need lighting advice for my bull bar

Just as the title says I have a need for light! (who with a jk doesn't?) I was wondering what you guys are running. I am debating between an led bar and round "kc" style lighting....which would be better/put out more light? I am getting ready for a trip to glamis and a guy I am going with says in the sand you can't have too much light! here is a pic of the front of my rig

I've got PIAA they do pretty good. but I wish I would have gone with the Rigid D2's more $$ but probably worth it....
A 17" light bar might also be pretty nice if you have the cash..

Routed it thru the driver side and used some really good double sides tape and put it next to the locker and away bar switches.
It's the switch that came with the lights and is a small button in an enclosed case so it's got a back. Not the normal looking switch.

I've not done much with LEDs. But I sure love my KC Daylighters. 130 watts each. Wow they put out some long range light. Cheap - about $65 each and warranty is 23 years (dunno why, but that's what it says).

You have a nice looking Rig for sure, like your orange tow rings. Nice MO tag in the front. I'm in KC.
