    Started with the pair of Kragen Euro Beam HIDs (they are excellent lights for illumination), but they both broke (the plastic housings cracked during one Baja trip).

    Then I got a pair of Hella 4000 METAL pencil beams (100 watt halogen)...

    Then I modified my light bar to fit all 4 lights... we fixed the plastic Kragens with figerglass!


    Stock High Beams:
