    Would Hella 4000s fit inside the hoop? I seem to recall Christo mentioning the possibility of increasing the size of the hoop. Any word on that?

    I seem to remember Beo saying that it looked like they would.
    He's outta town for a few days, I don't know if he will be checking in. You might pop back to SOR. I think he posted some measurments there.

    Regards...Dan

    From -B- on SOR forum:
    The 4000s are 9 3/16 x 8 3/16. So unfortunately the answer is no, the 4000s will not fit on the Slee bumper. :( Which brings up my other question, will the hoop be larger in the future?

    The hoop is as big as it can be without getting in front of the lights. ALso when measuring lights, it is difficult to just from the width, since the body is tapered to the back. Not having a set of 4000's to try, I can not say if they will or not.

    I will be swapping the bumper on my Yellow truck tomorrow for one with a hoop and will report if the big IPF fit or not.
