Im shopping around for some off road lights. i plan on mounting the first set up on each side of the window cowl. Im looking for something that will light up down range. Ill probably add another set later on the bumper with more of a fog pattern or just replace the factory fogs with something more powerful. How bout some input and pics. Thanks

I like my Lightforce lights. They have optional filters for driving in rain, snow and also have spot and flood filters. + the lenses are made of lexan so there's no worry about rocks being kicked up from other cars breaking your nice new expensive lights.

I'm running two 6" KC slimlights 100w driving lens on the lower windshield mount and they're OK. I'm probably going to switch out with two KC slimlights 130w pencil beam and then move the driving pattern lights in front of the grill.

If money's no object and your looking for max. brightness, then check out the 42" Xmitter..

They don't draw many amps and can be run off the factory switch.


They are solid and VERY powerful lights.:D

I have the Striker 170's on my bumper then when funds allow I will get the Lance 140's to mount on the windshield.

I'm running 100w KC's on the windshield, you can't beat the 23 year warranty, even covers the bulbs.

I too am running LightForces', (4) 140's on my front bumper. They are very nice lights and the filters are a really cool option too. I am running two clear and two yellow lenses for rain and fog and they work great! I have also been running (4) Baja Designs Fuego's in the 100w Halogen version and I am about to replace them with the HID's versions and so they should be really bright. Overall, for the money and options you can't go wrong with the LightForces' as any HID are really over prices for general offroading.

I have wanted to get some of these,I hear nothing but good things about them--- been without a wheeler for 5 years, so busy with work for everyone Else's rig:D
I do have some PIAA's with hi/low rectangle size ( I don't care for size )that run $500 I took in trade over a year ago, Still in a box:shaking: I wonder how they work:laughing:
Hella makes some nice ones too, also like the look of the hi/low bean warns at $350 a pair
