    Hey, I was wondering what some good off-road lights, I was thinking either explorer pro comp, PIAA, or maybe hella. Although im leaning towards the pro comp because they are cheaper. How are they for strongness? Thanks

    KC seem to be the defacto standard

    I have a set I got with my axles.... along with a cheap butterfly knife I already broke and some other goofy [darn]

    I'm sure they'll work great

    i bought some "blazer tech" lights at big lots for 15 bucks once.. put them on my 4runner when i had it.. they were as bright as KC Daylighters, smaller and covered a wide area, when combined with the high beams, i could see EVERYTHING on the trail at night.. i have at least one set in the garage right now, waiting for my next truck..

    personally I got 4 of the procomp 130s, there a dual pattern driving/flood. I prefer this over the Daylighters I once had as the spot lights didnt give me enough light directly in front of me to see what i was doing/avoid obsticals. sofar the 4 130s have been my fav.

    I swear by the KC lights, or atleast the bulbs!! I usually look around for cheap housings junk yards, other members. And buy the good KC bulbs, the 150watt, 365,000 candlepower bulbs at put them in whatever housings I have, including the "cop style" spot lights. The bulbs are 18.00 each.

    I am using the procomps, 2 front/2 rear, they are great, cheap and havent had any probs with them even when submerging them when launching my boat. But they are great for setting up camp and such and nice on the trails/highway /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I just got the pro comps like 2 weeks ago, They are pretty bright, not as much as I expected. For the price I am pleased with the performance. Probably won't use them that much. For "strongness" They seem to be built well and the mounting hardware is strong and stable. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    what size of bulbs are the 150w.? 6" sealed or something like a H4? harbor freight has a housing for like 9 bucks with a 6" light would this maybe work?

    The best off road lights are cheap ones so when you smash them you can afford new ones.

    My idea to protect them.
