I posted this in a thread last month...links to several large, round LED lights:
There was a shootout article recently in Overland Journal, dealt with all sorts of different LEDs, how they work, how to determine what you need. All rigorously tested...
Some brands of the larger, round versions (*WARNING* some of these are expensive):

|SilverMiner||I like the look of these lights but dissapointed they are using leds that have been around for years, there are much brighter ones available. So I'm working on securing some similar lights using the new XM L2 leds in a 3x2 pattern like the D2s. 6000 lumens verses D2s at 2600 or something like that. Should be interesting. May be fabbung my own brackets too.|

|FDHog||I used to have KC's on my front end, now I'm running Dually D2's Driving Beam and a Rigid 4" Spot Lightbar. More light than I need.|

There's a swedish guy on the forum that has the D2's and the whole bunch of video's on youtube showing the difference between low beam, high beam and the D2 in a forrest during the night. Really convincing stuff! He has put the swith in a factory hole in the A-pillar as well btw. Looks great. Can remember his name though....

Other than off roading after dark, what would you use those lights for?
Obviously they are too bright for use on road with headlights, even in fog conditions, yea??
I do like them, the look and the light output in such a small package, but don't know if I'd have a use for them unless they can be used as fog lights....

The way I look at it is, if you have enough lights to angle in which ever direction you want light, why not go with the spots all around? That way you have long distance lighting at any field of view. To me the headlights will provide enough light for close range.
My plan is to get the Olympic or RR light bar for the stock bumper and run three dually spots. I think that would be more than enough light! I may also fab up some kind of bumper mount to put two more duallys under the bar... I know overkill but when I hit the lights I want it to be like the sun is coming up lol. Going to get three dually spots, the light bar, and ill go from there.

I have the standard Dually spots on windshield brackets. Like you, I have been considering adding a second set to the bumper. I am leaning towards using a pair of the standard Duallys like I have on the windshield, but get either the hybrid flood pattern, or the diffusion pattern model instead of the spot. That way I can get very bright, but short distance illumination good for going down narrow roads and trails where I am not going very fast.
I like the idea of being able to have a lot of light with a wide field of view out to a distance of about 30 yards or so. The windshield spots give you distance. The floods give you a bright foreground. I think that would be a good combination.

Would the Dually Spots or the D2's be better for mounting on the bumper/windshield?
Right now I have the spots on my windshield. I am going to be ordering some more but not sure which ones to go with for the bumper. Also I see the spots shine out to 395m vs. the D2's at 298m. The D2's being twice the price I could get 4 of the spots for a pair of D2's. I want at least 3 so I feel the spots would be my best bet as far as price wise.

Has anyone had problems with their Duallys. I bought mine today and just installed them and they worked for about 10 seconds then they both went off. i have checked everything. The swith will light up when i turn it on but the lights do nothing. Fuse good. Wiring harness seem to be good. Not sure if its the lights, switch or harness. It could be one of the lights if the harness connects them in a series instead of parallel.
