All above major brands are good. I like lights with plastic housing over steel, they don't rust.

Are you sure you want fog lights? Look at the beam patterns for the different types of lights. Fogs are broad and down low, floods are wide also but not flattened. Driving lights are anarrow beam and reach out past your high beams, pencil are even narrower.

Decide your usage and go from there. You might want or need more than one type.

I really like my KC Slimslites. I went with the 100w driving lights, with the front bumper mounting bar. Nice and bright, east to install. I highly recommend these.

I'm pretty sure I want fog lights, i want something that has that broad angled down pattern, for driving in heavy rain and fog...i get a lot of both up at school and I'm trying to add a few mods before i take it up next year

I want to get a paoir of fog lights as well. I plan on mounting them on the front bumber. Then I want to get a set of lights for off roading that i will mount on the edge of the hood/Windshield area. I was thinking of getting the Hella Black Magic 500 Driving lights. Will they be good or should i go with Flood since i want to use it for offroading (using it mainly for that reason due to it most likely wouldn't be road legal)?
