    Why did you pick PIAA if you don't have a specific model or type of light in mind? Just wondering why PIAA... as I like off road lights...

    Looked at some of the light reviews and PIAA seem to get some favorable rating's.Don't want anything to small,size wise.I looked at all the models but want to pick a nice pair of driving lights and fog.Maybe some might be better than the others as far as durability.
    Thank's,
    Jason

    Okay, but might as well check other brands, too... My friend has PIAAs and loves his (but he IS a Chevy truck owner)...

    Other popular lights include models by Hella, KC, Soltek (Baja Designs)... of course these are all built for off road racing, which means they are tough!

    There is HID and now LED lights!

    I,m running Piaa 580,s behind my grill and Piaa 510,s Plasma ion yellow in my Allpro bumper and love both of them. I also run a set of Hella 500 on my pro rack for back-up lights. the hella,s are good lights but the Piaa,s are made so much better, also the Hella wiring harness sucks compared to the Piaa,s harness...JMO :D:D

    ^ Looks awesome.

    I just received my PIAA 520 ATP lights and I'm gonna mount mine similar to yours behind my Grillcraft. Very high quality lights and made in Japan to boot. Idk about the other brands but the PIAAs can be mounted upside-down, just gotta turn the lens, and the beam pattern is good to go.
