LED off road lights vs KC Dayliters

Hi,
Has anyone compared these LED lights to the original style KC off road lights. One is measured in lumens and one is measured in candlepower and these 2 measurements are totally different.

Many of these LED light bars have both spot and flood lights in a unit. They are more money than your normal off road lights but if they are brighter and last much longer it may be worth the added cost. They say these LED bulbs can last 50,000 hours.

Thanks!

Mike can you put just the flood lights on or just the spot lights on? Did it come with a harness?

If you get a light bar with 2 different types of lighting in it, can you turn either one on by itself or must the whole light bar be on?

Well... i a lil bit.. .its not just LED's you need to worry about.. they may all have the same LED's but what about the actual bar itself? or the wiring? .. im a big believer that you get what you pay for... im not saying go and buy a Rigid light because i feel they are overpriced.. .

if it were me i would buy bulldog lighting because not only is the price cheaper than Rigids but they are actually made in the USA...
