    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.

    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.
