I loved my Hellas, had them on my F150. I had the regular halogens, but they were damn bright!! Too big for my Jeep, though.

Re: Off Road Lights

I know LEDs are more expensive, but I'm sold on them. The rigid lights are much lower profile (around 2" tall) than 6" lights, and compared to halogen they are much more efficient, longer lasting, draw less current, more durable, etc. You can submerge Rigid's in fishtanks while lit and beat them with baseball bats-check out their youtube product dev videos. I can't compare the LEDs to HIDs in any other way than size because I haven't owned any HIDs before. I just know when I began shopping for aftermarket lights that I wasn't too excited about the look of a bunch of round lights that could have yellow smiley face covers running across my roof-(just my opinion).
Whichever direction you choose, I would recommend going with a quality product. Make sure you combine spots and floods to get good coverage. Throwing something like Hella 500's up there is just going to give you massive bright spots wherever you point them (I've owned several pairs of them on multiple vehicles. I currently have a pair behind the grill. They also won't last too long under hard use, such as getting smacked by tree branches. I like Acid's idea of the 7" trucklights getting slapped in a stock housing. If I had money to throw around I'd try it. Here are a few pics of my setup:

Re: Off Road Lights

Both look REALLY cool, thanks guys!

Nikates: have you wired those up yet? I dont think i've seen pics with light output from lights on top of the WK - i'd be curious to see some. What types are those?

Re: Off Road Lights

They are wired but I don't have them on. I only use them when I go camping or wheeling. There 100 watt KC day lighters.

Very cool! If you have ANY pics of them at night - I'd greatly appreciate it......like you need an excuse to go out and get some (time off-road, i mean...) pics

Just lurk all the jeep forums, eBay, and craigslist and they come up here and there. I bought my first one off craigslist and my new 30" off of jeepforum.com classified section. The 30" is even new in box that a guy bought but never installed. I might end up putting my 20" up for sale if I decide not to use both.
