Default Off-Roading Lights

I have fitted the following auxilliary lights in my Bolero 4wd

1. A pair of Hella Rallye 3003 and a pair of Hella work lamps at front
2. Single Hella Work lamp at the rear.

Rallye 3003 comes with 55 watts H1 bulbs. I have converted that to 100 watts H1 Osram bulbs. The lights are excellent. Rallye 3003 gives a very good beam pattern and works as my long range lamp. Hella work lamp is focused side ways to work as cornering light and for close range illumination, it is very useful in offroad situation.

The rear Hella work lamp is my camping light.

hi khalil khan,
if you are not placing any winch or aux lights on front bumper, then fitting the projectors on that location is ok. but check for beam spread in low beam, as skoda projectors are only low beam projectors. (the front bumper may hinder the low beam spread, due to location you planned)
Best Regards.

thank you shekharan , no i dont plan for a winch as of now, or any lights on the bumper, feel theyd crack up the easiest . the spread is pretty good on a friends gypsy, he has them placed on the front bumper. and guess they can act as a decent short distance light. and i guess they may be more visible in fog as compared to fog lamps. am not sure though

hi prakashutosh,
since the bumper design of the fortuner and the Scorpio is not similar so I think the lights would be difficult to mount in a similar fashion.I would suggest u install the front guard of the Scorpio Getaway minus the round pipe on the top.It serves the purpose very well and looks nice too.BTW it is a very strong mount for any kind of lights,this i am telling you from personal experience as had previously installed HELLA rallye 4000 HID lamps on my (now sold) Scorpio.Mind you the hella lights weigh a ton.

Hi would you have a visual reference of the front guard for the getaway that you are talking about. Also would you know of a place I can get it in Delhi. I am doing the rounds of Karol Bagh next weekend and hope to end the lights and front guard saga. Thank you once again for your help.

Their power, reach, beam convergence and view clarity is just awesome, even in the face of oncoming lights.
I had gone to a garage I know to select auxiliary headlights. I was going to choose the Rallye 3000 when I saw Rallye 3003 in the catalogue. From the isolux diagram, I saw that the throw (reach) of the 3003 was longer. Since my requirement was max throw in the highways, I requested them to keep a pair ready for fitment tomorrow. 3003 was Rs. 600 cheaper than the 3000.

Can someone offer any explanation on differences between Rallye 3000 and 3003?

Rallye 3003 light throw is a little longer than the older 3000's. The Rallye 3003 are the new series from Hella, replacing the Rallye 3000s. Diameter of the Spotlights is 222mm and they also take a sidelight so it can be used as 12v or 24v depending on which bulbs you put in.

Specs

Voltage : 12V,24V
Height : 253 mm
Width : 126 mm
Diameter : 222 mm

The only difference I can see is that the 3000's never had the parking lights and the 3003 has one. Aesthetically almost the same except for the grey ring around the dome.

The claims about the 3000's, to each his own .

Hi Sammyaulakh, can you post more pictures of the mounting brackets for those Lightforce aux.lights on your Fortuner? I've just bought a pair of Hella 4000 (Metal ones) for my Innova, but am yet to find a good installer. I do not want to drill holes in the Bumpers, and the lights should not vibrate. The Unibar brackets would be good, but I think they would vibrate once the Hella 4000's are fitted.
