These are really great fixtures even if you only buy a couple. I have one in my garage over my workbench. When I was an electrician we installed hundreds of those and they are top notch.

well, I got the other 8' light up today
it's hard wired with the other big lights (the old 4' it replaced was a plug-in)
I didn't get electrocuted or burn the house down
it took me half the day, because I had to do more cleaning to get the ladder where I needed
but now it .........
