I have owned 4 different sets of PIAA's on various Jeeps, never had a failure yet.. I would recommend them... never had the KC's so I can't comment on those.

I have PIAA on my windshield and KC on the grill. The PIAA are SO much better. I can't remember if I have the 510 or 520. Whatever is 3.5 or 4" In diameter I have. They are just phenomenal. Don't get me wrong, I like my KC's and actually use them a bit more but something about the PIAA seems sturdier. KC does have a really nice warranty tho. That's why I have them mounted lower. Any rocks break them or something else breaks them I can get them fixed for free

Off-Road Long-Range Truck Light System

Don't know how they compare to the big names KC and PIAA. But for 28 dollars I will be buying a set to try out tomorrow. Checking to see if the local store has them first. I plan to get the KC light covers for them.

They're super bright. Someone has some
Pics in an install thread. They're comparable to the brights imo. I've got white spots on windshield mounts.

I purchased a set of the PIAA's and love them. I love them so much that I want to add a second pair. Very easy install with good quality parts.

The rigid duallys are awsome! Ive never ran any other light so I dont know how they compare but I have two on the windshield mounts and three more to put on my bumper bar, if it ever arrives. I live in a lot farm land so I wanted to be able to see a long distance and these things work great for that. These things would vaporize any zombies that cross your path. LOL
