Changed out the factory fogs for Bosch rallye 175's. A lot brighter than the factory lights, I'm happy.

ARB Intensity 9.5" spot beam LED's and PIAA 530 LED fog lights:



The ARB's are incredibly bright! They'll illuminate a hillside 1 mile away. The only down side is that if there are enough reflective surfaces around (road signs) you'll blind yourself. Not that you should really be using these on the road anyway.



Also, after 1 year of sitting outside about 50% of the time the red plastic on the ARB's is starting to fade. To be expected but for the price I'd think it would take quite a bit longer. I'll be custom painting them soon.



The supplied switches (in both cases) left a lot to be desired. I built a custom panel out of some left over XJ parts for a factory finish:

The IPF lights are completely crap compared to LED. I will be replacing the IPF lights with ARB High Intensity lights.

Light force lights. Adjustable from spot to flood and colored lenses, diffused options and HID upgrades available. By and far the most versatile light on the market. I like my LED's but my lightforce are my bread and butter for every situation. Don't mind the 50", it didn't last long on my jeep.




Luck Favours The Prepared

Ive run halogen, hid, and led auxillary lights. Led is the way to go.

Even if it isn't a light bar? Do you feel pods or round clusters have greater light output than a 100w halogen?

My pods blow away my buddys warn halogens. He's saving up for led pods
They will have a greater output and less draw
