    I like the pods. Going to put them on my JK also. What did you get, the spot or floods? You happy with them? I was thinking about the spot lights.

    Lift kit only added about an inch, went from 31 inch tires to 33 inch tires. little more of a step to get in but the lift kit made the ride so much smoother. All 4 of my shocks were completely blown. compressed them last night and they still haven't extended hahah feels like I'm driving a caddy now

    If you put pods in the ditch location you will want a spot pattern. Flood will cover your hood in light and reflect back.

    If you google baja designs light chart it wil show you the best pattern for each application of auxiliary lighting on your vehicle.

    Already bought and installed on the A-Pillars. I ended up getting flood which I regret. I should have picked up spots. But, since I turned them a bit more to the outside. They don't reflect off the hood that bad. And I kinda like how they light up more of both sides of the street or trail. The little trail I run every now and then has a lot of deer and wild turkeys. They see me coming and they freeze in their tracks. Lol.

    I do plan on installing duels in the future. And I will pick up spots this time.

    Got a pair of driving and a pair of flood LEDs. Installed the flood LEDs in the rear for the zombies on my blind side.

    No Zombies down here. We do have the Jersey Devil here in the Pine Barrens. Maybe I should hook up a few in the back also. :jerkoff:
