My only question was, where do you live that you need $800 lights. I wasn't disagreeing with him buying them. I'd leave that to my wife if I were thinking about it. . This is nothing to do with money and how much I or him or you for that matter can afford for them. It's a simple freaking question. I didn't give a rats a$$ for anything thing else. I have plenty more than $800 to spend on toys for the Jeep. I was just wondering about where he lived (environment), to utilize lights with that sort of price tag. Thats All.
You guys take all this stuff way to serious..... really

So, where do you live that you "need" a Sahara Unlimited? I assume you got it because that's the one you wanted. What's the difference where he lives or if he "needs" the lights? Those are the ones he likes, and he can afford to pay the $800. Like you stated earlier, this is a place to share and learn, but he was trying to "learn" and you didn't "share" anything to help him "learn."
Oh, and I'm very happy and impressed that you have way more than $800.

Quit trying to justify how others spend their money. All this negative **** is killing this forum.

I've got better things to do than to keep this up. My 6 year old grand daughter wears me out less than this thread has.
So, can I ask one more question, maybe two.
If you lived in the city where there are many bright street lights, would the stock JK lights really be that bad?
If you lived in the dark side of the deepest of country life, the JK lights would most likely not get the job done.
So, my question is and remains. "where do you live that would require the use of $800 (omit price), the best lights you can buy for the JK?
Was this really that hard of a question? Did it really have to cause all this BS?

Probably not, but the OP was simply asking where others have purchased the headlights. I'm out.

So.... from now on we can keep these threads very short. Just answer the question asked. Do not stray or ask any other unrelated questions. Period. I'm out as well.

I live in Ohio so I mainly got my wrangler to deal with the snow. I drive about an hour, one way to work, three days a week and it's all highway that is very well lit. About 45 minutes of the drive is by a couple cities that have very bright street lights. The other two days I drive about 5 miles thru town that is also well lit.
I bought the 8700's because 1) I like things that not everyone has, and 2) I like the look of the "white" light instead of the yellow glow of the halogens. Also, I recently mounted the Rigid 50' LED light bar. I don't do any offroading where I'd "need" all that light, but i like the way my ride looks with all that on it. I sometimes go to car shows and like having things that I don't see at every stop for gas. I'm sure a lot of people just add stuff cuz they like the way it looks.

I live in Ohio and my daily travels I spend a lot of time driving when its dark really early and at night. We have tons and tons of deer in and around where I live and anything that helps me see them faster and better is a good thing for me. Just today in Ohio a 29 year old man was killed when he hit a buck and it sent the deer flying into the windshield killing him and the deer. I don't really care how much the lights cost but I feel anything is better than what came with my JK. Thanks for all the feed back I'll be ordering mine from Discount Fleet Supply for a very good price of $715 & free shipping.

May be I'm kinda late on this discussion, but why not just buy a nice 20-40 inch RIGID LED bar and you'll be set for all the highway driving you need?

Seems like its all that highway deer and such that scares ya...

my 50inch RIGID is irreplaceable and price is very justifiable (also I didnt pay retail)... I wouldnt trade it for nothing less thatn a SR-version 50" maybe...

Good luck... and hope you make the right choice...
$800 or $1 - its still an earned dollar that we spend...

I hope you're not suggesting running a 20-40" LED light bar on the highway...because that's the most ignorant advice one could possible give...

I forget are those the second gen? Where did you get them
