well right now i have 2 on my bumper and within a couple of days im installing a light bar which holds 4 and the wind shield brackets which are 2 so ill have a total of 8 lights.. ill post a picture when there done. but you should go for the wind shield brakcets and the bumper ones. i wouldnt recomend doing light bar and wind shield mounts becasue im currently having a problem with the mounting location becasue they use the same one. so yea heres a picture of my jeep!

I find lights mounted above the windshield are annoying. You put a lift on, good luck getting into a parking garage, or maybe even your own garage. Personally, I also find them to be overkill....and a little tacky. Don't mean to offend anyone, just my opinion.

I just put a light bar on the front with 2 KC Slimline driving lights and one KC slimline Long Range light in the middle. I plan on putting 2 of the long Range lights on the windshield. I pointed the 2 driving lights to the sides of the road. Works really good, now just cant wait to put the two on the windshield.

Sorry trying to figure out how to get pics on here!

If you trail ride anything above the windshield wont last long due to low tree limbs. Pay attention to the lights' beam projection before you buy them for anything that is mounted above or on the hood. Anything that is not a "spotlight" projection beam will be extremely blinding inside the jeep. I like my pair mounted on the windshield hinges & plan to maybe mount 2 more on the bumper after my winch install...

I wouldn't put any more than 2 lights on a single fuse / switch though, those lights draw a lot of power, and if you actually plan to use them regularly, very many will put a huge strain on your stock alternator.
