Suggestion on lights

Hey guys whats happenin? I just installed my 4XGUARD Matrix Brush Guard System and I wanna put some bright a$$ lights on there! I'd like a euro beam because it seems to have both good distance and width. Fog is usually a wider pattern and pencil beam is long and narrow. HID would be great, but most of the time they're pretty expensive. I'm also planning on converting my OEM low beams and fog lights to HIDs.

I think I need a smaller compact size (I'd love larger ones??)(haha sounds funny) and so far I've looked into the Hella Optilux 4" HID Driving Lamp. HID w built in ballast. Fairly priced and seems to have a good light projection and brightness in a compact size. Also looked at the PIAA 510 SMRs. They look pretty nice too. Don't know what size I can go but it def seems to be more compact...

Hella Optilux 4" Driving Lamp

Anyone have any experience or suggestions??

Thanks,
G


Shes ready for lights...

Really?? Dunno how long they've been around but I did tons of research and found nothing out there I liked. At all!! Then someone from this sweet board told me about 4XGUARD and the rest is history. Although I still want their front and rear skid plates.

www.4xguard.com

As far as the bumper install, that was Wednesday! And damn have I misse wrenching!!

The Hella optilux is around $199. Not bad for contact xenon HIDs right?!
