Toolin Around I think the angle of the light output varies by manufacturer. I have seen that some spot lights are 10 degree "pencil beam" where others may be 45 degrees. I would try and look at actual pictures of the light output or check the manufacturer's web page and see if it has a graph of the usable light output.

WeekenderATX I think I read somewhere that spots put out a 45 degree wedge of light where floods put out 120 degrees. Something like that.

Jeepguy7972 I used 5 RR halogen up top. They can reach out but also light up close to. Then I went with 4 hella black magic driving lights ( 2 on windshield and 2 on bumper) those are long range only. Next I am going to add a couple wide beam lights on the back. With all the light up front, it's still pitch black in the rear on the trails.

Toolin Around Some depends on what you are going to use them for and your local laws. Some (maybe most) states do not allow you to use lights that are higher than your headlights on the road. I would recommend using Driving or Fog beam on the bumper so you you can use them on the road. For the windshield I would use long range as there is less chance of reflection or glare off the hood. As for the light bar, you could use Driving or Long Range. You may want to do the bumper and windshield lights and see how it looks at night and figure out if you need more long range light or more light close up(driving beam) it may end up being a combination of both on separate switches. Good luck and post pictures of what you decide.

Lighting Question

I recently just bought a 2013 JK Wrangler sport Unlimited 4 door. I'm going to be putting on a lightbar with 5 lights, 2 windshield lights and 2 lights on the front bumper. I'm going to go with the KC Apollo Pro series. I'm new to this and don't know which lights to put on The lightbar, windshield lights, and front bumper lights. They have the long-range beam, driving beam, and Fog beam. Does anyone have any suggestions of which lights I should use for each one? I'd appreciate any answers and feedback I can get, thank you very much!!
