IPF's or Cibies? Which is the best?

I want to upgrade the sorry ass lights on my 2010 Wrangler but am torn between Cibies or IPF's. Anyone have any comparisons or suggestions?

I've got the Cibies and I can tell you they were worth every penny. Everyone who sees my JK with the headlights on asks me about them; they are that bright. Don't know anyone with the IPFs installed so can't help there but I can tell you the Deltas are not even close to the Cibies. Hope that helps some

Did you use normal wattage light bulbs or did you go with the high powered ones and upgrade the wiring?

I went with the 70/65W Osram bulbs and built my own wiring harness with a good quality 12 ga wire. They now have a plug and play wiring harness that saves you all that work that sells for $89 if I'm not mistaken

Here:

and get the wiring harness here:

Or just get their plug-n-play kit that uses Hella reflectors. I hear that Cibie is better than the Hella but only marginally:

non issue for me so far.....but there are several other threads about it. Based on what I read....I need to get some back up bulbs. Length of life is all over the map. I am certain that weather conditions are playing a big factor in this calculation. Hot/Cold/Moisture/Freezing....etc..
