Agreed, you can hide them up front and in the rear but the sides are tough to do.
Because of our unibody construction there is no frame to tuck the side bars up into. This is why you have to make some side skirts to block the light from shooting out directly to the sides. I tried some angle iron but found it does not follow the contour of the undercarriage and seeps light out from the valleys, you could caulk this but the straight bar looks like 10 lbs of crap in a 5 lbs bag and gives an uneven glo' effect. I would think sheet metal to be better but have not tried it. Johndeerboy made some skirts for his ride and made it work nicely, if you search his posts I think he had some pics?
Led'* maybe better but I'm not sure whats out there, at least with led'* the light direction is more controlable so you might be able to aim the light better?
They're very simple to wire with only 2 wires needed (hot and a ground) that you run back to a switch.
