Lights. You already have rims and they won't do anything for your functionality. But that's always my bias, lol.

I say rims. Its ridiculous when two lights cost as much as a set of rims.

lol! I agree with the price. My "Rally" brand cheapy lights are 100w each and cost $19.95 a pair at "Big Lots". Of course, you never know what is going to be at Big Lots so chances are you won't find them. There were only two sets when I went to the local one.

I still think it depends on your goal: getting noticed or adding function. You've never stated what the goal of spending that much money is, so everybody is imposing their frame of reference.

So the question is: why do want each of them? If it's looks, either will do, but perhaps the wheels are more important. If it's function, new wheels without a corresponding tire change buys you virtually nothing in terms of function, so lights would be the only logical choice.

well my plan is to do both evetually with larger tires and a spindle lift but im just trying to do it a little at a time since money is always tight... looks are always good but i want it to perform off-road as well which is my main reason for these mods

If you are willing to go away from the KC's, I have a set of PIAA's I have been thinkng about selling, they have never been used. I need to find the model number on them, but I think they sell for like $250 new, I would be willing to let them go for $150 + shipping, and would sent the light tabs as well.

Those kind of warranties only cover product defects like the wiring shorting out, melting stuff, etc. (where the problem is the products fault not yours). Now if you bash it against a rock its your fault.
