    Like the title says. Also, how bright are they and if you don't mind sharing, what did you pay for them and installation?

    I have 4 Piaa 80 Racing Series off road lights. They have both a high and low beam on them. I bought and installed them originally on my 97' Tacoma back in 98' I think. I don't remember what I originally paid for them because I did a bunch of stuff to my truck at once back then. Going off of memory, the low beams I think are 90 watts and the high beams are 150 watts. My friends refer to them as my portable daylight. They were they one thing I kept from my 97' and when I bought my 07' Tacoma, they were the first things I put on the truck to have a little piece of my old one always with my new one.

    Here are some pictures of them on my old truck and my new truck.

    I thought the Genesis were only HID models. Have you ever compared them to standard Blitz 240's? I used to have a pair of those, so I am just curious.

    Lightforce doesn't do a whole lot for curvy roads (at least the Blitz do not), but they are outstanding for throwing a long-range beam.

    I'm running 4 - PIAA 520 driving lights. First pair cost me over $300 and free install (myself). I got lucky with the second pair and found just the lamps on amazon for $100 and did my own wiring. Switches, relays, wire loom and wiring were all extra.

    Running a Craigslist special, 20 dollars for all four lights! :eek: And they're very bright!

    They serve my needs, eventually I'd like to upgrade to an HID.

    not the best pic, but lightforce 170 strikers, hella 500ff's (daylighter covers were a joke, someone wanted me to put them on my truck) which are in the process of HID conversion, hence covered. Lightforces were ~273 w/wiring harness from sierra expeditions, hellas were 55/set w/ wiring on fleabay. I installed myself, there's nothing to it
