go for the regular 500 or 500ff but not black magic. you will have a very hard time trying to convert the black magics to hid, but the regular ones are easy and you can just buy these hella shieldz tints or laminex tints

doesnt matter who is doing the conversion. the shieldz are basically a sticker you stick on the front of the light. its tint.

edit: never mind. I didnt notice the black magics are converted to hid too. Definitely get the black magics. lol

is it more difficult to convert the black magics to hid than the regular 500 or 500ff?

i have the black magics and have no complaints...much more rugged than the 500ff's, and they look much cleaner on my black truck

I have rallye 1000 black magics....they are super bright and they are a real true white instead of the yellow tint white that come from the 500s. I love them. expensive though

Just my opinion...but after all that is what you asked for right?

Go with some Rigid Industries D2 LED lights. No converting, no running wires for ballasts, no warm up time, no bulbs burning out or ballasts not working, and they are MUCH stronger. They will also light up way more area in front of you than Hellas. Hellas will reach out a little further but they wont even compare up close. Plus they are much more efficient and also smaller to mount behind the grille. Oh, and did I mention...they are just BADASS!! haha

I know they are pricey, but remember, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
