Light output is great I upgraded the bulbs to piaa 100w bulbs but the pattern is great. And the mounting bracket I have is actually a 2 in 1 its a windshield light .mount and mirror mover in one. The mirrors and lights mount to the same bracket. I think its from warrior products and I got em from quadratec

p

They don't stick out far at all there in a perfect spot in my opinion there like tucked close to windshield cause of the mount and they don't stuck out the side of the body. Ur gunna like the 500ffs awesome lights for a great price

I love the all black look and WHEN you do tint do 15% all the way around and 50% on the WINDSHIELD it makes it! Lol **** laws lol if I pinpointed everything that's illegal on my jeep I would have probably 9 tickets and imounded jersey lift laws are terrible but it pays to know people who do inspection and the sticker actually scans to my VIN

Could you switch the bulb on any light pretty much?
I like the look of the Hella Black magic fog lights, but I was lookin for a 130w like the KC has. And for that matter, would I be able to do an HID conversion in the fog lights w/o breaking the bank and buying an HID fog light kit?

I recently put the KC 7" H4 Conversion headlamps on my TJ. $95 for the pair, but they do have a 23 year warranty!! Hard to beat KC's warranty. They are 100x better than the stock headlamps. I've always been a KC and PIAA fan. Not so much with Hella, but I don't doubt they will be better than stock, if that's the brand you want.

yeah i was looking at the KC ones too. just got off the phone with a guy from quadratec who said that people have been complaining about the plastic scratching too easily. he also had run the hella visions in his cherokee and loved them. long story short, my hella vision plus h4 kit will be here tomorrow, amazon with 1 day shipping totalled $82
