LED rock lights

Maybe a stupid question or might not be as I cant find any real reviews. In the prcess of building my TJ (the usual BS) thought I would also upgrade a few other things as its down. Looking at replacing my old ass driving lights that I use as rock lights. Was looking at the Ruff Stuff 7/16 Leds and noticed that they have a 250 lumins and 800 lumins with a big price difference. What is everyone running these days?

and mounted them under my rig. They have been underwater and still work after a few years. Total cost was about $20.00

I use 4 these cheap LED strips from Walmart: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Alpena-77...Strip/49963960

They have lasted for 4 years on my rock buggy, even in wet conditions. They draw very little amps and are 3 times brighter than the expensive LED lights on my Jeep that I bought from Genright.

I should have thought about using those as I bought a 12' roll and made my interior light with those on my camping trailer.

Thanks guys!

I've been running the LUX lights on my Jeep for a few years. Over time their designs have changed making them better while also bringing down the price. Still on the higher end, but I'd say its worth it.

In all seriousness, I never spent too much on rock lights and usually ebay is a good source. I've done rigs as cheap as $5-10 for white chinese LED lights. But these seem like a decent deal for the non DIY guy. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F274032098068
