    If it were ME, I'd go with a pair of LF 170s because you can adjust them to have a spot, wide, or euro beam pattern. And of course they are tough as nails. They are spendy but you get what you pay for IMO.

    as someone mentioned before, look into LED bars as well. I just put a 21'' bar on my front bumper and it would work great if you're just trying to light up a camp site. Hell, even two 6'' bars mounted higher up are great flood lights for that as well.

    You don't need to buy a rigid bar. I wish I could afford one though. Blitzpro makes a very affordable product. That's what I have and I'm happy with them :)

    well after many days of research i finally made a decision and went with 2 hella 4000's, eventually going to get 2 more... and maybe one day upgrade to HID.. but as for now these should do very nicely. Cant wait for my lights and light bar to come in!!! plus color matched the chrome on my grill today, lots of changes coming!

    Hella FF500s are about $70.00 a pair, DDM (or another) 55watt HIDs $35.00ish. So, for $200.00 and change you can go with four pretty bad-ass lights. Then spend the $300.00 on whatever. The HID conversion is a can of corn, (search this forum). I've had a pair for years, and no nothing inside of them. Now that being said I'm not a mudder, just light to mild trails, (PreRunner).
