Advice on lighting needed

whats a good brand of auxillary lights? Hella? I want to mount a couple on my front bumper. Any advice? They are more for looks than actual lighting. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have PIAA 520s. But if they are mainly for looks, what does it matter how well they work?

You get what you think looks best on your truck. Save some cash and use it on other mods.

If they are solely for looks, go with something by Piaa. A coworker had 4 of them on a lightbar on the front of his lifted Cummins 2500 HD Dodge Ram. We swapped trucks for a weekend and I must admit they looked great, but only gave the usable light equivalent of a couple of candles compared to any Hella product I've owned. I don't know if they were the 520 or 525 series - but they looked pretty good.



EDIT: Added Pics

You don't get laughed at for being a poser? Couldn't help it.

This pic is a couple of years old and pre exists my colored grill and BHLM - but it'll serve the purpose. If I had to do it again, I'd probably go with the N Fab bar as the KC limits your approach angle somewhat.
