Any suggestions for Reasonably Priced Driving Lights?

Unread post by Sirhuntalot » December 27th, 2013, 8:45 am

Hi All, First time forum user so apologies if this topic has been covered.

I just bought a new ute and looking at putting a set of spot lights for long distance driving . I don't want to drop a grand on a set of lights and was wondering if you guys have any cheaper suggestions. I do a fair bit of corrugated road driving and I live in the tropics so I can't go too cheap and nasty. Is there a middle ground out there somewhere???

Any help is much appreciated.

I've been running a couple of pairs of night stalker halogens for years now.
I had a smaller pair on my van...now in the shed and a larger 10 inch pair on the hilux.
they are god solid stell and glass units, give a pretty decent pattern and have a good mount.

One thing....always grease your mounting bolts.

cheers

+1 on the narvas either the 175 or 225, I've used both, get the combination spot and spread.

Thanks for the feedback fellas. I ended up with the Narva 225's. $300 off ebay with all the wiring and switches included.
