Fair enough, guys. I didn't bring it up to argue (wrong choice of words in one of my comments). I brought it up to learn. Certainly my bad if it came across abrupt.
The wrangler is amazing. I took a drive from Silverton, CO to Denver on Sunday, the best part of which was Monarch Pass which was covered with snow. I've never felt more sure footed on the road.
You're right, once I get a trip or two on the trail in the dark I'll have true appreciation for the light needed (and maybe frustration with the stock I've got). I'll likely be back on here figuring out the best way to mount and wire...
I could show you how I mounted the lights on my "bumper" (easy do do if you have basic metal working tools), but by far the easiest way to do it it via a windshield mount. No drilling, no cutting (if you use the KC harness system), just plug in and play.
Just be sure you get "long range" or "pencil" beam lights for there. Thats why I moved my driving lights from the windshield to my bumper. Great amount of light being generated, but the beam pattern was just too wide (beam would dissipate at about 300ft).
You know what, here (yes, more pictures
Here is a shot before I moved my 130w KC driving lights from my windshield to my bumper. The yellow sign in the center of the screen (a road ends sign) is about a 1/4 mile away. (the two bright spots in front of the jeep are my hellas, ignore them)
This is a shot of my 150w long range lights put in their place. The line of brush is about a 1/4 mile away, and the tree line beyond it (clearly illuminated to the eye) is 3/4 of a mile away. (again, the two bright spots in front are my hellas)
Put them all together, and you get this. A day-like flood of light covering the road from directly in front of the vehicle, out to a 1/2 mile, with some light being reflected back from trees at even farther away.
Seeing pictures of light on pavement is deceptive. The pavement reflects better than dirt or trees, so when photographed everything other than the road looks dim. But trust me, in that last pic, everything was lit up like day.
