You can't go wrong with the usual suspects....KC or Hella. Personally I picked up a pair of X Vision 6" 100W and am perfectly happy with them.....especially for CDN$100 wiring and switch included!

i just put the smittybilt bumper & winch on my 09 Rubicon, and put KC's on the windshield. I'm trying to figure out how to use the existing wiring from the original for lights for KC fog lights ( i've been told this might create problems) But back to your question I like KC lights.

I wired my 4" HID lights into my factory fog light wiring and then mounted them on my Smittybilt XRC front bumper. I have ran the lights for 4 months now with no wiring problems. Here's some of the write-up I did on the full install....



I also decided to wire up two 4" HID lights and tapped into the stock fog light wiring so I could reuse the factory switches. The HIDs draw very little amperage so I'm not worried about blowing fuses, etc. After the install, I had them on for more than 15 min while I adjusted them and took these photos.

Here's a pic of the splice into the factory wiring (before I buttoned it all up).






And with the HIDs on by themselves and then with the factory headlights.


09 Unlimited Rubicon Flame Red
~8.5" TeraFlex LCG Long Arm
~41x14.50 Interco IROK Radials
~20x10 RBP-93R wheels with red inserts
~RCV Performance front D44 CV-style axle shafts
~Posion Spyder Crusher flares, Rock Brawler Bumper, Rocker Knockers w/sliders and Hawse fairlead
~Warn 9.5ti Winch w/synthetic line
~Rhino Lining tub
~Katzkin interior
~10lb Powertank & VIAR Xtreme
~Drake Off-Road billet bling

Hella 500 with 100 watt bulbs on my SRC, they throw decent light. When they are trashed, or I finish up some other things I will be installing HID's. For the money you just can't beat the light output. I would love some LED lights, they should last much longer, but they are awful pricey at the moment.

I recently purchased the same lights.
Nothing fancy but for $100 CAD I am super happy!!! Switch, wiring, and relay included.

Just put the bumper and lights on. Now trying to decide if I should use the fog light wiring or run a new wire and switch. Any thoughts?

HIDX is the best bang for your buck. HUGE advantages in output and much less draw and heat... not all that much more money than a high quality/output halogen.
