I have 4 driving lights on my light bar. I point the passenger side on the ground about 20 yards in front of and 5 yards to the right of the jeep. This lights up the right side of the trail so I can see branches and trees. The 2 center lights are aimed dead ahead and slighting down so they land on the ground about 50 yards out in front.
The driver side light is point real close to my front fender, about 10 feet out in a diagonal. This is my favorite position; all those jack***s that keep their high beams on coming at you down the road. Well wait till they are about to pass you and hit the light bar switch. That driver side light is pointed directly at their heads if I time it right.

I find pointing them straight ahead like headlights is ineffective. When your on the trail you dont need to light up 100 yards down the road. You need the light focused around you. So you can see the terrain. So point them where the headlights cant reach.

I have drawn you a picture:


Signatures are for attention whores.


Oh the irony.

Lando's setup looks pretty effective for a trail rig. How will you be using the lights? Find a dark empty street and go aim them to where you like. Just don't be like the **** I had behind me today...some ****** in a straight piped exploder with blacked out windows riding down the road at 4 PM with all 4 roofrack lights on. I wanted to "accidentally" toss a hand full of change out of the sun-roof.

yea it all depends on how the lights will be used. i would aim 2 of them in line with the headlights and the other 2 high and a bit left/right.
