off road windshield lights???

I have a wrangler and I'm wanting to start going 4 wheeling I want to put lights on my windshield mounts. Lights will be used only off road I want something with a nice wide spread so I can see everything I need to but also go about 20 or 30 yards ahead of me. Looking to spend under 130. Thanks

Not quite 130 bucks, but probably worth the extra $20. They are available in flood pattern and beam pattern.

I went and bought some cheapos from harbor freight. they were only 10 bucks a piece and they shine bright. they're more of a beam though, which is why I have 4, all aimed around different places.

look into mounts for the lights too. mine were around 25

Well I bought some cheap once last week and can't stand the beam look so figures I would go ahead and spend the money. I'm between the kc 151 and 634 which one you think would be better for me? I can't find any videos on the and u can't go by the description I have figured out. Ha thanks

You want to see 20-30 yard in front of you? That's nothing for kc. The driving lights will give you a nice wide wall of light, but will probably cause some glare off of your hood. Pencil/spot beams would be better in that particular location.

My buddy has a set of the kc 634 and those things will light the whole road up those are worth the extra $20 over the 151's

I got a pair if paramount 6" LED round lights that I mounted on the sides if my windshield and they are brighter than any of my friends halogen lights. And they were only 140!

for that kind of distance, I would say leds also. even those cheap leds light up very well but no projection which is what you're looking for anyways. do your research and you'll find leds that suit your needs for well under $100 total, about $75 installed. ...basically you want kickass backup/work lights.
