TL;DR

baja designs. Xl pro’s. If you need a guy reach out to mike Oggie at offroad warehouse. He’s on FB as well. Only suckers pay MSRP. Baja designs sports suck. Skip those. Go pro. Or xl80’s.
Nice lights, in the winter it is dark at 4pm here. I use lights more for work than off road. In the summer it stays light till almost 11pm, not much need then.

Does anyone have Squadron Pros? My nicest lights are some older Morimoto 4Bangers which I'm sure are very dated at this point. I found a deal on some amber combo Squadron Pros ($270 instead of $370), but I don't wanna be disappointed...
Edit-- I've hit a few deer before on the highway, it'd be nice to avoid that via some quality lights; these aren't just for overland points!

I bit the bullet on the Squadron Pro combo beam like @Itaro recommended. They are well worth the cost. I am happy with my purchase, and most of the cheap asses I know that have the same lights are very happy and impressed with the quality of the light. They are bright enough to handle most of the night driving I do (offroad and on-road).

I have them and they’re great. Combo pattern. Not amber tho so I don’t know how that’ll be but they’re worth every penny

So just for shits… I bought these cheap lights. GreceYou 2pcs 50w they aren’t the worst thing. However they are cheap so you get what you get. The reflectors didn’t look too bad (no good way to verify the geometry), but the output was just mediocre. So I swapped the LED’s for CREE and we’ll I might actually be getting the values they advertise. Now with more light… the pattern is shit - great as floods but the spot doesn’t exist.

my point… maybe none. However if you have some time to screw around with cheap lights you could stumble on one worth modding.
