sorry i forgot to add, im talking about the driving lights, not fog . I see that the highlites only come in 100 watt in the driving lights, were as the daylighters come in 130 watt,

I've got the thin KC lites on windshield mounts. fantastic at night for me. picked it up at 4wd.com

my only complaint is that they attract every bug for miles around to my windshield when i am driving down a back road with them on. other than that they light up the woods trails good at night.

100w will be plenty I have 55w procomps and they are bright. But since Watts arent a good way at all to look at th brightness of a light, you never know unless you know the lumens or candlepower.

I think the slimlights have 200,000 candle power and the daylighters will have a bit more and will be brighter. If you have the extra space to the daylighters I would. If space matters like a windshield mount I would go slimlight. Daylighters are cheaper too which is a bonus

I have Daylighters on my windshield in 100watt and they outshine my high beams. Best $100 I have spend on my Jeep. Helps spot the elk at a good distance father than my headlights.

Thanks for all the input. I decided to go with dAylighters. I've only heard good things about them and it left me a little extra money for other thing I want. Thanks

I got the kc slim lights driving lights mounted on the Rugged Ridge light bar on the bumper and The slim lights spot beam on the windshield mounts. Love all the light. The driving light pattern is definitely the way to go I use them alot on back roads when there is no other traffic and I love it. Cool thing about the JK is you dont really deal with the light reflecting off the hood like you do with the TJ's.
