    I have been shopping around for offroad lights. The choices that I have come across have been the traditional KS, PIAA, Lightforce etc. Today I stopped in to my local automotive electrical shop that specializes in emergency vehicle lighting. I inquired about any type of offroad lighting that they carry or might suggest. I was shown a Whelen PAR36 white LED worklight. It was 4" in diameter with a silver aluminum housing. It also comes with a black housing. The salesman hooked up the light to a battery and I was quite impressed. About 5400K white. I only wished it was dark outside. Has anybody seen LED driving or offroad lights?

    LED sucks in dust, fog, and rain they don't penetrate like a traditional halogen, If you get LED or HID i would suggest put a yellow tint on them Not to dark of a yellow but enough to allow it to penetrate through dust, fog and rain.
