    Can anyone tell me if you can adjust / move the range of travel of the headlights? W/ the lights @ the max upper position I still am limited on how far I can see / out run the lights.
    Thanks.

    I don't believe you can, as the motor is connected to the light...there may be a manual adjustment for it...but I'm not sure.

    There is a manual adjustment behind the adjuster motor. Turn it CCW to raise, and CW to lower. That said, you probably won't get a whole lot of additional height out of it. The manual adjustments are really just to fine-tune the lights so they are at the same height.

    There are two screws behind each headlight. One is for the side-to-side adjustment and the other is for the up-and-down adjustment. When I got the OME kit, the headlights were aiming too high. I had to adjust them down. There's actually quite a bit of room for adjustment.

    One tip: the right side adjuster is easy to get to. The left side, not so easy. If I were to do it again, I would probably take the battery out.

    I did see a hex head behind each headlight w/ a shaft that has a disc w/ detents that I was guessing could be used to adjust & as you mentioned. Thanks for the direction of rotation info' as well. Hope to raise them some & equal them out as well for the passenger side is lower than the drivers side but w/ out damaging anything

    I will look again for the screws you mentioned & that is what I was looking originally to adjust as I have any other vehicle I have had but the motor adjustment is a new one to me. Thanks
