Check out the ACI Off-Road LED Lights lineup

These are the new ACI Off-Road LED Lights from Agri-Cover, Inc. If you need more light for nighttime work or travel off the beaten path, these lights are the solution.

All our LED lights are super-bright, are waterproof and feature aluminum housings and stainless-steel mounting brackets. They can be mounted on all sorts of vehicles, including ATVs, trucks, Jeeps, skid-steers and tractors.

LEDs are great for putting more light around a work or off-road vehicle for several reasons. They are more efficient than other lights, using a fraction of the power needed by incandescent lights. LEDs are also far more shock-resistant because they don’t use the fragile materials used in other lighting systems. Also, they last for a very long time, so you don’t have to worry about a bulb fizzling out when you’re a long way from home.

Before I start going into detail about these lights, there are a few terms  you’ll need to know:

Lumen: This gives you an objective number for just how much light something produces so you can compare it to other products.  For comparison, a 60-watt incandescent bulb puts out roughly 800 lumens of light, while your average basic car headlight puts out about 1,200 lumens.

Heatsink: LEDs do not like heat. That’s why any high-powered LED system will have metal fins and ridges on the back to pull the waste heat out of the LEDs and release it to the air.

Spot and Flood beams: These terms describe the shape of the beam formed by a light. A spot beam will focus the light tightly into a narrow shape for lighting things farther away, while a flood beam spreads the light out into a wide shape to light an area closer to you.

Now, let’s look at these lights.

 18-watt LED Lights

These lights have six 3-watt LEDs in a single row. They produce 1,200 lumens per light. You can get them with a 90-degree flood beam or a 25-degree spot beam.

The narrow shape makes it easy to install these lights in tight spaces. See how well they fit the front of this ATV, for example:

We put a pair of the 18-watt lights on this Polaris Ace and went for a drive. Take a look and see how much of a difference there is between the stock headlights and when we turn on the LEDs:

 

24-watt LED Lights

These lights have eight 3-watt LEDS arranged in a circle. They produce 1,600 lumens per light. You can get them with a 60-degree flood beam or a 30-degree spot beam.

These LED lights work great for lighting the way ahead, or for doing work around your vehicle. Here are a set of them mounted in a truck’s headache rack, pointed backward, to light up the area behind the truck for working after dark.

 

42-watt LED Lights

These lights are slightly larger than the 24-watt lights, and you’ll notice they have an even thicker heatsink. These lights have 14 3-watt LEDs in a circle and produce 2,800 lumens per light. They come with either a 60-degree flood beam or an 8-degree spot beam.

These lights are considerably more powerful than your average vehicle’s headlights, and a set of them would easily light the way for a trail ride. Check out how well they fit on this Jeep’s bumper.

 

90-watt LED Lights

These lights feature nine 10-watt LEDs in a 3×3 grid, and they produce 8,100 lumens per light.

Let’s put that number in perspective:  If you put two of these lights on your vehicle, they’ll draw as much power as three 60-watt bulbs, but they’ll put out more light than if you had twenty 60-watt bulbs.

You can order these lights with a 90-degree flood beam or a 10-degree spot beam. You’ll also notice they have huge heatsinks, and the mounting brackets have built-in rubber shock absorbers to handle rough travel.

These lights perform well when you need to get work done at night. They come in really handy on skid-steers and on agricultural equipment.

Here are the 90-watt lights on a skid-steer, for example.

And here is the view from the cab of an agricultural sprayer that has the 90-watt lights pointed at the ground and the boom.

Can I install a tonneau cover on a Ram truck with the RamBox package?

Ram Trucks has offered its RamBox Cargo Management System with its trucks since the 2009 model year. This package turns the area over the wheelwells into locking storage for smaller items. The system also adds a cargo rail system and bed divider to the main portion of the bed.

Many truck buyers will want to add a tonneau cover to protect larger pieces of cargo in the main bed, and there’s no reason they can’t have it.

We make versions of the ACCESS® Original, LITERIDER, LORADO and LIMITED Roll-Up Covers for RamBox beds (both 5’7” and 6’4” beds). Because of the cargo rail system, installing one of these covers on a RamBox-equipped Ram truck requires some special steps. This is why we have special instructions for these trucks. You’ll want to use these instructions in conjunction with the owner’s manual to your cover (All our owner’s manuals and special instructions are available for download on this page).

As you can see in this video, the installation isn’t too complicated.

You just remove the cargo rails and replace the bolts with longer ones that also add clamps and nylon spacers in certain locations. You can see each step in detail in this video.

The cover in this particular video is our ACCESS® Limited Roll-Up Cover, but the steps work for any cover made for trucks with the RamBox system.

There are many other truck bed accessories you can add to a truck with the RamBox system. For example, this truck was also outfitted with our ACCESS™ Truck Bed Mat. It also has our ACCESS™ AA Battery LED Light, which comes included for free with the Limited Roll-Up Cover.
