White. I have BD lights on my truck, love them. I run in dust and rain, If I want yellow for vision, I put on yellow glasses. Mine are slaved to my high beams, when I turn off the highs the LEDs shut off too. Mount them below the hood, if you don't they will light up the windshield and hood.

If you're going with Baja Design lights, you can clear, solid and amber/yellow lens covers, so if you get the whites, and want amber, just put the amber/yellow lens covers over. Baja Designs also offers to change out the optics (main lens) so you can switch to amber main lens at a different time.

I personally went with white on all my baja design lights and got the clear and yellow covers for my ditch lights, and clear covers for my roof light bar.

For ditch lights I would say clear, if you were mounting them lower on the bumper amber might be beneficial (rain/snow/dust/fog).

I have the white with the yellow covers. I would say the covers hold condensation and it reduces the amount of light output significantly if you don’t remove the covers and clear the condensation.

I agree with the rest of the guys. Go with the white and run covers when needed for foul weather.
