Order those new hidX lights. Awesome prices and better then regular lights. Of course they are a little bulky because of the hid starters.

From what I've seen, which admittedly is very little, lol... both KC and IPF have impressed me.

But then again I saw a huge night and day difference between my factory 9008's and the new Hella ones I installed. They are, without a doubt, twice as bright as factory.

Any one have any experience with these? http://yellowandbluelighting.com/YBC...5/Default.aspx I was thinking that they would look really good but I want to get the most light for the money

The HIDX lamps put out a lot of light and are great value for HID's.

PIAA make good quality lights.

Thanks for the responses guys. I will put som HIDX on the front bumper and I just order these for the windshield http://yellowandbluelighting.com/YBC...5/Default.aspx and I ordered the 100w bulbs to replace the 55w that they come with. Anyone ever done that I would like to hear if it works allot better. I will let you all know how changing the bulb out works

Without bringing $ into the equation (and the OP did not) I'd hate to try to argue against the VisionX Xmitter LEDs.

well just a thought but Kragen sells these HID's for $99 and JP magazine did a review on them saying they were the best bang for your buck. Turns out two guys that i wheel with have had them for acouple of years and love them.

My choice is the Hella Cornering beams. I have a set on my cherokee mounted to the bumper and they are by far the best lighting i have had. (personal choice) They are an 8" light so you will need room to mount them but they work really well at lighting up a very large area around the jeep.
Just my $.02
