    For the extreme cheapo lights, Harbor Freight. They have a sale right now for a pair of 55w lights for $7.99. And they have 5" round offroad lights for $11.99 each. I'm almost tempted to get some. If that's too cheap and you want something better, I saw a 4 pack of 100w 6" stainless steel lights for $125 from Summit, part num. SUM-G6280K4.

    yeap, i got me a roll bar for 40$ and the lights were 10$ a peice at k-mart that was closeing, so yea the roll bar does add person'a to the truck. and the walmart ones work great, but rust up if you dont wax them or preserve their finish, but they work very well. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You can go to Tractor Supply Company and get tractor lights for cheap - they are the same as offroad lights and have a sturdy plastic housing insetad of a chrome one.

    Cheap.

    clearence isle at any department store, tractor supplies are good, garage sales if you see from other truck stuff, I've even seen them in property auctions when they auction off garage/barn items.
    I picked up a complete 1/2" craftsmen tool set plus 1/4" wratchet and some metric sockets for $17 in a box deal! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I also got those tiny little eletrical connection wrenches, craftsmen, for $6

    If you're gonna go cheap, skip the chrome ones. The road salt in your part of the world will rust them out in no time. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif I'd either look for some painted ones (and then scuff them and add another layer of Rustoleum for better rust proofing) or some with a plastic housing.

    in the 4wheel parts offroad adventures magazine, they are offering a pair of 8" 130 watt lights, with the wiring harness and relay for $65. they come with a black housing, and a set of plastick light covers. i've got a set on the front of my K5, they work awesome, and are really bright.
