this lens different from the previous work/scene that has the different internal reflector cone?

    Hi guys, just saw this thread AFTER ordering my lights, grrr! Am I reading on here that you’ve got Tundra plug and play options for your lights?!? If so, can I get any plug and play parts for the two pair I just ordered: Squadron Sport #557801 and Squadron SAE Amber #257815

    Not sure what plug the sport uses but the SAE fogs use a way connector. They do offer a plug and play adapter but make it difficult to purchase. I just made my own from Amazon parts. See post # 1185 above for the amazon links.

    I have a pair of S2 pros in my back bumper with the wide cornering but wanted to see how the new work/scene lens performed. Prior to buying the S2s I did a lot of research regarding which set to buy in order to give me the most light possible when backing up in dark driveways or working on my trailer at night and ended up ordering thr wide cornering version. However, the new S2 scene lens caught my eye so I ordered a set on BDs website and they arrived today.

    I decided to do a write up and comparison of the two. My conclusion is that they are both good for lighting up the area behind my truck but I think I prefer the wide cornering only because the light is directed where it’s needed and not 50’ high into the trees- besides our rear view camera can’t pick up that light anyway:). The new work/scene is exactly that: a work light mainly for spreading short range light in a very broad area. This lens is very good for mounting up high and illuminating say, a campsite. This comes as no surprise as BD advertises this!

    Youll also notice that the stock reverse lights actually do a decent job of lighting up the rear and when I do turn on my S2s it washes out the periphery but you can see very clearly what the light is shining on.

    it’s worth noting that these pics are taken with one light at a time as I had a different lens on each light

    Anyway, here are my shots with an iPhone and aren’t professional but do show some of the differences:

    Notice the work/scene illuminating the trees in the picture above C6903770-6052-4360-9ED3-80142AA6CB78.jpg

    great write up. I wonder if the work lens is different from the previous work lights that have a different shape inner reflector cone.

    Is the work lens primarily for those who don’t have the inner work lens cone?

    Any updates on when light-bars will start shipping that have been backorders for a few months due to 2020? Say, a 30 inch amber one maybe?

    Same here. I understand global supply chains are all in chaos due to Covid and work place restrictions etc. I was just curious. I can live on without a 30 inch light bar a few more days. Hahaha

    Question for you Baja users out there. Got a friend looking for some advice on lights. He is looking to do either a light bar or a pair of cs9 on his front bumper. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey guys, sorry for the delays. We do indeed have a long backorder for select products right now. If they told you 5 weeks, then it will likely be close to that time frame. It is a bummer for us too, but we are doing our best to get orders out quickly.

    If you shoot me a PM with your name, order number, and what products you ordered, I will check with the orders team and try to get you an update early next week.
