JK Lighting

Hi all,
I'm looking to get some ideas/suggestions for some lighting for my 2012 Rubicon JK. Looking to keep the price between $200-$300. Hood mounted vs windshield mounted vs bumper mounted. I'm thinking I may have to go with hood or windshield mounted because of where my winch is? (see pic) All suggestions welcomed. Thanks in advance

I've also been thinking about adding some lights. Looking at light bars for the top or maybe just some small units on the back corners. Most of the stuff I like is square LED, but I've got the round KC lights on the windsheild. Not sure what to do

20.00 and mounts on the fairlead..... Poison spyder and several others make them as well..... I'd consider getting the hella 700's. they are bright and cheap... If you smash one, its a 30.00 light rather than 300.00.... Otherwise go led and small/compact (assuming Justin's warn's don't work out for you)!

On a side note... I went the windshield light route before.... It's true you get a ton of glare off the hood which limits visibility. I'd go over the windshield/on top of the rig or on the bumper/fairlead....

Glare is right, especially on my silver Jeep Glad you brought that point up as it's not something one would think about when shopping around.

I've been thinking about making a deflector for my two KC lights to help cut down on how much hits the hood.
