Best long range spotlights.
 
Hey everyone, I'm looking to pick up a above windshield light rack. I'm just wondering if I can get some opinions on what spots to get? Mainly for range road and late night highway/ mountain driving. I want to get something long range for a moderate price. What gives the best bang for your buck?

HIDs - if you can get them Xray vision makes a 90W HID

My kc daylighters are pretty bright and focused. I have 2 and they are lighting up this depot from about 150 yards away. iPhone camera doesn't do them any justice.

I have PIAA spots on my windshield mounts and I converted them to HID. Absolutely love them. No glare off the hood and super bright and great distance. Just the regular halogen PIAA spots were great as well, I just prefer HID.

Converted them how? Different bulbs. I got a free pair off generic off road lights from my father in law for doing some work for him. Instead of telling him I didn't want to use them and with some persuasion from my wife I put them on. I plan on running them till they rust or break but I want a whiter light instead of yellowish color. Theyre100 watts. Is there a particular brand bulb I could drop in there to make them better? Home made brackets by the way.

Yeah I changed the bulbs and added the HID ballasts (inside the dash) and I had to modify the back side of the spot housings, since the PIAA's are kind of thin and HID bulbs are long. Most fogs/spots use H3 style bulb. You may want to open it up and verify before purchasing new bulbs.. Just look around on eBay, or Amazon for bulbs. Local part stores usually cost a good bit more.

I put on 2 pairs of HID KC hilites.. Not the most cost effective but it's like the neuron light from Men in Black when all four are on.. Very bright..
