Lighting Suggestions

Im looking to buy some new fog lights and am not sure what i want yet. Im more partial to rectangular lights because i want to keep with the squarish appearance of the zj. the lights i have on it now are some dinky little walmart brand pieces of junk that offered little to no lighting difference.
What are you zj guys running and if you dont mind posting some pics?
I really want to put some lights on the roof too so those pics would be a bonus

i searched the kor website and couldnt find anything there about their bumper mounted light bar.

im thinking about getting a bunch of hella 500's and putting 4 on one of my roof racks and the two or three on the bumper where i already have two.
i just need to find a decent price.

Never heard a bad thing about Hella 500s. Very reasonably priced, too.

I got a pair with covers at walmart for $65

thats good to hear, im going to ask for 4 of them for christmas and then pick up another two for the bumper then. im going to try and wire them into the stock switch w/ fog light setting and the harness i have in my basement.
I think i might also get one of the kc hilites backup light set. does anyone run those? and if so how do you like it?
