Good Spotlights?

From experience what would be some really good spotlights i could mount to my jeep that would be as good or (perferably) better than my stock headlights?

Look for the aircraft landing light thread.

You shouldn't be using spotlights while driving on public roads, even for high beams. At least I wouldn't, I'd rather use a good pair of driving lights.

KC Daylighters are EXCELLENT offroad spotlights. KC makes great driving lights as well.

Well obviously I wouldnt use them on the road but I did see those aircraft light thread but want something just to buy and stick on there. I've have several regular lights but they don't put off enough some want something with distance in mind

I was curious bout the day lighters

Kc makes nice stuff for sure.

I will be honest i was a bit leary about the aircraft lights my self. They are super bright and will go the distance. Light goes 1/4 mile at least. I can light up enough to see at 500-600 ft easy. They are just buy and wire em up.

If you can insatll a set of KC's you can install these..

2 housings, 2 bulbs, 1 relay, 1 switch..... How much easier does it get?

I will also be honest to say that I looked at lotsa lights and when I saw the prcetags I decided to give them a shot. Glad I did. High end light beam for low money.

Now I just want a low buck flood light and i'm set.

FWIW, you can retrofit a set of 55w HID's into the KC Daylighters and increase your light output by almost 2x. Ontop of that, the distance you can see is even greater, I have done a bit of measuring and have concluded that I am lighting objects up almost a mile away. Going down a long straight of freeway at night I'm lighting up signs even farther than that like daylight. Probably a good 4-5 miles down the road
