Tube bumper clamp question

I think I'm about to mount some 5.5" or 6" KC hilites (fog or driving) to the bumper of my JK. I've got a Rugged Ridge 3" tube stubby with a hoop and winch mount. I'm planning to eventually get a winch, but for now I'm going to mount the lights upside down to fill in the gap between the bumper and hoop.

I'm trying to decide on the clamp to use for the lights. So far, I'm leaning towards the clamps below because I'm assuming they will be compatible with KC lites. Does anyone have any experience with using those clamps?

KC HiLiTES 7307 - KC HiLiTES Tube Clamp - Quadratec


I've also debated the ones below as they look kind of cool, but I'm not sure if they are compatible with KC lights (but probably would be with my bumper).

Rugged Ridge 11030.01 - Rugged Ridge X-Clamp in Black - Quadratec

While i have no experience with either one, im sure they are both compatible with KC lights.
But once again, no experience with either one

The KC clamps work great with the rugged ridge bumper.

Is that a three inch tube?
