I get why people are upgrading their head lights and fogs... from the factory they suck.
But I don't get why people are adding all the extra lighting to their rigs. The obvious answer is that they use them to see when off roading but on the east coast they only place to off road is Rausch and I don't THINK they allow night wheeling (I could be wrong). It would be hard to use them on the street, the extra lights would absolutely blind oncoming traffic... it might even be illegal to use them on the street.
So, apart from the fact that a Jeep looks REALLY COOL with all the extra lights.. why spend the money?
Please don't listen to anything I just said, I am lieing. If I am not lieing then I am just plain wrong.
I don't have any extra lights but I've wheeled in the dark a couple times on the East Coast. There are hundreds of places to wheel that aren't "parks" such as Rausch Creek. That being said, I probably wouldn't get the lights because I don't go out in the dark often enough and I may be the only person who does NOT like the way they look.
when it is 2am and you are 100 miles from the nearest populated area, things get REALLY dark. rock lights seem like one of those silly unnecessary things but I dont think I will ever rock crawl at night without them.
I have auxiliary lights on my Jeep for two reasons. The number 1 reason is they look good, and so do the lighted switches on the interior. Number 2, when you get outside of the city lights, things get dark and they become damn handy to have.
ETA....I also have a reverse flood light that is very handy at night no matter where I'm at.
