Lighting for WAAG

I ordered a WAAG bar in the group buy and it should be here in a few weeks. I want to get some lights to put on it. The two I have found that I like best so far are:

#1
http://www.kchilites.com/store/5x7-B...em--P9C25.aspx

#2
http://www.kchilites.com/store/4x6-C...Kit-P4C24.aspx

I want a light that I can use fairly often and I figured I'd point them somewhat between my low beams and high beams. These two caught my eye the most, but I am open to other styles, types, and brands.

I'd love to hear any opinions and/or suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Black 100w $147.69

Link

personally never buy direct from KC you get your **** handed to you on price. and slim lights 100w driving. I personally think these would do you 100% fine. and you will love them.

personally i am not a fan of square lights in general. and also a 55w lights really dont do crap for lighting anything up. might as well go to wally world and get the $10 lights...

I wasn't going to buy direct from KC, I'ce seen a few places quite a bit cheaper. Those are really nice too, I like them a lot, I saw the slim lights, but not that particular one, I just may have to go with those.

These say an "Ice blue" bulb colour, does that mean the light is blue, or is it white when it's on?

very nice. he is looking for a more all around light. the 150W is a good bright as hell light. I *think* he is looking for more of a let see here all around pattern light then just a long range light. dont get me wrong i love the 150w hell i have 6 of them. and btw truck looks good...

Right, Im looking for a driving light that I can use often enough to know I got my money's worth. My friend has some nice long range kc's with like 300,000 candle power, but rarely uses them, cuz they are too bright to drive around on the road.

Hey Gary, what size are those? 6" diameter?

These are KC daylighters - they have 1.5 mile range - pretty freakn' bright. I paid, if I remember correctly, $145 for the pair and another $60 for the 3rd one. It came with all the wiring, too. The mounts are really awesome as well. I dunno if you're into round lights, but here they are:
