Price: $75.00
Pros: Great lights, simple to install
Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: If you cannot afford the expensive lights, then these are a great alternative. I have the 500 fogs mounted on my Body Armor bumper and they work fantastic. They do not blind anyone and they double the light in the first 30-40 ft and on the sides compares to using just the low beams. The factory fogs were pretty much useless! And i even wired these into the stock factory harness. (with the required resistor/capacitor mods of course)
Note that 55W is exactly why i bought these. In many states, 55W is the max you can use ON-road and I can keep them uncovered all the time and still be 100% legal. Using 100W means keeping them covered and using them only off-road.
So for a 55W light, these are great. I also have the Hella 700 Driving lights, and they are great too. but I know, as with any aux light, that my next purchase will be the wire mesh covers to give them a bit of protection.

Comments: Overall great product. Have them mounted on the stock front bumper for now. Only wish I would get the cage cover but its not that big of a deal anyways.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: simple and effective design but low end product. you pay for what you get

Price: $100.00
Pros: Cheap, nice look, bright for the price
Cons: comes with confusing wiring/crappy wiring set-up
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought four of these Hella 500's new in the box of craigslist for $100, came with really crappy wiring (18g) so i threw all that out and rigged it up myself with my own wiring. they work great, pretty lengthy install time (about 6 hours), mounted them to my front roof rack cross rail. If you get a decent deal on them i'd go for it, better price than the competitors.

Price: $70.00
Pros: Easy to bolt on. Looks good. Pretty bright.
Cons: PAIN IN THE A$$ to wire.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: They are pretty sweet. I just bought 4 of them to put on my roof rack. So far, I love them. Only problem is... that they are a PAIN IN THE A$$ to wire. The instructions are crap unless you're a master electrician. Then again, this WAS my first wiring job.. so that may have something to do with it. Would I recommend them? Hella yes.

Pros: Easy to set up and are pretty bright for the price
Cons: Get a cheap nock off and does the same thing
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Only reason it gets a good is because of the 55w bulbs. Anything brighter than 100w bulbs and you'll be glad you upgraded. Significant difference by doing that!

Pros: free
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I found these laying around my dads garage. They were attached to an old Cherokee light bar and the wires had all been ripped out. My dad was using them as a weight to hold down a sheet over a car. I soldered them up, painted up the back and put them on my Olympic Auxiliary bar. I do not know what kind of Hella light they are, but they are 7" Hellas.

Pros: Look great, Very bright!
Cons: Nothing about the product itself, just ish I could use them more often!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have a White Jeep so these lights with the white light covers look awesome! I have them mounted in between my mirrors and my windshield which I think is different from the usual bumper mount and makes them stand out a lot more.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: I picked these up at my local checker for a pretty good price. They came with a wiring kit and instructions. The instructions said to tie them into your brights wire but i just ran it off its own switch. They are a lot brighter than my brights and I may just buy another set.
