Off Road Lights
 
Calling all Off-Roaders! I'm trying to get a discussion here about off road lights. I used to have some 6" ones on my Wrangler and they were great, but times and Jeeps "are a changing". I started another thread about LED lights, and although they look awesome, they are way too freaking expensive. I ultimately would like to put a set of "X" amount of lights on top of my WK. I personally have some ideas, but wanted to poll the crowd, get some pictures and experiences with different types of lights, sizes and where there mounted. Anyone care to discuss? Thanks!!

I'll kick it off:

I was thinking about some type of light bar that can attach to our factory roof rails - maybe with 4 or 5 (6") lights on top. The wiring will be another issue. I'm trying to research HID vs regular bulb, size of light etc....my goal is to see almost all angles and FAR. Let the ideas and experiences flow...

I have this light bar. It was custom made by a member on here, I mounted three 7" HID lights on it, it was awesome. The bar needs to be repowdercoated then i'm gonna post it for sale on here, it mounts through the tow hook holes retaining the tow hooks.

I saw yours and they looked great! How do you like the light output - far? I'm thinking of something on the top, cuz i go through brush and I need my light to be up higher. About how much were those lights running?

They were great! It turned night into day! But I also have HID's in my lows, highs, and fogs
So 9 HIDs in total.

Do you have any pics of them at night, with comparison pics - lights vs lows...fogs etc? I would love to see these in action!

Damn that bar and lights looks great!!

I have PIAA 520 ATP,s and I love them. Sleek, clean and bright. I've got HID lows and fogs as well, so night turns into day when I need it! :)

I went w the PIAAs for both price, and size. They fit perfectly, are bright as hell, and were not bad on the wallet. :thumbsup:

I don't sorry, I'm lazy. And I sold my lights to my friend. He has 6 of those mounted to his lifted 2500!

How about something like this, all we would have to do is open up the headlight housing and slapping these in.
