Off road lights

Hi everyone. Wanting to add some off road lights to my tj. I am wanting them to put out a lot of light in all directions in front. Not looking for a focused spotlight beam. Any recommendations?

I have floods on the windshield brackets. Spots on the bumper. I tried them both ways and I prefer the floods up top. Some glare on the hood but nothing to worry about.

If you're going with one set, maybe a hybrid spot/flood driving beam? Those work well on the bumper

I have 2 KC daylighters mounted on my front brush guard. They are a solid light for the price and they do a great job of just giving me supplemental light when I need it. I essentially use them as brights on steroids, but they are also useful off road...I'd recommend them.

This is what I did with my KC Daylighters. They're the spot/flood hybrids and they only cost around $130. Then again, mine are a little higher up on an aftermarket bumper, which helps a lot.

The best lighting upgrade I made is Truck-Lite phase 7 headlights.
The output is amazing at least 2 times brighter and 3 times whiter .
I have to 2 HID PIAA on frt bumper and 4 on windshield light bar.
All powered by a mean green alt. producing 90/220 amps.

The Truck-Lite phase 7 headlights are worth the high price of 700 and makes
general driving at night safer and less stressful

We use them on wild fire trucks we build and have had some good luck with them holding up to the abuse. They offer a few other styles too. Heavy duty light with a pretty heavy price, but you get what you pay for.

They aren't cheap but they will last longer than your Jeep will...

Plus you have to see the amount of light these put out for yourself. Pics don't do them justice.
