Yes long range is good for the hood. It'll produce the least glare out of any light. Also fogs are best down low because being low, that's just the best light pattern. You can just drill thru the bumper and metal sub bumper and just bolt the lights in that way, or there are many different types of light bars to chose from. As far as a cargo basket, harbor freight and northern tools all have cheap ones you can order. I think I picked mine up for $35 and I use it all the time
As far as watt concerns: 55w is the legal limit for on road lights. To be legal tho, they have to be DOT approved which KC's are not. If they are 55 or less, it's not blatantly obvious you're running illegal/non DOT lights, but still, its best to do it legal if you want to run them on the street. If you don't do them on the street, I'd say bigger is better. I'd buy both in 130w.
