KC vs PIAA vs Hella?
I'm looking to buy two sets of lights for my TJ - fog (bumper) and driving (windshield).

Obviously there are endless choices, but I'd like to get your feedback/experience with the different brands. I'm eyeing the KC HiLites 130W Slimlights for the driving, as they seem to be a good balance of cost & sheer power, but not sure if that's the case in your experience.

I guess the key question is, if I don't care about brand name, what's going to throw the most light down the trail/street? Is going with the higher-end PIAA or IPF lights going to be worth it, or should I get the least expensive Hella's and throw 100w bulbs in them?

Another option I'm considering is the PIAA 550 or 525 with the dual fog/driving bulbs so I've only got to mess with one set of lights.


Thanks, Ryan

go with the 4" or 7" round HIDs for about $110 ea. I had a set on my prerunner and they were super bright. I'm now going to order the 4" set for the windshield lights on my TJ.
Here's the ones I've ran.
4in and 7in HID Lights Brand New, In Stock and Ready to Ship!
