Different Kinds of Jeep Auxiliary Lighting

200,000 Candlepower Dual Beam Driving Light

When you are shopping for Jeep auxiliary lighting, you may find that there are so many different choices in auxiliary lighting that you become overwhelmed. In order to narrow down the field so that you aren’t spending too much time trying to decide, simply ask yourself whats your need for auxiliary lights. Once you know what you need the lights for, you can easily see what kind you need because auxiliary lights generally fall into four basic kinds.

The first kind of Jeep auxiliary lighting are driving lights. These lights have a white lens and a long range. The beams are pencil-style, meaning they are narrow and straight. These kinds of lights are great for seeing long distances and lighting up things that are far down the road.

The second kind of Jeep auxiliary lighting are fog lights. these yellow lensed lights have a gradual and spread out beam which illuminates the road by getting under the fog and lifting it. These lights illuminate the road right in front of you and are best for evening travel. They also are not bothersome to oncoming traffic, so you don’t have to worry about blinding anyone.

Nine inch round lights are lights that are perfect for overhead roof racks or for front light bars. These are the brightest auxiliary lights that you can get. These lights are best for lighting large areas, and are good lights if you want to go off road and feel you need a lot of light to do so.

The fourth kind of lighting are flood lights. These lights have a white lens and they light up everything behind you in a broad light. You do not want to have these on while driving but if you need to hook up a trailer or do something else behind your Jeep they are perfect.

Once you decide what category the Jeep auxiliary lighting you need falls into, it is much easier to decide what to buy. You won’t have to worry about buying flood lights when you need driving lights and can save yourself a good deal of time and hassle.

"You're telling me it's got four wheels, two seats and goes faster than the speed limit? Good, I'm driving."


  1. We do a lot of night off road driving so I had the overhead lights installed when I bought my Jeep. Recently we took her down to the river bottoms and fog lights would have come in right handy at that point. We had a great time so I’m sure we’ll be going back so I guess fog lights are next on the list. I didn’t expect fog at this time of the year but it sure was there.


  2. You’re right about the possibilities being numerous. I appreciate you explaining their functions. It’s funny that they don’t give more of this type of information on the box of lights so that when you go to buy them, you’ll know exactly what will work best for your needs.


  3. I probably went a little overboard when it came to auxiliary lights but I have to tell you that I’ve used all of them at least once. Some people have laughed at me, but I’m glad I had them added. An abundance is always better than being in need! I’ll have the last laugh.
