Help with light bar and lights!

so i just got my first wrangler back in september and just recently came into about $500. i have been eyeing this light bar for awhile now and i would like to know if it was a good buy?
Also what lights do i need to get? what is i good brand that wont make me have to skip college tuition next year? and shuld i go with driving? fog? or long range lights? or a mixture of them all? i had an idea of two fogs on the outside. followed by driving next then the long range in the center? any help will be great thanks!

Do you need the extra lights? Really? The reason I ask is that once you install the bar, you're pretty much stuck with it I think, and I know some folks who've regretted doing just that. That's $ that could possibly be spent much better on some armor... But, if you do a lot of night wheeling then lights are probably a good investment after you've armored up and taken care of all the necessary recovery items.

I looked at a light bar & an led light but don't think it would stay long, I would smack it on low things & bsides the Jeep wouldn't fit in my garage with one. Also unless you are thinking of doing a lot of night off roading they kind of are a waste of money IMO just look cool

I have a light bar and love it. Its a lot sturdier built than that one, and has protection for the lights, but I love having all the extra light. I lived in an area where you could drive for a few miles without seeing a street light and it was great!

IMO....if you upgrade your headlights, about 215.00, from rallylights.com, you won't need the light bar and will be $$$ ahead.

That is if you want lights or something sexy.........but not useful.
