ok so this 2 feet of snow had me thinking when the big ol caterpiliar front end loaders were in my neighborhood doing what cats do. they had all of their lights on and they were very bright. so i got to thinking.. cat lights on jeep? hmm idea... did a little research and it seems that they run on a 24 volt system.? is this correct or what would i need to make it work.
Forget ththe CAT lights and look up PIAA, KC or Hella's......get 100-130 watt bulbs. Plant 4 or 6 of these up front, windshield, or roof rack and you'll get calls to light up a landing strip or football fields at night.
Sure those super brands are bright but for snow you should only use the ones that are lower than your headlights. I've got windshield lights and if I turn them on while its snowing hard you can't see $&!#, and thats kinda dangerous
These work great for me.....Hella 500 FF They are lower then the headlights and throw our some awesome light. Two outters are 55 watt, two inner are 100 watt and Im adding a middle light since ther is an extra tab between the two inner ones.
Yeah if your talking snow or fog you want to have them down low to keep visibility up. I have KC Highlights and I couldn't be happier. All my friends go "Holy Shit" when I turn them on because it's like daylight wherever they are pointing.
