lol Guilty as charged. It's got some water spots and dirt on it currently though. Does that count? I'm hoping we get at least one decent snow so I can play in that. And this spring I should finally have a chance to take it to a real offroad park. Right now, the best it's seen is 5.23 acres I own in Mclean, which is basically just dirt and trees. lol

And I bet that light does get people out of the way, it looks massive.

Ha. you guys are hilarious. You'll ***** about a first time jeep owner wanting power windows or chrome step rails but you praise yourselves for putting multiple sets of aux lights on your ride.

Someone tell me what the real point of extra lights is for?

Unless you're on a safari hunting wild game at night, its just cosmetic, as much so as someone who opts for the power convenience group or four doors!

Anyone else seeing the hipocrisy here?

^^^ Hmmm, not quite. ^^^^

After an extended trip in the field on the John Day, believe me, the added amber front lights were definitely needed. Also realized that a rear tailgate/trailer light is the next mod.

Cosmetic? Hardly.

Interesting. Nice pic of the lights in action on nightime trail.

Anyone else want to argue against my comment that aux lights are cosmetic?

Enlighten me...like I said, i'm a first time jeep owner, nearly 2 months in.

I think it just depends. My added lights don't get used much, so they're more cosmetic than anything else I suppose, but lots of the guys here who've got tons of lights use them on the trail frequently. So I think on the whole most guys who add lights are putting them to good use. I'm personally all in favor of cosmetic mods though and think that a part of what makes a wrangler a great vehicle is it's ability to be modded into a hardcore offroad vehicle or a really great looking ride that's good at everything.

well... I'm not sure if you've ever been to the John Day area of NE Oregon. I need them & use them...

But, don't take my word for it. Ask crews from the Dakar, Trans Siberian, Baja-1000 for starters. In the field, having a decent well-thought out light helps a ton.













Speaking of which... Does anybody else follow the Paris/Dakar (now just called Dakar)? I wonder if any privateer is running a Jeep product (especially a new JK). Seems like it'd be a great fit... If it were only a diesel.

I just finished installing the last of mine. 150w long range KC's on the windshield mounted with KC mounts. 130w KC drivers and 55w hella 500's mounted in between the frame rails with a custom fabricated bar.








And as for the "lights are for losers" butt hurt guy....

THIS




Is about 100x's better than this...




ESPECIALLY when youre in the country, away from any city lights, and on a trail where you need to pick a line and judge your path long before you come up on an obstacle. Not all of us have street lights here. My "cosmetic only" lights have saved me a bumper or two from hitting free range cattle on the back roads where I live.



I have the 4 KC's wired together, and theyre on just about all the time while in the country or on the trail after dark. While on paved roads though, I use the hellas to supplement the low beams. They really come in handy while driving in mist/ rain.
