Mud and water led, hid projectors, or halogen?

I live in Florida and while going off road I do many mud and water crossings. Would LEDs, HID projectors, or halogen headlights lights be better suited to hold up to these elements?

My headlights have gone used water before and I want to have something rugged enough to hold up to this abuse. I am leaning towards Truck Lites due to them being used in the military.

Any of this type of lighting is suitable for off road activities. As long as its well sealed and install correctly.

Look for dust-proof and waterproof ratings of IP68 (preferred) or IP67, any lighting with that classification will survive your off-roading.

If you can get them sealed, they'll all do well. Although the HIDs seem to have the most sealing problems in my experience (ok for rain and such, but being submerged is a different story). LED would be my preferred since there's nothing to burn out... even if you get some condensation inside, it'll go away eventually.
