Can't speak highly enough about the rigid led lights I put on the 'burb. Not sure if I can link them here but light up the night and don't use hardly any juice. One thing that is interesting is they do not generate a lot of heat and believe it or not, in a slushy/icy road, they will actually ice over and need to be scraped to get the ice off. Just do not get hot enough to keep the ice away. Literally night and day.

I put some pics up in my garage of my set-up. Not sure what your budget is but the Rigid's are kick ass.

Nice.
Mine are about the same effect although with new bulbs in my headlights and the all on mod it wasn't as dramatic as it would would have been but there is a massive difference. Today I have to switch some wires, seems I hooked up the LEDs to my low beams. Lol

Wherer did you get them? How much? If they don't need as much juice we don't have to worry about upgrading the light harness.
