Our shock mounted lights began with the famous KC Daylighter that we invented and patented in 1972. Not only does the Daylighter use a heavy-duty rubber gasket (bulb holder) that isolates the lens, reflector, and bulb from the metal housing and elements of weather, but it also includes our patented shock mounting system. The KC HiLiTES shock mounting system was developed as a way to isolate the lamp unit from the mounting bracket or surface to which the light is mounted. This system successfully reduces lamp failure due to vibration and has been proven through the extremes of off road racing. Now, the shock mount system has been updated from the original to require no extra drilling.
Since 1970, KC HiLiTES has designed and manufactured premium performance lighting products for off-road vehicles. The company began in a Saugus, California garage and first made an impact with its Daylighters that instantly caught on with campers and off-roaders. After rapid growth, KC HiLiTES met the rapid demand for its product line and innovations included the patented isolated rubber mount and rubber reflector ring for the Daylighter and in the 1990s the company pioneered products employing HID technology. Whether you're looking to address LED, HID and halogen lighting needs, KC HiLiTES produces products that suit a wide range of applications for Jeeps. Shop KC HiLites Now
