new xj owner! opinions and suggestions needed!

hey guys, I just bought my first jeep, '96 cherokee, 2 door, 5 speed! this is my second vehicle, I just sold my '92 f150 flareside. it came with yellow lights on the bumper and I want to add two clear, regular lights in between them. I'm just stuck between round or a similar rectangle. just want to hear some suggestions! thanks!

When it comes to lighting, always keep DanielSternLighting.com in mind. Amazing reference materials, and sells great products.

That said, you're really just asking an aesthetic question since round vs rectangular is just cosmetic and are independent of quality. I personally like rectangular for XJs since the whole vehicle including all of its other lights are rectangles. Rectangles everywhere! Round fogs just look out of place especially if mounted between your two rectangular ones.

Exactly how blind ARE you? (j/k)
Also, you can legally only have so many lights on at one time (unless your local LEOs just don't care...)
PS: X2 on rectangle for bumper mounted lights. Rounds are OK for roof mount though
PPS: Looks like your driver side headlight needs to be aligned.
