    So, I'm in the process of trying to determine the best "axillary" light set up I should get. I say "axillary" instead of Off-road, because I don't use my baby Taco for off-roading yet...and probably won't for some years. I'm more concerned with having enough light for those times when municiple lighting will not be available i.e. emergencies, natural disasters, etc.

    I have the OEM driving lights, but want to know what the best urban set up would be that would also be effective for more rural situations.

    I'm currently thinking of two floods combined with two long-range lights. What do you guys think? What do you folks have in your set up? What would you have done differently if you did it over again? Thanks in advance.

    Cheers,
    Mickey

    If you're just using them for more light in emergency situations, get all floods.

    for city type driving I would say just floods. Ive got 4 pencil beams on mine and going down gravel roads at 50+ at night they are a must, being able to see whats up ahead before you get there.
    in your case I would sugest 2 floods and maybe euro stlye, that way you get more right up close and more light where your normal headlights are.

    Thanks for the insight/suggestions everyone. I think I'm gonna go with the best of both worlds... 2 floods and 2 long range.
