Driving Light Setup what do you like??

Alright I am looking for a good setup for driving lights on a stock bumper? I also want your input on resonably priced driving lights!!?? To give you an idea of my current setup I replaced my stock headlights with the cheap euro lights from ebay 25$. I like them especially with the combo of my factory fogs!! What I want to do is add driving lights and hook them up to a toggle switch so I can have my headlights, foglights, and then driving lights on all at the same time!!! Any ideas of how to mount drivin lghts to my stock bumper and decently priced drivin lghts would be great tks in advance folks!!!!!

P.S. I want to be able to see further down the road at the flick of a switch and be able to shut them off when I have oncoming traffic

KC Daylighters Work great, I dont know what your idea of "reasonably" is but i got mine set off amazon for 115 bucks. Wiring harness, switches everything you need. I also got KC fogs to go with them. They work great you can see ALOT farther down the road when aimed right, but gotta be careful cuz they are super bright for oncoming traffic. Heres a picture of how i mounted mine and the switches

I'm thinking of adding 2 Unity spotlights to my 09 JK. I've used them on pickups but never on my previous jeep or FJ, as they really didn't have good mounting kits. The eary jeeps had no real post to mount the lights and havw them look decent.

I have 2 hella 500's on the bumper (work great and are bright and reasonably price) and I have 2 KC 130 watt lights on the windshield (very bright) only use the kc's when off road and I use the hellas offroad and on back roads.

Kind of off topic, but to drummer 192, what's up with the Colgate?

Anyone have updated pictures of the KC Daylighters or Hella's at night?

Im trying to determine which is best for me. I want a driving beam, it doesnt have to be extra long range, just longer then my regular factory headlights.
