Lights?

Ok, I'm looking into getting some trail/street round lights. Maybe some KCs, but I don't know. Well here are my questions...What set would you guys recomend(hopefully under $100) and what is the best way to install on a stock front bumper?

Any help you guys can give would be appricated.

Dont bother spending somuch money on lights. 55 watt's looks just as bring on a $25 light set as it does on a $100 set. I got my 55 watt off road lights from Kragen for $24.00 they are brighter then my headlights and have a little grill in front of them even. So if I ever break them, I can look at it and laugh instead of cry. Then just go and buy another set. I have had my $24.00 set for over 9 months and still shining bright. Just dril some holes on the bumper and mount. I placed mine on a smitty built brush guard.

To Jeep or not to Jeep, what's the question?

At 4wheel parts until Sunday, you can get pro-comp lights for buy one get one free. I have had a set before and they aren't the greatest but they worked good enough for me. In my opinion you can't beat a pair of stainless 6" for less than 50 bucks. Make sure you pick up a switch kit to wire them up. I agree with the install method above. For a stock bumper, just drill some holes and bolt them on.

I've got some small amber fog lights mounted on top of my bumper right now(just drilled and bolted on). I'm thinking about replacing them with some better lights, but I think I will keep things "square up there", Not sure what round lights will look like with my "square" headlights. Anyway, it's pretty simple to mount them on top of the bumper by drilling some holes. The only thing is positioning them so they're not in the way of the turn signal/parking lamps.

95, 4" susp. lift, 33x12.50 ProComp M/T's, custom square tube bumpers, , energy bushings, 4.0 HO, everything stock, 1" or 2" body lift and who knows what else coming soon.

I'm thinking of mounting them "inside" of my tow hooks so that they aren't in the way of anything

THX SFAjeeper, I got 2 Pro Comp 130s and a wireing kit for jsut over $50. That should be enough to light my way down the backroads and even dark highways. now the question is, will the wireing kit have all the diagrams I need or will I have to find them somewhere online?
