Yeah, I've got a pair of the lollypop lights, but I'm gonna add the trailer style light too. I like those better. I'm gonna hook up the lollypop's to a trailer light harness that I can plug into the back of my truck when I tow it.

What do you guys prefer in the way of Offroad lighting? Roof or Bumper mounted? Square or rounded? KC or HELLA or other? One Switch for all, or seperate switches? Very Happy

personally I like round lights cuz I think they look better and I think you have a better choice in candle power. I had roof mounted lights on my last Baja and they worked great, however you do get a lot of glare. I think I'm going to go with bumper mounted light this time. I would also recommend several switches. I like to have at least 2 one for the center two lights and one for the outer two slightly angled out. (if you want to go with that many)
Another reason to go with more than one switch is for safety of your electrical system, usually no more that 2 lights per switch and use relays so you don't cook any wires or the switch itself.
I haven't really committed to a brand yet, I kinda like the best quality for the lowest price kind Smile

Anyone else.....

I run 4 lights on the front of the baja, on the roof the 2 in the center are KC Floods, 2 out sides are KC Spots, The front fenders are 5" head lights, and the 2 front centers are white fog type lights. I have 1 rear flood for backup and 2 white side lights (Must Have for off road at night).

Make sure your roof lights are far back and cast a shadow on your hood, if the lights are in front of the window you will never see out of the car. I have also found out I run with the floods the most, as the spots do not have a great cover area but shoot way down the road.
