    the best selection can prolly be found at a truck stop such as Flying J's or Pilot..

    LED style will be more rugged since there is no actual light bulb to blow from the shock of hard hits/landings, offers less amperage draw on the electrical system but...

    an incandescent style will tend to be brighter and will have a better and more focused light pattern through the dust offering greater distance from which it can be seen.

    Always the fix with 100w bulbs, make sure you up grade your wirings for 100 watters. Im using a single Harbor Freight amber fog light as my dust lamp. When Money comes around I will be getting some Hella 550 amber.

    Nice. Well I know what they are/what they look like, but I dont know what 100W looks like in action. Not sure if its as bright as Id like it. Where'd you get the bar? Let me guess...you made that too?

    just as whatthepho suggested...upgrade to a 100w bulb and re-wire using thicker wire so you don't short anything out..add a rely switch as well. the stock wires on any cheapy light that's converted to a 100w bulb will suck up more amps..the stock wires will not handle the added amps and will melt the power wire, and cause a short somewhere..that situation can start a vehicle fire.

    any auto part store will have a selection as well..look in the trailer section
