There are a lot of led off road driving lights on display in the modification shop. All this seems to indicate that without these lights, off-road vehicles will not be considered. It is true that an off-road vehicle that often travels far needs to be modified by lighting to improve its safety. If you drive an off-road vehicle that only uses the original lights in the dark night, it is running around in the sparsely populated Gobi or the desert, staggering in the dark. Rugged mountain roads or crossing the jungle are unimaginable, and it is not appropriate even to drive on national roads, provincial roads or highways at night. What's more, you may also be affected by severe weather such as dense fog, heavy rain, sand and dust.

Why install additional off-road vehicle lights instead of retrofitting the original vehicle lights?

In fact, it's very simple. First of all, there is little room for retrofitting the original car lights. At present, the original car lights are modified by various methods to increase the brightness, such as using brightening lines, increasing the wattage of the bulbs, and increasing the color temperature of the bulbs (change xenon lamps) This method often increases the load on the original vehicle line and increases safety risks.

Secondly, the original car lights are mostly to meet the needs of better-lit urban and suburban roads. If the original car lights are modified to increase the brightness, the use in the city will inevitably affect the sight of others, not only does not improve safety , On the contrary, it seriously affects the driving safety of others. This behavior is far worse than the frequent use of high beams in the city. For off-road vehicles, the additional auxiliary lights are controlled by independent circuits and independent switches, which are only turned on when needed, and do not affect the original vehicle circuit.

The basic classification of lamps

The driving light type is relatively concentrated, the irradiation distance is long, and there is a certain amount of floodlight that can take into account the lighting at close distances. This is our first choice for auxiliary lamps installed on the front bumper of the car. It is also the main lighting used. The basic principle of installing front bumper lamps is not to affect the driver’s line of sight. The auxiliary lamps installed on the same horizontal line as the original car lamps are more beautiful and durable.

Spotlights, also known as spotlights, have very concentrated beams, longer illuminating distances, and very little floodlight. They are very suitable for installation on the roof rack. When installing, be very careful that the upper edge of the lamp cannot exceed the extension of the windshield glass, so as to avoid reflections on the hood and even cause reflections on the windshield, which constitutes a great obstacle to safe driving. This is why you should choose spotlights on the luggage rack.

Don't blindly pursue high-power car lights, reasonable matching is the best!

The installation process of auxiliary lamps is relatively strict, and it is generally recommended to choose a relatively professional modification shop. At the same time, the owners themselves must carefully supervise the construction and be familiar with the wiring and switch positions. First of all, it is necessary to judge how many extra lamps can be loaded by the data provided by the vehicle generator, so as to avoid the situation of insufficient power supply from the generator, and rationally choose a combination of lamps with appropriate power.
