    Oh man. That's a close one. I've always had a affinity towards light bars BUT. When I got an FJ I went with the round lights because of the round headlights. Only reason 🤣

      3 tundi tagasi

      @aola wili that'd a good question. But I think that because all the lights are evenly spaced in a curved pattern is why. It's throwing less light in one direction, like the KCS did, and spread it out.

    Not worth it unless you're doing high-speed baja racing. Otherwise, for lower speeds and rock crawling, you want a smooth, even, big pattern to light up your vicinity well enough to see it with your nigh-adapted eyes. Any brighter than that, and you are just ruining your night vision

    I have an old set of low dollar led lights on my Jeep. Im in the PNW where there’s always trees and bushes for the light to reflect off of the low dollar lights are more then bright enough. But when Im in the Southern California deserts at night you can easily out drive your lights. That’s where the higher end lights are worth the money.

    Needs more comparison about the actual lighting at night. When Nolan was talking about how the KCs had better clarity. A side by side of the mounted go pro footage would have shown us the difference between the lights in seconds. This video is a failure in showing us the real world difference in how the lights light up the night unfortunately.

    God bless you and God bless anyone reading this! Hope you have an awesome day! Seek him while you can! Jesus is the way and the only way and he is returning soon! Whenever you think you aren't loved... Remember the ultimate sacrifice was for love! ENDING YOUR LIFE IS NEVER THE ANSWER! For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV The wages of sin is death (hell) but Jesus paid our debt on the cross, for our salvation! We must turn to God and away from our sinful ways, Confess Jesus is Lord and believe with our hearts that he was risen from the dead by God, and we must be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit and live by His word and Commandments! Trust that God will help with the rest! Seek God today before it's too late! Today could be your last day on earth! Have a blessed day! ----

    Best part about the cheap lights? You can buy multiples. One bar on the roof, one bar across the bumper, the little spotlamps on the bumper corners and front corners on the roof. The ability to light up a greater area in your immediate field of vision while driving is greater than that of the KC lights. The KC lights might go further, but a more completely lit up area is probably actually better for driving at night.

    the types of lights used are different . the light bar is ment more for flood lighting . the KC light bar set up is ment for distance . you cant compare light systems that arre for two different thing . you are comparing apples and oranges .

    Seems to me the low truck kit was more useable as mounted though. I suspect the KC system could probably match it with a little tinkering around with the aiming/patterning though but, man for 90 bucks that's really hard to argue with.

    The KC lights were better, proven with testing and on the trail, BUT, I think, realistically, it's hard to beat the $90 lights on the low truck. If I had a big budget, definitely the KC's, but as a working stiff, I'll spend that extra $1900 on things like rent, food, gas, etc...

    Hi truck is kind of turning into just a pretty boy. You guys have some great components on there but you’re adding way too much weight and unnecessary crap and it’s gonna start to hurt the truck’s performance. Locking diffs and $5000 suspension aren’t gonna mean much when you have 1000 extra pounds on there. More weight can be beneficial to a certain point but these trucks are a 3.4 liter v6, eventually it’s just not strong enough to perform well at that amount of weight. Low truck is probably much lighter and may start to actually be slightly better before long. Just slapping a ton of expensive shit on there doesn’t make it better

    I would rather demolish some cheap lights over time instead of expensive. The eventually break anyway. Also battery life/usage. Less stress. Put some red color effect gel on them. (Rosco Lee 106- prim.Red). Helps with visibility. More doesn’t mean better in some cases. Your eye’s adjust to darkness over time. Red light helps contrast and you can still see the stars afterwards. Also.. try navigating trough a sea of musquito’s with your portal to heaven setup. Red light doesn’t attract and distract the critters. I hate the Melolontha.

    That last part when they were talking about the two different setups, and the part about wanting to drive at night. I like driving at night. I like how quiet it is. Less cars on the road, plus, I drive a lot off road or on small narrow dirt roads. I have a lightbar setup worth around 240euro, and it's a kind of lightbar with 45 degree ends to throw light in a almost 90 degree angle out. Which is a killer on narrow dirt roads with dense forests around you. Honestly speaking, if it wasn't for that light bar, I would not be comfortable driving on some roads. Especially not during moose hunting season. I can say that for most people, a cheap lightbar setup is worth it, for seeing more. But if you've got the money and want to light up the night like a portable sun, then go ahead and buy the more expensive setup.
