Delta lights

So do the delta headlight kits really suck? I see people talking about the other brands. I have to admit that if I can find a product that looks and functions well than I tend to lean towards that item. I like the look of the delta's but was just wondering about their performance. If I'm going to spend money I'd at least like people to know I've changed something

This four-way comparison doesn't look at some brands that ought to be evaluated (Wipac makes a good lamp, IPF isn't as good as is claimed, there's a nice looking but cruddy aluminum-reflector line from Nunseing Sirius in China being brought in by a couple different marketers...).

I have the Delta Quad-bars in my JK. Pattern is CRAP, but they're brighter than the stock junk. Would I buy them again? Probably not... Mark W.
