I've got Piaa 520 Driving lights and they're decent... I think the KC long range lights illuminate better from what i've seen. I got the Piaa's pretty much on impulse though cuz a local shop had them in stock

From what I hear those Kragen ones are worth the money. They are bright and are pretty solid. Search for them on Pirate 4x4 theres some talk about them.
