    totally pointless test. you only measured the quality of the glow and the evaluation of the leaves' appearance. What about dirt, dust and water resistance. Here you can see a huge difference. And long-term endurance. Such cheap light panels as they get water can not withstand a single trip (if they are treated hard).

    Do the same test after few months. I used to have cheap one for few years on my LR Defender. After some time they got water inside, some led bulbs died and light temperature changed to blueish one. Reliability was also an issuse.

    I run 3 light bars on my roof rack, a set of recessed pod lights in my rear bumper and a set of pod lights on my front bumper. I run 5 switches, one for each light bar, one for the rear lights and one for the front lights. Why didn’t low truck run a different switch for the front pods than the light bar? I would have wired in two different switches.

    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 🤣



      Degi Síðan síðan

      @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

    They do look cooler, no doubt. But 100 vs 2000.... damn. In terms of practicality, both work equally fine (as a viewer here, I was not there dude!). You don't need to see that far ahead in that type of terrain.

    You should have tested which light drains your battery faster when the truck is off. I've heard that a more expensive light bar will not draw as much power as the cheaper ones do.

    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.

    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
