..Yeah, 'cause that was because you were being a dick and had them ON while on the road. They don't give you a hard time for having them uncovered or anything, right?

For the difference in price between the hella 500 and the KC lights even if I break 2 Hellas I still will have saved money over the KC's. From what I have heard from many people is that Hella is a good second choice if you don't want to spend $150 on KC's. You can get Hella's for about $60 with kit.

Alright alright alright. I'm sorry about the *dick* bit.. I didn't really mean you are a dick.. just that you were sorta .. well, you (and most of the other regulars here) probably know what I mean. I've done the same thing, flipped 'em on for half a second just to prove they still work (after I've been monkeyin' w/ wiring or such) or to show someone 'the power' of my ingenuity .. or something like that. But then I understand the ticket somedays too. I've been on the receiving end of a jacked up pickup w/ too much candle power. It can about blind you for a min. Having that happen while trying to control several thousand pounds of metal, rubber and fuel can be, well, crappy..

Surprised you got a ticket if you killed them ASAP. But then using them on-road is sorta asking for trouble, just as street racing etc is. But the DE ticket for no covers thing is a bit over the top IMHO..

i would hate to have solid covers on em, though... texas is pretty lax on most things...

I have 2 150watt "Dick Cepek Baja Laser" that I got off ebay for 45$ shipped (pair)
They are all metal, and mount pretty good. Only had to adjust them once in 4 monthes and thats because I didnt tighten them enough the first time.

I wanted the $$$ lights but for as much as I actually have them on...
I'm very happy with these. They came with covers.






dont mind the junk thats an install pic.
