Any offroad lights backed with HIDs..I know a set of 7'' offroad lights with built in HID kits. HIDs are typically 3 times brighter than hologen bulbs.

The Daylighters are a good Halogen lights. Remember they are pencil beams and shoot far but not that wide....

I run a single pencil (Baja Designs La Paz 9", see below ) with a driving beam on either side to make up a system. I'm not racing with this set-up but it works very well and provides a lot of light overall and is still hard to overdrive...

Of course HID's are the snizzle, but at $500-$600 per light not too many of us regular guys can afford to drop that much coin into lights...Mine are Halogen also, but I plan on doing HID conversions to all three...

I have those same 7" HID. Bought them direct from CSK. $100 each, that ebay price kinda sucks.
And in the stores, they are $107 a peice.

Another option is to get the $40 HID kit from DDMTuning.com and just swap out the bulbs on some offroad lights..depending how much you spend on the lights it may be cheaper this way.

....Another tip...Run the biggest light you can, everything else being equal, bigger means more light thrown down the road.

Those 7" HID lights from Ebay have been found being sold by Kragen/Checker auto parts for as low as $97 ea...total Chi-one-eise knock-offs, but several guys on RDC have run them on their play-toys and seem happy for the price...

IF you have the cash to spend on lights, you can never go wrong with LightForce. They just release their HID versions.

....Uh....LightForce have been HID for years...So what do they cost?

The HID's are expensive.. You'll drop anywhere from $400-1000 for them depending on which size you want....

But check out the video on this site... How many of the PIAA's or other lights can do that? :lol:

CO-Titan, I have the set of lights you provided a link to in your original post. I bought them at my local Pep Boys part store. I waited around until I had a coupon for 10% off. They do just fine for my needs. I put the switch on the kick panel since I didn't have any other open switch plates and I didn't want to take apart the dash/console and drill new holes.

Little kids like the smiley faces on the front. In the winter I put santa hats on the lights.

Thanks for all the suggestions but HIDs are a little pricey for me right now, so I was wondering if I wanted to get a more wide range light, I should get Fog Lights right?

like these? - SlimLite Fog Light

Fog lights are very short range. Are you sure you want that? Check out the different types of lights on the KC HiLites web page.
