Hella lighting

Anyone have any pictures of a pair of 500FF's and 700FF's on a N-Fab or any light bar for that matter.
Looking to buy cheap, and convert to HID like everyone else.

Well, if you go to this thread, after about page 13 or so, you will see people with their bars mounted and you could look in those member's gallery for more pics or PM them with questions. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/bay...light-bar.html
Other than that I would suggest pumping "Hella 500" "Hella 700" "BAMF Lightbar" and "HID covnversion" individually into the search function on this website and I'm sure you will find lots of information on these topics.

Thanks. Been searching the shit out of it on here, google, etc. But can't seem to find a single picture of a both sets mounted. And a BAMF behind the grill bar is not the case here. Guess I wasn't clear enough with stating N-Fab bar or any bar. My bad. ..moving on.
Any photoslop people out there even? Trying to get some perspective on the sizing.

For sure man! That would be rad. Post it up.
I doubt you and I are the only 2 ppl on here to think of staggered sized driving lights. I was thinking of going with a pair of LightForce 170's and the 500's. But I don't know if the bang for buck is there with LF. Considering how cheap Hella's can be.

Makes sense.....I've got LF genesis spot beams in the center 2 tabs, and cheap ass kragen hid/red rings on the outer 2 tabs of my avid light bar.

The genesis shine well beyond anything I ever expected, and the kragens are just to fill the left/right areas.

On long dim lit desolate roads where cows, deer,coyotes, etc are a danger I can light things up ridiculously far away, and also have the left/right of the roads lit up well beyond the shoulder so I can see any of these animals that may be wandering in the fields and could pose a danger by running.....works great when there's no fences seperating pastures and fields from the road.

I've heard the hellas are bright.....then I asked how far they throw (non retrofitted) and I was told "as far as my high beams"...... I wanted something that throws sunlight much further than my highbeams, otherwise it just didn't fit the bill for me since........I already have highbeams

Lightforce can take a ton of abuse.....proof is all over the net, just google "lightforce torture test"

Those LF's are about the same dimensions as the Hella 700ff's right?

To the OP here's the pics, the one's in the middle are not Hella 700's but they are the same size and design





They are not HID's they are all 130W KC bulbs, the two on the sides are not pointed directly ahead which is why they look dimmer

Almost exactly what I was trying to find!! Just the inner 2 lights being 700FF's. Which is where I am at so far. The 500FF's on order. Will likely convert to HID in the future.
Thanks for all the posts gents. Some good ideas in here too.

The LF Genesis are 210mm 8" lights. Hella 500 series are a hair over 6" and NOT comparable in any way. The Genesis are lighter, brighter, tougher, and waterproof. Hellas have open holes to let water and contamination in... they are cheap lights. You can fit an HID retro INSIDE the Genesis body too. Genesis are better than LF Blitz 170 as well, just not adjustable like the 170. The Hella 700 are 7" lights. The larger the reflector, the mire light you can capture and project forward.
