    Looking for some input. I am wanting to add some extra light to the rig and I have narrow it down to 2 choices.
    KC- nostalgia, round, led 2500 ish lumens
    Baja designs - fugly, ugly really don't like the look one bit, but..... 9000k lumens

    You see the problem?
    KC lights just look right on jeep they have comparable light output to every major brand, except Baja designs.
    Baja designs for some reason I can't stand the look of, even with a round bezel I hate the square ish pattern to the lights, but.... 9000 damn lumens, by far the best light output. I really can't decide...

    I'm with ya. I ran KC for a while, then tried a set of Baja Design lights. Havent looked back. Baja Designs has more features (Power, Swappable Lenses & Reflectors), and more output.

    You also pay for all of that. They are they most expensive light. The strobe and stuff like that won't work because I will have running into a sPod, no 3 way switch. But I have seen both in action and the Bajas are unbelievable. But soooo ugly!

    The strobe just need to be run to a ground thru a separate wire. That being said, I don't run it myself. Pricey, Yeah. BUT, They are made in USA, lifetime warranty, and Baily on here will make sure youre taken care of. Oh......THey are also much more water proof than the KC's.

    Just to chime in. Hope I'm still liked after this post. Lol.

    Always liked KCs. They do look nice. But recently. I've been going with what works best with what I'm tried to accomplish. And since LEDS are il legal here in NJ. I installed what I could piss off the guy in front of me doing 15 in a a 45 zone. Lol. Just kidding.

    KCs are nice. But I like the LEDs.

    The KC's just look right on a Jeep. They match the round headlights. Can't fault the Baja designs though. Everyone says they're the best.
