The PIAA's have a black metal housing. Grill cover on the lights are plastic. Yes they come with all that stuff.

I got a set of the 6" PIAA 580's for my front bumper too. I'll post up pics after I get them installed.

phottomatt I like the KC daylighters, but I swapped the goofy yellow covers for the soft ones, black with red letters. They fit really well and blend in much better. The antenna does hit the lights a little but I put some shrink wrap on it to keep from scratching, there is a picture of it.

brodydez I did the warn lights on mine. They have that wireless system so you don't need to run any wires through the firewall. Pretty easy install too.

with a removable top, wiring is tough without a quick-release connector and with top off----where doitgo ??

I don't take my hardtop off anymore, but I do the "T" tops, so I'M not gonna set that spotlight way back on the hardtop and there just ain't nowhere else !!

The "GOLITE" does make a quick wired (placeontop) model but, for just personal and not duty--to much trouble !

JIMBOX Yea, law/SAR/Ambulance, but way to hard to modify the jeep to accept the remote use, but

I've used "GOLIGHT" in several of my past 4wds, but not on my JK, however they are phenomenal for off-road use with remote control




They rotate 370 degrees and you can remotely control them from 30/50 yds and that's kewl in the boondocks-if you're away from your vehicle and !!

at work we have those on our patrol cars ... And I think they are useful for delivery drivers or truck drivers ... But on a jeep they would probably just rattle around and get broke.

JIMBOX Anything above your headlights should be for off-road anyway

No matter what the state laws are !!

red_rider i'd say most people decided by their needs and where they live.. a 5" or 6" round daylighter is most common as one can use it for the road, the field.. nearly anywhere. a versatile light, which supposedly is as large as one can go before causing, thoughtfully, any distractions (according to rogerg ;P). mine are enormous, but they offer shattering light in the country and on the farm, and they REALLY p*ss off folk who drive too slowly at night; i hardly notice them when they're not in use on my drives. if you're unsure, definitely go with the smaller round kc's. bracket installation time is less than five minutes (unless your bolts are rusted), and if you know anything about electricity, light installation is less than half an hour.

haden1128 Thanks for the help and the pictures everybody!

Bombero -- Which brackets did you use?
11-23-2010 07:00 AM
daggo66 Mine's a little more unique. I mounted KC's on the KC hood mount light bar.

offshoretek I can't post any other pictures now because I'm offshore for another week but I have the 6" KC 50 series lights on Rugged Ridge brackets.

The lights are about 5" in depth and I still have at least 2" clearance between the back of the light and the windshield. Installation was relatively simple.
11-22-2010 09:32 PM
tabber02 what made you guys decide on the lights you all chose? seems like each of you chose differently, I was headed down the 6" Hella but now I'm not sure..

Based on everyones comments you all like them, but what was your deciding factor? Thanks for the feedback.

john's ct jeep KC slimlites love the look, work great only complant summer nights attract bugs big time when moving down the road.

Elevated Offroad I have the 6" Hella lights
11-22-2010 08:08 PM
Rogerg I got the KC 6" slimlite.I think its the perfect size for the windshield.Any bigger i would think will be a distraction.

11-22-2010 03:45 PM
red_rider you may also want to browse my profile- there are some other pictures you can see them on, too.
11-22-2010 03:44 PM
red_rider here is a set of kc 6" by 9" long-range lights.. deadly. i have a few on my camera that i will upload for you later tonight-- showing the brackets, a closeup, and an shot from above.

Windshield mounted lights - pics please

I want to mount some lights at the bottom corners of my windshield. If you have this setup, can you please post some pictures. I'm interested in the KC lights, mainly because they are the most economical, but I'm not sure if the 6 inch daylighters will work on the brackets or if I should go with the 6 inch slimlites. Your Thoughts?
