I need better Headlights!!! HIDs?

After being in Yellowstone, it showed me how bad the JK headlights SUCK.

So now I'm shopping for something better. I really like the TL Led lights, but being north of $400, that's a little to much for me.

I'm thinking HIDs from Rebel, the Hellfires??

Anyone have thoughts in a alternative headlight solution around $200ish

save up and get lightforce if you really want killer lights. They are expensive but there's a world a difference in them. Their xenophot are cheaper and very good and bulb life is amazing (in the thousands of hours). Even more expensive are their HID's but they use good ballasts that run for years and the lamp housings are extremely tough. The best part is that their lights can be twist focused like mag light flashlights...no more picking and choosing a preset. I will guarantee that their smallest set, the 140's, will kill just about anything you want to compare them to but they start at $300 just for the lamps.

Could someone provide links to either the Pirate tests or the JW ?

Or both for that matter.
