Offroading lights

I am looking for some help in choosing some light to go on top of my jeep for offroading. I am down to two different ones. Kevinsoffroad bar with 4 6" 130w lights or a 42" 240w 14400lm 80 leds flood/spot combo led light bar from eBay. Both are around the same price. Thanks for your fed back.

You're actually considering something other than the led light bar?!

that light bar has a cb antenna mount so if he wants a cb radio eventually he's got a good mounting spot.

That's what I did. There's a decent pocket along the side of the Windshield to run wires. I ran the ground to the rear hatch window iirc.

There is something about LED lighting that I personally really dont like. Even though some of those lamps and bars are incredibly bright they never seem to have to focus and depth of a good old halogen or HID in a well designed reflector... they always seem a bit, erm... uncontolled IMO......................so its just me then! Oh well just my 2 pence worth!

Your right. If you want a light that shines a mile down the road then I would look at something else besides LED bars. I have 2 130w KC's up front for things in the distance.

But I think that if you want to light an even area with good distance than I like the LED bars I have. They are great for wheeling and light up everything.
