KC or PIAA?

I need some opinions.........I'm lookin at the KC slimlite 130 watts and the PIAA 520's. Gonna be mounted on winshield brackets. Anybody running these lights care to chime in and give an honest opinion about these. I've had kc's before on other rigs but have no experience with PIAA.

Can you get the PIAA's with the rock guards?

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

I'm running 520 fogs and 520 driving. I've always preferred PIAA's lights. The wiring harness, relay, and switch on the PIAA's is very well done also.

You might also want to consider our HIDX lights. They arent too much more money than what you are already looking at, and have 3+ times the light output. They run MUCH cooler, and draw way less amps to not overstress your charging system. Over 50,000 lights have been sold in just under two years. They have been in races, the dunes, the rocks... they are proven to be high quality, and in incredible value for the performance.

Let me just say, too, they make a serious statement when you are out with all your buddies who are running the traditional halogens!

Thanks again for the reply's. After all the help I decided to give the PIAA's a go. Opted for the 520 XT smr's. Went with Rugged Ridge mounts aswell. Didn't want to spend a brownie on the mopar brackets and the KC brackets keep the lights a little to high and in for my taste. Gonna install tomorrow! Let the modding FINALLY begin!
