Aftermarket Lights

Hey i'm looking to get some wind shield brakets and install some lights. I was wondering what are the best lights for a reasonable price? Thanks

Hella 500's are a good combo of quality, performance, and price.

I have the KC Slimlites and I like them. I guess it would depend on how much you want to spend and how you want to use them. I have the KC factory replacement fogs and use them all the time. I also have a set of driving lights and use them instead of the brights. They are bright and work well.

Summit Racing has some inexpensive off road lights that look just like the KC slim lights but cost $60. I posted the link below for ya.

I have Hella 500 driving lamps on my windshield brackets, and Hella 500 Fog Lights on my bumper. very happy with the price and light output. I ordered my Fogs, but the driving lamps you can find at most local auto part stores...

I would say they are as close to the KC slimlights without actually saying "KC" on them, and the KC covers will even fit.

I was able to snag my KC Daylighters off eBay for $100 shipped. But that was some time ago.

Still love them though.
