Update:
Two weekends ago I got out and aimed the lights. The floods on the outside and the spots in the middle. I used my BLM shooting range and set up to zero the lights in at 100 yards lol. The burm in the photos is where I usually put my targets but for this trip the burm was the target.

I was very happy with the lighting but when I originally reinstalled the roof rack I moved it forward because I thought it looked better.

Well needless to say the advice I was given was correct, with the roof rack so far forward I had a ton of light splash. It was hitting my mirrors, hood, and windshield. It was certainly not going to work.

So today I moved the roof rack further back and I went out to compare tonight. With the rack shifted back now I only have a little bit of light splash on the front of the hood. It is 90% better and not bothersome for my eyes.

I am going to call it good at this point.

Roof rack forward with way to much light splash:

Roof rack shifted back:

And some for fun:

These two were before I moved the rack back, you can see all the light hitting the hood.
