i own a set of hella driving lights off ebay for a good price. and the set of two lights comes with a pre-terminated relay and toggle switch. and they do have a good range to them.

Use the "search" below where you sign in. Theres been lots of post on all facets of this subject. Try different search terms like "driving lights", "fog lights", "off road lights" etc.

I have both KC Daylighter 130w Driving Lights as well as the Long Range.
I would recommend the Driving Lights, as the Long Range are more of a thin long spot light type.

The Driving Lights throw almost twice as far as your high beams.
They are wired with a relay and a switch.
These are not street legal, however if you just use some common courtesy and turn them off when you see on coming traffic, you should be okay.

I've had perfect luck with several sets of KC lights with my last being their newer 8". You sure can't beat KC's warranty, what is it something like 23 years including the bulbs?

I installed Hella Black Magic lamps and use 100w bulbs. Very bright but be sure you use a relay setup. Replaced my sealed beams with a H4 package and run 100w bulbs with relays and have 130W bulbs to try after I go through state inspection. No street lamps where I live so you have to use your own to stay away from the deer.

Indeed. And they are local, well, to Arizona anyway.
