Good lights to buy

Does anyone have any suggestions on what kind of good off road lights I should get?

Looks wise.....do you like the old school look of the round lights or the new age look of LED bars (long rectangles & small squares)?

I like old school but wouldn't mind getting both one day but I'm mostly looking for something I could mount on my stock bumper

Yea i have seen a few mount them to the stock bumper. Just drill a couple holes. Forgot which guy it was that did that..

FF is for a the beam pattern. there are 3 for the 500s. The Euro driving beams. Fogs and then the hybrid which i believe is the ff. Someone will correct me on that if im backwards.

Either way if you HID them which i strongly recommend cause they aren't that great with the stock halogen bulb it won't matter. They will be just stupid awesome bright no matter what.

So would fogs be brighter?

And was it hard to hid them?

Same process

Fogs would not be brighter. They have a lens that diffuses light more to put more light wider and indirectly as possible in front of the truck.

Driving lights form a high intensity spot light for long range.

Why the hybrids are cool cause they do a bit of both.
Ok cool

As long as I can mount them to my bumper then It'll work out good!

Hey another quick question do they make right below the windshield light mounts like they make on jeeps for our trucks

Lightforce x2. 500's converted to HID's are bright but when you are turning them on and off constantly because of traffic...do the HID's hold up as well as the halogen? Lightforce 170's are bright as shit. It is impossible to outrun the lightforce 170's. They throw a beam of light 300+ yards down the road...not even an exaggeration. They also make a size smaller, and larger.
