Need your oppinion on these lights

I mounted these yesterday and I'm not sure if I should move the two smaller lights to the front bumper or not (in place of the amber fog lights). Do they look good where they are? I was also thinking about turning the two smaller lights out a bit to get more of the side of the road/trail if I leave them on the rack.

I think I'll just move the black lights to the front bumper. I really dont like the look of them up on the rack...

if you do that, move the 2 lights up on the bar into the outer holes so they are further apart. looks better and better visibility.

You drive a 2wd jeep.

btw, on the tint, usually using windex, or anything with amonia in it, on the inside of the glass, is what turns it purple, I'm assuming that's what was reffered to. just FYI

I personally like the look how you posted them. If you put em on the bumper, will you try and keep the orange ones? Are they like fogs/foul whether, or just running lights? Huge running lights, but seem too orange for fog.

The chrome lights might look better on the bumper, matching the grill and all. Then again the black lights will match the bumper. Do what you like, you have to look at it everyday, not us.

On the bumper there less potential for glare, especially of the hood or something, just a thought.

Yeah Im going to move the middle lights out to the sides for better visibility. As for the amber fog lights no, they aren't very useful. I am going to put the 5.25" lights that were on the rack on the bumper and get rid of the rectangular amber fog lights. They were useful when I lived in Oregon and had them on my '67 Cougar though, even if they did look bad Same set of lights but I had them spare when I got a new bumper for the Cougar so I stuck them on the Jeep. They are too weak though and we rarely get enough fog to worry about up here in the Sierra Foothills.




ETA: Thought I'd throw this pic up of the Jeep and Cougar. You can see my dog Lance in the back of the Jeep. One of my favorite pics.

Thanks I got the car for $600 and took a 351 windsor out of a 69 cougar that my dad had and rebuilt it. Did all the body work and engine and drivetrain. Now I just have to do the interior and paint it.

I got the lights on the XJ mounted in their "semi-permanent" locations today. I really like the new look! I'll finish up the wiring tomorrow and tell you all if the lights were worth the 160 bucks total. I know thats not much, like a drop in a bucket, in comparison to high end lighting but it still better be worth it! lol
