New lights question

So I'm planning to get some auxiliary lights here soon. I was planning on getting my lights from Rigid since everything I have heard about them has been positive so far. I know they are pricey but from what I can tell their quality and durability warrants the price tag.

I was planning on getting the 50" light bar and the dual D-series A-pillar mounts. My question comes into play as to what lights to use in the A-pillar mounts. I was planning on getting a pair of D2 Driving lights and either a pair of D series spot lights or D2 hyperspot lights to compliment them.

I'm just looking for suggestions as to what the second pair of A-pillar lights should be.

My KC pillar mount lights are almost worthless with my 50" light bar. Try that out first, then decide if you need more light. They are insane. I just have a cheap knock off from ebay, but I am very pleased with it.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If you don't like it, go break it!

I have this setup 50" E-Series LED Light Bar (white LEDs) all Spot and D-Series Flood pair (white LEDs)...I highly recommend the Rigid Industries LED lights and i feel they are at the highest quality possible and worth the price tag...

I have this setup mainly due to the type of off-roading i do which is high-speed off-roading and dune bashing so i thought the all spot on the E-Series would be more beneficial to cover as much distance as possible and the floods on the D-series are just to have wider angle light.

If you need any further info i will be glad to share what i have with you.

Check out the Black Box Logistics lights also, they are a little cheaper than Rigid and still use the same CREE LEDs. The Black Box 50" is almost 1k cheaper than the Rigid. I have the 12" spot/flood combo on my winch and love it. The thing lights up my neighborhood.

if you get a dual a-pillar bracket, i recommend the one from genesis off road. you can adjust either light in any direction you want. you aren't forced to have it facing only forward. I have the dually D2 spot's on the bottom mount facing forward, and the dually d2 wide facing to the front quarter panel left and right side. I have no need for a 50" light bar as with those 4 lights, my JW Speaker Head lights and the Rigid 10" E-series light bar on my bumper, I have enough light to see what I need. But I highly recommend the genesis off road bracket instead of the RI one.

I got a 50 LED bar and mounting Brackets from Bad Apply Fab, and it is a crazy amount of light. I can't imagin needing more light than that, only problem is you really can't use it for normal driving. I am considering some flush mount LED fog lights for every day use.
