When it comes to off-road and on-road aftermarket lighting accessories for the Jeep Wrangler,
KC HiLites is the undeniable king. With a large range of different lighting options available for any
purpose and plenty of accessories that work with and for them, its easy to see why most Jeep owners
choose KC for their Jeep Wrangler lighting needs.
Making sure you select the right lighting kit for your Wrangler can be the deciding factor between
being able to see the narrow path before you on a forest trial when dark starts creeping in or having
the ability to still be able to make out the road from the ditch when the snowfall becomes blinding
and the road begins to blend with the surrounding area. Lets take a look at the four different popular
lighting patterns and determine which light design is applicable your Jeep Wranglers lighting needs.
Jeep Fog Lights:
The fog light is designed to emit a beam of light that is wide and low to the ground, with the lights
themselves being typically mounted below the headlamps. The beam is projected at a short range so most
of the intensity is focused directly in front of the vehicle. The fog lights purpose is to allow the driver
to see the road in front of them even in heavy and dense fog, torrential rain, biting dust storms, and
confusing snow flurries.
Jeep Flood Lights:
Work lights is also another term which used instead of flood lights. This type of light projects light
over a large area so that ground operations can be preformed by a team of individuals. Often mounted to
the topmost bar on Jeep Wranglers or on the sides, these lights can provided illumination to a area which
is great for deer hunters and construction workers among other applications.
Jeep Long Range Lights:
The long range light is great for drivers running desert trials at high speeds or outdoorsmen trying
to find the best path to get their Jeep Wrangler out of a clearing as night descends and the edges of
the field become intangible. Long distance lights are able to produce a tight, focused beam of light
that can penetrate further than typical lights allowing for long distance clarity. Long Rangle lights
typically use the most power and output more candle watts than other lights. Mounting is usually done
at higher points then fog or driving lights so the installer can angle the light better and keep the
beam from reflecting off of the hood or other surfaces.
Jeep JK Driving Lights:
As the sound, driving lights work as supplemental lighting to work in conjunction with your normal
headlights. Offering more power and great candle watts than stock Jeerp Wrangler headlights, many of
these are not legal in most states for on-road use. However they do provide increased range of sight
and tend to highlight areas in the peripheral sections of normal viewing. These advantages make them
great for general trail use or driving empty roads.
From the privateers to the pros, KC has been pioneering higher-quality off-road lighting since
1970. Since the beginning, KC’s involvement with motor sports has been critical to the process
of designing, engineering and manufacturing the most advanced auxiliary lighting available.
Their competition HID lights are now found on many winning off-road race vehicles including
Scott Douglas, Curt LeDuc, Ron Whitton, Randy Merritt, Rick Doetsch, Todd Wyllie and many
others. As the original manufacturer of off-road auxiliary lighting, KC HiLiTES not only set
the standard for the category – they created it.
