Off road light shape

Any one here run rectangle off road lights? I was wanting to run round but they won't fit the way I want. Any pics or light suggestions will be most appreciated

Depends on what you want to light up. Just for looks, or function, or both? Round lights are more for a spot light. Usually a narrow beam that shines farther straight ahead. A rectangular light is more like a flood light. They light up more to the sides than straight ahead. Don't get me wrong a rectangular light can shine straight a great deal too. It also depends on the wattage of the bulb in the light.

Square lights are nice, I had 8 running on my XJ, along with 2 round ones.

Lets just say no more blind spot problems

Where are you looking to put the lights? On your bumper?

I'm running both. Square driving lights (55W) in the Renegade fender locations and round (100W) KCs on the bumper loop. It's a good combination.

I also went with square just because I think they look better with the factory headlights.
