Mounting Bracket Width of MaxxTow MT80637-2 Off Road Lamp

Question:

Howdy! Looking to upgrade the external Floods on my Platinum Horsetrailer, currently equipped with Peterson MFG #507s on your website as well. I’m looking for an LED upgrade that can use the original #507 bases, and was curious if the width of the base of these would support that? Any reccs on an LED upgrade that would allow use of the 507 base would be great! Can’t remove the bases from trailer. Thanks and Cheers! -

The existing base bracketry on your Peterson # 507-12 is 1-7/8 inch wide, while that of the MaxxTow # MT80637-2 is 1-1/8 inches. Since the old bracket is wider, you can reuse it, you'll just need to devise a way to shim out the base of the new lamp, such as using some stacked washers to take up the space differential. I've provided a photo showing the dimensions side by side. The photos aren't quite to scale, so it appears that the bracket of the MaxxTow lamp is wider than the Peterson, but that's not the case.

I've linked to a product description video featuring the MaxxTow # MT80637-2.
