kc off road lighting set up.

hey guys, im thinking about getting kc offraod lights for my truck, i have a few questions. which light would you suggest i get, if i wasnt going to use a mount bar, i just want to mount them right up on my front bumper(if possible). Is there anything i should look out for. i also want a good light that is bright, but not intsensely bright, prefferably just driving lights, but at the same time be able to light up the trails later at night. chances are they wont be on while i am driving.


any pictures showing me ur lights mounted on your bumpers would be great also.


appreciate it guys.
mike

youd either need to drill holes in your bumper(bad) or fab up some type of "L" bracket to mount the lights to...

I went for the KC slimlites. They're still pretty bright and light up more of the center and sides of the road the way I have them set up which is what I wanted them to do. I really like them. I bought the brackets from underdog and the lights from summit. I still have to figure out where I want the swtich though! I like those lights mounted in the grille, looks pretty sweet.
