Smile Help me decide on lights! Please

I have a pair of kc long range apollos on windshield mounts currently and I am thinking of buying an Olympic front bar mount (almost like a stinger). I want to move the apollos to the light bar and possibly put daylighters (I love the smilie face) on my windshield. Problem is I don't need 2 sets of long range lights...what do I do?

I like the led lights. You can find them on amazon for pretty cheap. They are crazy bright!

Are you set on a type of light? Leds? HIDs? Halogens?

No, not necessarily. I don't really have a problem with the regular ones though...

heres a pic, not the best or a close up but i have them mounted on the windshield hinge. The antenna does rub against it but in my experience they haven't taken any paint off just leaves a weird mark so i wrapped the antenna in electrical tape to alleviate that problem a little bit

I have the Mopar light bar and fog lights. The state says I'm at my light limit with 8.

I currently have a single row LED across the top of my windshield on my TJ


but had this set up previously & its for sale if you want to make me an offer. 5 lights 100W each set up on 2 separate circuits with relays and lighted contura switches that fit in the factory switch bezels


Here it is formerly mounted on my 1997 TJ
