    Check out Vision X's LED. They offer smaller LED lights instead of there full blown light bars. One or two should be plenty bright. If your on a budget check out harbor freight tools and get two of their round flood lights for like 12 bucks total.

    hmm, my friend put some of those cheap lights on the front of his truck and after he fried all the wires I took them and re-wired them. They work great for me. They're under my bed and have been underwater, covered in mud, snow and pelted with rocks...they're still going strong. :notsure:

    I ran a single rectangle light from harbor freight. i opend it up and cut off the little black "reflector" blocking the bulb and it made it much brighter. It also had a rubber seal that kept water out of it. I never had water issues with mine, it was very bright, and cost like 12 bucks.
