Aftermarket Fogs/offroad lamos... what to get?

Hey guys im about to order up some aftermarket Fog lamps or offroad lamps. I really wanted to go with the Hella Black Magic series.... but they are a little too pricey for my liking.


Anyone have some suggestion on a well priced set-up? Im not super knowledgeable in this area, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also found these at stuffforyourranger.com are these any good?

All I can say is, you get what you pay for.
I am putting money on it, that you are either going to be told to search, or this is going to turn into another hella vs KC thread.


Let me hit it on the head,

There are about 500 matches to just "hella" you might be able to find something there.

Thanks, first link, like redneckstone said... they are out of the price range.
Second link... tried that... like i said im looking for some suggestions on something affordable. The hella's are what i want but are too pricey... the procomps look good...


i agree with you on the you get what you pay for bit, which is why im asking before i buy

*Im sure i could post a link to the search bar for everything you have ever posted.. so lets not go there.

I picked up some harbor freight lights today and I was surprised how bright they are. Only cost me 22 bucks for 2 and they take an H3 bulb which means you can swap to HID if you ever want too.

I have been thinking of getting these. You get 4 x 130W for $50 plus shipping, at the very least, how bad can a 130W light be?

I was dead set on the hella black magics too.....but then i found out they were how much? and only 55w?? F-that!



I got two KC Titanium Slimlites for $60 used from a member here, then got two more brand new from 4wheelparts for $150 for the pair. Bam ding dong bing. 130w each. Plenty of light and they all carry that awesome humongo years long warranty.
