Default Brightest Precedent Headlights?

I'm doing some upgrades to one of my carts, 05 Precedent. The standard headlights that have been on it for years don't put out enough light. I upgraded the bulbs a few years ago but definitely need something brighter. Anyone have suggestions?

I picked up a LED replacement light like this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Club-Car-Pre...24a24a&vxp=mtr
and it is plenty bright. I was able to find just the light with harness (no bumper) but didn't see the one like mine doing a quick search. I used the cart this weekend at a local campground and had quite a few comments about how bright it is. It might be just a little too bright. There is a thread in the Club Car section where I posted pics here:LED conversion for Precedent

Get a Cree light bar you won't be disappointed at all. I have one that is 72 watts 12" long and it like driving in the day. I paid $90.00 for it last year but ebay has them for $55.00 now. Keep in mind this sucker is bright.

Actually I mounted it behind my brush guard. I drilled two holes through my front bumper and then drilled a third hole for the wire to feed through. If you look at my profile and look under my pictures I have a picture of it. Or you can mount it to your brush guard if you have one.

I have a theory and I'd like to hear from anybody pro or con. I believe that the lights on a Precedent are mounted to low with no adjustment. All the light is directed onto the ground in front of the vehicle. Has anybody overcome this problem. I am just about ready to order a phantom body kit just to raise the headlights higher.

I agree with the height theory, but also being side by side in the center doesn't help them either.

That's why I have my light bar higher.

Does anyone know the lumens output rating on the LED Headlight Bar upgrade? If it's anywhere near 3000 lumens or more seems like it would be a decent upgrade from the stock one. For sure this 72 watt LED at 5000+ lumens is enough for anyone. I have an 8" ~3000 lumens one on my riding mower and it's killer. I can't find the wattage and lumens rating anywhere on this thing..... And mymadjax doesn't list it on there site so I guess it's after-after market - lol
