Oh and I am going to be retroing my fogs as well now haha
My lightbar will be back from the paint shop tomorrow(got it color matched) and I will be going crazy to get lights for it. I also finished painting my sliders so I'm going to be busy with all that and work tomorrow. Pics will be up tomorrow(or possibly the next day)
It depends on what you do with your truck, what kind of light output do you need? If you're running open trails at speed, you want light pretty far out and you'll probably turn the lights on and leave them on so a long range HID would be a good choice. If you're going to use them on the road and will be turning them on and off as traffic approaches, then a halogen might be a better choice. With the higher mounting point (light bar), I've found that fog pattern lights aren't very effective so I'd stick with All-Terrain Pattern, Driving or Spot pattern.
As far as brands, the cheapest solution for HIDs is to retrofit a set of Hella 500 or 700's. There are a few threads on how to do so. Otherwise, there are Group Buys on Kragen lights that come and go, Lightforce seems pretty indestructable and I'm running PIAA lights. I like the PIAAs but their customer service is horrible at best and some of the guys who wheel their truck harder have found that the PIAAs fail by letting water in the housing, burning out the bulb or cracking the glass lens.
