    Right now I'm running two hella 500ffs behind my grille that have been changed to 55w 8000k HIDs, I have a buyer lined but not sure if I should keep them or sell them and get a 20" light bar and put it behind my grille

    How it looks now:

    light bar for sure. I had 4-Hella 500s and the difference between them and my 30" light bar is night and day...literally. Light bar all the way!

    Lift, 32" Duratracs, sliders, LED light bar, interior LEDs, sweet tunes & sub, OBA, sliders, TRD 16" 6 spoke wheels, CB, HID spotlights, electrical mods, etc.
    they are different. HID will give you more throw but lightbar will be brighter and more spread

    Sold the HIDs for 130, just bought a 20" tuff led light bar for 157. I'll post pics, It should be delivered tomorrow and I'll install it right away
