4×4 Australia Review Night Hawk VLI Lights



The Night Hawk VLI 9” Lights got the 4×4 community talking. Countless independent reviews, Comparison Light test winner, against the 10 top brands locally. The VLI performance was unmatchable and packed full of features not seen in one single light before. 0-100% Brightness Control, inter-changeable spot/flood covers, Active Temperature Control and cooling ducts to name a few.

Hot on the heels of the 9” Driving Lights, we upgraded and re-launched our Night Hawk Single Row Light Bar range to incorporate the VLI Technology, seeing an 82% increase in effective lumens on average across the range, and up to 963m @ 1 Lux on the 51” Bar. The extensive range of 10 Sizes, from 5.5″ to 51″, starts from just $115.00 rrp.

Recently 4×4 Australia magazine added the 9″ Driving Lights to their Ford Ranger build, they wanted the best and they also wanted to put them through their paces in a real 4×4 environment. Taking them to the Simpson Desert and the Flinders Ranges just a couple of locations to mention. Hear what editor Matt Raudonikis thinks of the lights by watching this clip below;

Simpler wiring, easier installation, more user control and greater reliability over the traditional plug and play wiring loom. Up to 4 x Bushranger Night Hawk VLI Series LED lights can be controlled by one wiring system and any combination of models/sizes can be used.


In the coming months, we will add another member to the family, offering a lightweight, compact 7” Driving Light in the VLI family. Perfectly suited to nudge bars and many other installations where size and weight need to be kept to a minimum.
