Bushranger® Night Hawk 9” VLI Series LED Driving Lights have been developed from the ground up by our team of engineers to offer a truly unique design which takes performance, looks and usability to a whole new level.
The bold, modern aesthetic incorporates clever cooling ducts which channel cool air directly over the heatsink to greatly increase the heat dissipation of the LED’s. The Advanced Temperature Control System takes advantage of the superior cooling design to run the LED’s at their maximum potential by monitoring and adjusting the output according to the environment.
These lights are so bright, we’ve also incorporated a brightness control function, which allows complete control of the light intensity in conditions where too much light can be detrimental to clear vision. The brightness is controlled by our pioneering, relay-free VLI Series Wiring System, which is the first of its kind and leads the way with simpler wiring, easier installation, more user control and greater reliability over traditional systems.
Each light is supplied with two protective covers which allow the user to change the beam pattern quickly and easily. With the spot protective cover fitted, the light projects a clean, focused spot beam pattern which reaches extreme distance; great for highway driving. Clip on the flood protective cover and the light changes significantly to a wide, flood beam pattern which illuminates all the surroundings for excellent short to medium distance vision.
Bushranger® Night Hawk lights are engineered tough to withstand the rugged outdoor terrain and harsh climate experienced down under. They are backed by a 5 year warranty and our 40+ year history of supplying quality engineered 4×4 products to the Australian market.
Recently the VLI Series lights took out the No.1 spot in 4×4 Australia Magazine’s, LED Driving Light Comparison Test. Up against the top 10 lights in the market, Bushranger Night Hawk 9” VLI Series LED Driving Lights came out on top. If you’re in the market for some new driving lights, the 16-page article is worth a read. You’ll be sure to learn a thing or two about LED lighting and get the most from your set up.

If you thought the smart electronics were already doing enough, we pushed them even further by developing the first dedicated auxiliary light wiring system to incorporate relay free switching and brightness control functionality. What does this mean? Simpler wiring, easier installation, more user control and greater reliability over the traditional plug and play wiring loom. The commonly used automotive 12V relay is removed entirely and replaced with modern transistor switching, which is built into the light and the control module. Each light is powered directly from the battery, rather than through a relay, meaning there are no power restrictions for the wiring system, which is a common limitation with traditional relay-based wiring looms. Up to 4 x Bushranger Night Hawk VLI Series LED lights can be controlled by 1 wiring system and any combination of models/sizes can be used.
The brightness control function allows the user to adjust the brightness of all lights on the system with 7 different light intensity settings giving complete control to match the driving conditions. In certain conditions, vision can be greatly enhanced by reducing the intensity of light projected, for example, dense bush tracks, hilly terrain or even some highway driving where an excess of light can lead to intense reflections and eye strain…. now you can dial these high intensity lights back to a more comfortable level. Use a second wiring system as a work/camping / reverse light setup and control the intensity of the lit area. You have complete control like never before.
Plug & Play Connectors
The wiring system uses control leads with waterproof plugs which quickly and easily join together to allow plenty of flexibility when routing from the control module to the VLI lights.
Soft Start Programming
The soft start feature programmed into the control module gradually increases the light intensity over the first second of operation to reduce eye strain and flash blindness that commonly occurs when switching into high beam mode with high intensity LED lights fitted. It also extends the life of the electronics by reducing the sudden shock load that occurs when high output LED’s change instantly from off to on.
PWM Brightness Control
The control module uses a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signal to control the brightness of all VLI series lights connected to the system. It allows the option of 7 x brightness settings which can be quickly changed at the turn of a dial to suit the conditions
- Modern, electronically switched wiring system offers a simpler, more reliable and smarter alternative to regular relay-based wiring harnesses.
