LED Light bars or LED Headlights

Debating if i want to go JW speaker Headlights and Fog lights or Keep stock headlights and get a 50 inch bar a 20 inch bar and 4 square LED Spot/Flood lights, was wondering what others did.

I do not want to do both its just to much cash to do both at this point,i priced it out and everything regardless of which way i got is about 200$ difference in price - i was leaning more towards the bars and square for the main reason i get more lights and more fun with same money, but then i look at the con part of how many times will i actually use them, where as the headlights ill be using every day.

So..... What did u guys do and if you have pictures of your JK with some of the LED bars and sauces please post pictures i would love to see them!!

-Side question anyone in NJ know of any laws where i can't use say my 20inch bar as a normal headlight only on the road (would be attached to bumper, so it would be in same place as my headlights give or take a few inches lower)

I just put JW speaker headlights and fog lights in 2 days ago. I debated same as you, upgrade auxiliary lighting first vs headlights first. Now I'm really glad I went this way.

One thing to consider is that with the new headlights and fog lights you will have a safer day to day rig and also wil actually reduce the need to upgrade auxiliary lighting. The fogs and low beams are bright enough that I can't outrun them at 70mph. I can get about 4 seconds until I'm on top of something, which used to be 2-3 seconds with factory lights same conditions. I haven't even needed the high beams yet but I bet they will be all I'll need for normal trails.

Both! I'm running the JW Speakers and love em, but that light bar definitely helps in low visibility situations.

If you get good enough headlights you won't need a led light bar. I put these on the jeep just before Christmas and I won't need my led light bar with these on.
