    Hi all - The wife and I are having a 'disagreement' on which type of off-road light to go with. I think the round kind are cool, but she says that since I have square headlamps, that I should go with square lights to be visually correct. We need some examples of each to help make a final decision, so if you have off-road lights on your rig, please send a pic. These lights will be mounted on the front tube bumper... see my rig (beefcake83). Eventually I'd like to go with the roof rack w/ lights. Thanks, Gary

    I always think round lights kind of break out of all the square shapes. Look better. But then again, who am I.

    If they're KC then they can be round cause they're....well....KC's. I had an '86 with cheapo offroad lights that were square and a freind had square headlights with round offroad lights (KC's) and those looked good also. Oh! They were on the push bar. Where are you putting them?

    After pondering for a while (like 2 min) go with round ones if they're big ones. Please, PLEASE, don't put dinky round ones on it!

    I'd suggest the round ones. Ever knoticed how awlful the rectangle ones look if they aren't perfectly straight? Trailer TRASH mobile. I'd suggest the round ones.

    I have 2 sets of rectangle hella's on my s-10 (in the grill). I don't have any on my Blazer yet. :( They look cool there. If I was to put them in front of the grill I would go with round. The round lights are brighter for the same wattage than the square.

    How about you get 3 lights on the front . . . the two outsides can be round and the one in the middle can be rectangular! haha! Personally I like the circular.
