What to Look Out for When Buying Ford Bronco Bumper Lights?
Bumper Light Bars vs Grille Light Bars
Ford Bronco bumper light bars are versatile and customizable, allowing you to add extra illumination to the front or rear bumper of your Bronco.
They provide powerful and wide-angle lighting, enhancing visibility on and off the road.
On the other hand, grille light bars offer a sleek and integrated lighting solution that seamlessly blends with the front fascia (no rear grille light bars) of your vehicle.
They provide a more subtle and stealthy lighting setup, focusing the light forward for long-distance illumination.
Grille light bars complement the overall design of your Bronco while providing enhanced visibility.
In general, grille light bars are more seamless and cleaner-looking while bumper light bars do give you more options to choose from.
Brightness and Light Pattern
It's essential to find a balance between brightness and legal compliance, ensuring that the chosen lights meet the regulations specified by your local transportation authority.
Additionally, consider your specific needs for different lighting applications, such as off-road adventures or on-road visibility, and whether those are in foggy and low-light conditions.
Light pattern refers to how the emitted light is distributed. Fog lights offer a wide, spread-out beam, making them suitable for cutting through fog while spotlights are designed to cover a longer distance with a much narrower beam.
Choosing the appropriate light pattern depends on the specific use case and desired lighting coverage for your Ford Bronco,
If you want more nearby visibility while driving slowly, consider buying shorter, wider light patterns with even light distribution.
Different states have different regulations concerning aftermarket lighting fixtures on a car.
Be sure to double-check what is allowed and what is not allowed in your state as not doing so can get you fined while also having to remove your lights which is double the cost.
Either way, make sure that your lights are always properly adjusted and secured and that they aren’t blocked by other components on your Bronco.
LED vs Xenon vs Halogen
LED lights are energy-efficient, the brightest, and have a very long lifespan that does not require you to change light bulbs.
They are also extremely customizable and can have smart functionality that allows you to change the color of the lights at your heart’s desire.
Xenon lights provide a bright, white output with longer beam reach, while Halogen lights are affordable but have a shorter lifespan
In most cases, LED lights will always be your best choice, but if you want affordability, easy replacements, and a different look, Xenons should also be considered.
Halogen lights are simply too weak of a technology to even be comparable to Xenon or LED lights.
