Help me choose light setup!

Ok, so all of you are a lot smarter than me and i would rather get the best opinions than spend money and waste it. I'm not sure how to set up lights on my rig.. But something needs to be done. I lost my fogs with the bumper swap. And the stock lights just aren't cutting it. I was thinking some pillar light or two on the bumper.. Or both. What would you guys suggest????

I would say on the bumper just so the Fayetteville police don't bother you much...

Nodak what is this you say about Fayetteville police?? Pillar lights an issue?

Budget wise I could go up to $500 I suppose. But I don't have to if I don't need to. It doesn't all have to be done at once either. Maybe two now, two later.

I've heard of them pulling people over for using A-pillar and light bars in the city. But then I see some ridiculous stuff they don't bat an eye at (i.e. crazy neon glow, non-dot approved headlights, blaring horn speakers outside the vehicle...). I switched to truck lites last week and don't even use my fogs anymore. If it's for off road, go a-pillar (I'm saving up for some). If you want on road, get some good driving lights for the bumper.

Any particular brand better than the other? I know literally nothing about lights and which is better for what. I am looking mostly for on road daily driving lights.

I know rigid industries makes some really good lights. They are on the pricey side. The rigid industries duallys (spot light) make good driving lights (flood, and d2s are too bright for on the streets). There are some reviews of good cheaper eBay lights but I don't know enough to steer you in that direction.

Rigid is good, and you can definitely get the ebay ones but you do get what you pay for on a lot of those lights. Take a look at the IP rating of those lights in particular. Most of those ebay light bars are IP67 rated, which means technically they are submersible up to 1 meter for a half hour. Rigid, CSI, and I believe VisionX now are IP68 rated...which means they are waterproof beyond 1 meter and typically hermetically sealed. Living in the PNW Ive seen too many of the Ebay lights with condensation in the lenses from the rain and road spray.
