    I just got a new 12 DLCB SB TX TRD, purchased a new pre-runner bar for it. To be honest I have no idea or where to start looking for lights for it. I would appreciate any recommendations that you guys might have for some mid-priced driving lights.

    I have KC Daylighters on mine. They have good throw with a fairly yellow beam. If I had it to do over again I'd probably spend a few hundred more and get an LED light bar or Lightforces. The Daylighters are a lot of light for the $130 I spent though.

    I don't want to spend more than $200, but if need be I can push it to $300.

    There's a lot of Hella lights in that price range.

    Here's a link on how to convert the Hella 700ff to HID:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/lighting/60590-hella-700ff-hid-conversion.html

    And if the 700ff series is too big for your application there's alway the 500ff which I think runs under $100 a pair. Here's a link to the 500 for sale:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001TWD5GY

    And the HID kit will run you under $50 in most cases. Do you have a pic of the bar you're mounting these on?

    the hella 4000's are very reasonable as well, very good light for the money, granted it is halogen but for me it exceeds my needs and if i were to spend the money on HID's i feel that i would not be utilizing their full potential, but that is just me, you have to first determine what you are using these for....looks/funtion or bombing through baja.....

    Hella 4000's. Picked up a used set for 200 and buy an HID kit for 40-50 bucks.
    Ridiculously bright
