    Light Farce you mean?
    Lights that react poorly to UV since they changed the composite nearly a decade ago.
    Or the LED hybrids that go yellow very quickly?

    The FYRLYT guys are the former Design Engineer, Marketing and CEO of LF. There are lots of reasons they left. Quality is one of them.

    Enjoy your Cibies.

    I threw a set out years ago when the reflectors rotted. Same with IPF, Hella and a few othersÖ all failed. Happens to them all at some point in some way.

    Best part of the current lights is theyíre fully rebuildable, fully supported, and Aussie made.

    Just had David call from FYRLYT.

    New set of lenses and one reflector are in the mail.

    He also gave instructions on the best way to stick the lens that has separated back together.

    Whilst Iíve had some lens issue over the years the back up support from FYRLYT is pretty damn good.

    Still deciding which way weíll go for lighting on the defer for the trip....any round type light will disrupt air flow for the cooling system.

    I monitor our Defender pretty tightly.
    The winch, led bar etc seem to have little impact on the TDCI. Even under the most arduous conditions.

    4x4 Products | High Performance LED Driving Lights | Great Whites

    I have a couple of the smaller Great White spot lights, the single chip on board (C.O.B.) type, as I don't like the multiple LED's in a spottie, makes it look like spider's/flies eyes, of course this doesn't apply to a light bar, of which they do a few. They do seem to give off a white light that can bounce back of road signs as mentioned in this thread, but I mostly use them out in the country where signs are few and far between.

    How do you go with CRIÖ I find my light bar useful in the slow stuff where I have time to pick off the fauna from the flora. At pace though the glare really makes discerning plant or animal a bit more difficult

    Regarding CRI (Colour Rendering Index) I can't say I notice a difference, but my eyes are funny, I actually think I can see better in daylight without sunglasses, the sunnies I have are a very light tint. Strangely I think the spotties seem to scare the animals off, as before fitting them I had a few close calls, a couple of cows and and kangaroos, one roo jumped out so close in front of the D3 that it's tail hit the passenger headlight and stopped the HID lamp working! I don't find the LED's glare unless they have something to reflect off, so definitely road signs, and maybe rain/wet roads.

    All excited this morning to fit the new lenses and reflector.....only to find the temporary lens is cracked (sure it an older one that I had kept from when I received replacements prior, might have been a random stone although Ute hasnít left brisbane while waiting for new lenses to arrive). You can still see the damage reflector.



    I guess while FYRLYT continue to support their product at no cost to me Iíll keep using them. How many lenses should I carry for our trip given these fail often enough driving on the black top.

    Sadly once the support stops Iíll change lights. Not sure what to as I donít like LEDís.

    Based on my experience across three sets Iím not sure Iíd invest the dollars out of my own pocket FYRLYT Driving light review
