Gives customers a quick understanding of the BD Lighting Systems products

SAN MARCOS, Calif. – Baja Designs now offers an educational Lighting Zone chart for consumers to gain a better understanding of how to build a lighting package for their vehicle.

The Lighting Zone chart, from “The Scientists of Lighting”, provides a colorful graphic illustration of each of the primary zones an off-road enthusiast should account for. The informative chart covers every area, from the Driving/Combo (Zone 3), applicable to any off-road enthusiast, to the Racer Edition (Zone 5) that is utilized exclusively by those traveling above 100mph. This simple illustration allows users to visualize each area that is most important to their style of driving, and make an educated decision on how to select the optimum lighting package.

Baja Designs’ Lighting Zone chart illustrates how each zone interacts with one another to distribute light to the front, side and rear of the vehicle. The chart shows the comparative effectiveness of each zone and how an adjacent zone will overlap to achieve the most desirable lighting pattern distribution.

Baja Designs’ Lighting Zone charts can be viewed on the company’s website at Two versions are available – one for the light truck/SUV/UTV market, and a second for the motorcycle/ATV market.

All Baja Designs lighting systems are designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. Baja Designs offers a 30 day, Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee and Limited Lifetime Warranty on all LED products.

Lighting Zone: Off Road Enthusiast

These zones have been designed by Baja Designs: The Scientists of Lighting.

Zone 1 – Dust/Fog: This zone illuminates the area directly in front of the vehicle.  Mounting these lights low on the bumper eliminates glare from dust and fog.

Zone 2 – Cornering: This zone provides cornering light which is necessary to drive comfortably at speed.  By toeing these lights out 10°-15°a smooth field of light is achieved, eliminating the feeling of tunnel vision.

Zone 3 – Driving Combo: This zone is your primary driving light.  These lights are mounted in the middle of the front bumper to avoid glare off of the hood or from dust and fog in front of the vehicle. 

Zone 4 – Spot: This zone is your first level of long distance lighting. Lights intended for this zone will give you the distance needed to travel at speed.  Combined with zone two lighting, a smooth transition is achieved creating less stress on your eyes.

Zone 5 – Racer Edition Spot: This zone is necessary for triple digit speeds or wanting to see miles down the road. This is the only forward projection pattern we recommend mounting along your roofline.

Zone 6 – Dome Lighting: This zone is used for wheel well lighting.  This light is perfect for truck, jeep, buggy and UTV applications. 

Zone 7 – Flood: Excellent work light or “scene light” with an extremely smooth 60° pattern.  This pattern is not suitable for forward projection applications.

Zone 8 – Backup Lighting: This zone illuminates the area directly behind the rear of the vehicle.  It is recommended that these lights be mounted on your rear bumper or cargo rack.
