  2. What are they made of? They look composite, that is a good thing in my opinion. I have 6" KC Daylighters and have replaced 3 of them with no-name ones in the past 3 or 4 years because of abuse or rust. A sturdy composite light would be great. The best lights I have are my two UNITY spotlights. They both have worked great and haven't rusted and they are moveable. The othes serve there purpose by looking good !!lol

    This is from Warn:
    An internal light frame protects the lamp and the body is impact resistant polycarbonate. The lamp has heat and weather resistant EPT materials to seal out water.

    Sounds good eh? i wonder how much$$............

    These are kind of cool also and you can dial the beam in like a mag-lite.

    I ended up replacing some kc lites with a set of hella 550 round lights. They put off a large amount of light. I went with a driving light, but they also offer a fog light. They were only 60 bucks from pep boys, wiring and all.

    I bought 2 sets (4 lights) for $40 at Walmart.!
    I like them because the light covers have Blazer in white written on them, they give out brilliant light for their size and cost.

    How do you plan on mounting them? There is a light bar I built that I sell on my home page. Also I bought those lights at Autozone for less then $100. They're not great, but they work.

    You can get a pair of good lights for under $100...............the heck with $345 for lights............I'd spend the extra $245 on something else fun...............

    i think they are probably way to expensive. I have the LightForce ones like steve and love them. I ahve the GL06 bulbs in the blitz housings and they give me over 1 million candlepower. i use them for high beams. not to pricey either.

    You want some good bang for your buck, right at $100 and you can use them all the time. Get some Hella H4 headlights. I run a set of the "For offroad use only's" in my Supra and I'll tell you what you will forget about aux lights. With 90/100 watt bulb I can dim caddie auto dim lights from well over a mile. They will never flash a second time I can garantee. On low beam they don't fry the oncomming drivers. They work great in fog on low beam also. I have owned that set of lights since about 85 and just keep buying cars to fit them.

    I had 4 Night Blaster(shoulda know they were cheap from the name!) 55w off-road lights on the roof of my Blaze. One of them burned out a week after I put them on. I couldn't buy the bulbs and couldn't open the casings. I went out and bought 4 100w Eagle-Eye off-road lights and replaced the crappy ones. They are sweet. It is like daylight with them on. I accidentally left them on during the day one time. I had walked about 300 yards away from them and something caught my eye. Turns out the lights were so bright that they got my attention that far away. It was noon on a sunny day too!
