    Hey,

    Well Im thinking of getting a set of off-road lights to put on my Front Roof Rack bar like a few members have done, they will be more for show than actual functionality, I can think of a few times here and there they might come in handy but for the most part just for looks.

    So now to my question, since Im more concerend with looks is their someplace online I can get 4 x 6" Round lights at a good price? I checked my local pep boys and they just had some oval shaped ones, I wanted some that were the standard 6" round size. I also searched but didn't come up with much.

    Anyway thanks for the help guys.

    -Matt

    procomp and hella have some pretty cheap lights (not the really cheap crap youll get at most autopart stores) but they are not too expensive and also are pretty decent quality and give out a good amt of light for what you are paying.

    Hey,

    Yeah I was looking at the ProComps, they are pretty decent looking for the money. Ill check out the Pilots at Autozone and see what they are like and how much they want for them.

    I may end up going with the ProComps If I cant find something that is 1/2 ways decent at a good price.

    Thanks guys
    -Matt

    I wouldnt buy the pilot ones. They are cheap but you get what you pay for. I bought a pair to put on my safari bar and they hooked up ok and turned on fine. SO I decide to break them in and go for a little ride in them. No off roading or anything, just wanted to see how they light up. They were bright and lit up my whole neighborhood. However ten minutes into the ride the right one burns out. The bulb melts and kinda ruined the housing. I hooked it up just like the instructions said. I would go with a better quality light! This autozone here sucks!

    I've been running the same sets of Pilot lights for over 4 years without any problems.
