how many off-road lights is enough?
Hey guys, I got a question.
I've done the searches on here and didn't really find an answer to my lighting question. I'd like to add 2-4 off-road lights (or 3) doesn't matter to me. I can see there are 55 watt, 100watt 130watt, 150watt etc.. with all different ammounts of candle power. I know more is better, but also runs hotter etc...
SO...my question is sort of like this. I'd rather buy 2 expensive lights that will light up the off-road enviorment better than 4 cheaper lights. I probably won't do any wood/forest driving but if anything sand dunes. I have looked at Hella, Pro Comp, and KC. My girlfriend has Hella 550's on her 4-runner and they are very bright. Another buddy has 8" pro comp lights and I thought they were horrible. I have never seen KC though.
So what I am looking at doing is the plastic cover where the tow hooks are, cut out holes and mount driving lights there like the Hella 550's or equivlent KC ones. Then having a off-road hoop or light bar with 2 KC's or Hella's OR if for some reason 4 is that much better than 2?
Please help me out guys, I am just looking to see idea's and opinions on what would work better, 2 or 4?
