Both are high quality lights, depends on what you want them for. I prefer IPF, IMO they have better bulbs.

Love my IPF 960's - best investment for the money! Very bright white!

You can do two things - buy a s***load a cheapass lights and tax your alternator...

Or buy one set of really good lights!

Buy the IPF 960's !

I live deep in the Reservation where no street lights penetrate - the 960's have saved my ass from horses/sheep/cows...many a time - and the occasional skinwalker....

A skinwalker is a Navajo Medicine man that has gone to the darkside - black magic - they have to kill a relatives child then they bathe in blood...to become a shapeshifter - usually in the form of a wolf...and believe me - they exist!

Now, courtesy of NorcalDoug, Lightforce is in the decision mix. They look pretty darn nice...they seem to be the only lighting company to actually show a light pattern AND light distance/projection...and lifetime warranty. Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!

Lightforce

I haven't had a chance to try my LF 240s on the trail yet, but I can tell you they are BRIGHT! I like the plastic bodies, the focusable beams, and the breather set up!

Australia 4WD Monthly did a shoot out a year or two ago with a bunch of off road lights. It was a neat and pretty scientific test. The Lightforce 240s whooped on the competion. Including IPF, KC, Hella, Cibie and more...

I agree on the Lightforce 240's they are super bright but way to big, sold mine for a pair of IPF J01s almost as much light and they don't stick out as much.

I remember those things from SNT last year. Huge, but made night look like day big time!

Are you talking about the ones that David had, his were super bright. I think they were IPF HID, those are nice but very expensive think like $1100
