PIAA ATP Windshield Mount Lights?

Hi All,

I have a 2014 Rubicon and I want to buy some lights to mount on the windshield A-pillars. I was thinking of going with the PIAA 510 4" or the 520 6" ATP (All Terrain Pattern). Has anyone used these lights before with this light pattern? Should I go with the 4" or 6"?

Thanks,

It's up to you dude, it really all depends on what you like better. Personally I like 6" better because i think the 4" are a bit too small, if it helps here is a pic of my 6" inch KCs.

Thanks for the pic.

Do they impede your view through the windshield when turning corners?

Not really, these lights dont have any hood glare for me. If it's completely dark outside I would suggest upgrading the fog light bulbs to LEDs...or slowing down before you turn lol

Thanks for your reply.

I was actually referring to the physical size of the light impeding the view when turning or looking left through the windshield.

These lights produce spot beams (pencil beams) and do not obstruct the view

The lights themselves are not in the way either.

I know windshield angles, a pillars, and bodies are completely different between the YJ & JK but I'll tell you I've ran the 5" or 6" (whatever size they are..) pair of PIAAs (I think 520 series?) on my current and previous YJ for about 10 years now. When sitting at a 4-way stop, if someone is sitting at the stop sign to the left, my view of them is obstructed through the windshield. I'd have to see them through my driver window. So I'd say they do impede your view, but not too bad. Just be cautious and double check to your driver side if you go with them.

Mine are spot beam HID so I can't help with the pattern you mentioned, but I do love mine.. No hood glare.

JD95YJ, how'd you mount and wire the windshield lights? I'm looking to do this in the next few weeks on my YJ and been searching for the best ways to mount the lights and hide the wiring. Heard good and bad things on multiple mounts on the market. Just curious what route you went. Thanks for any help.
