Our Stedi Type X
Over the years we have seen many spot lights on 4×4 and trucks. To date the Stedi Type X have been our favorite. Every year we work with the pre and post services for the tourers heading to cape york. This year our customer Troy with his 200 series has headed to the cape twice with his Stedi Type X. On both trips the Stedi have been the only lights to leave in the same conditions apart from losing a cover. While the other vehicles came back with broken mounts and lights missing the Stedi Type X have stood the test of the trips and all of the inbetween trips. So much so that we have put a set on our own Ford Ranger and we are loving the difference.
STEDI TYPE X 8.5 INCH LED DRIVING LIGHTS
Straight out of the box you will receive all of the required mounting hardware included all nuts & bolts, washers, side clips, anti-vibration dampeners, and the u-bracket.
First up is the nuts that will slot into the back of the housing, you will notice there are 2 slots either side of light. The inner side will fit the larger nut and outer fits the smaller nut with the top side of the nut facing towards the centre of the light. Lastly, for this step, attach the clips over each side to secure the nuts in place when adding the bolts.
Next up are the side bolts, these only need to be moderately tight at this stage as you will need to adjust the tilt angle when you move on to the install on to your vehicle. Now for the question that everyone asks, “what are the rubber plates for?”. These are supplied to absorb vibration whilst driving that if not controlled, can shorten the life span of your lights. For customers using only one mounting bolt, we recommend the dampener plates being used as a must. With only a single point of mounting the lights are much more susceptible to vibration. To install the dampeners place one on the top and one on the bottom of the u-bracket with the rubber side facing in towards the bracket as per the third picture below.

Since its release, we have had an overwhelming amount of requests for specialty covers that perform more to specific characteristics of the driving conditions you may be facing. We also offer our very popular Smiley Cover compatible with our 8.5-inch models as well as replacement STEDI and Clear covers that came with the Type X itself.
AMBER: Excellent for off-road & beach driving, helps in cutting through dust and haze. Coloured filters also reduce the intensity of the light, which is advantages in dense scrub.
BLUE: Helps to reduce glare. Also useful for marine applications to reduce glare from the water. Useful when driving in snow.
GREEN: Greenlight offers a better definition of outlines. The human eye is most sensitive to green light, it’s the brightest of all the colours but this also makes it easier for others to see you. Green is invisible to wild animals. Greenlight also does not attract insects like white or yellow light does.
WICKED SMILEY: Significantly increases street credibility.
