Rushmore lid spoilers with led lights?

Anyone have these? How bright are the lights. I'm on the fence with these and the wrap around that go under the lid. I know how bright the bigger ones are. But they don't look right to me. Kind of out of place. If I did get the bigger ones I'd color match the body and run smoke lenses. The spoilers look a lot better. But it's about more lights to be seen.*

Any pics would help.

More lights, go with the wraps. Style, go with the spoilers. I've had both. The wraps are much more noticeable.

Perfect example. Thanks. Seems a waste of 250 bucks for the spoilers if it's for lighting. 150 for the cool little spoilers alone isn't bad.

I'm not too crazy about the spoilers for the Rushedmore bikes. They just don't look as good.

The earlier ones were a lot cooler. Been looking at chin spoilers. Maybe I'll divert the funds that way. Not into the plasma rods.

I went with the wraps, they are much brighter in my opinion. In my mind if your adding light go for what's more likely to get seen. I only added for extra light though, I wasn't going for fancy.

Ya. My goal is to be seen. If I can do that and add fancy I figured why not.

The wrap around LED has more and larger LED lights than the lid spoiler LED lights
