Light Location Question

New guy here and need some guidance, please.

Putting aux. lights on my JKUR.

I have 2 cornering lights 2 driving lights and one spot.

I was thinking put the driving lights on bumper as well as well as the spot and place the cornering lights on A pillar.

So i called Baja Design and got 2 different answers.

One guy says cornering lights low and driving on A pillar to increase "throw " of lights.

Other guy says cornering on A pillar angled out and driving on winch mount.

He says driving up high will give me glare off hood (Anvil silver is color).

Still lost on this I called my local 4x4 shop and they recommend all lights on winch mount.

I suppose another option is driving and cornering on winch mount and spot on A pillar.

Of course I could keep trying combinations but I'm wondering is there a correct position for these lights?

Thanks

Re: Light Location Question

I agree with the hood or windshield glare. Can you mock them up temporary with clamps and see which location functions best? How does the light kit mount to the A-pillar?
