I'm looking for a few round off-road lights preferably flood but might use a couple of spots would be good too.

There are thousands of Chinese LEDs on eBay but I have no ide what to do. I know I don't want $500.00 lights but something that's rugged since It for off road use.

I prefer round because their going on an old Landcruiser.

Kragen HID's. Or any of the other identical chinese off road HIDs, they work excellent and usually run around 100$ a pair. Most have a red trim ring but can easily be painted. I noticed pro comp has their name on what looks to be the same ones now and they're black and silver.

I have 4 of the Chinese knock-off HID's with the red ring, 2 spot, 2 flood. Have had them about 2 1/2 years, and have had no problems. They are insanely bright, and other than the red ring fading quickly, they still look good. Usually I'm a proponent of you get what you pay for, but these things have been the exception!

I'm with you, I just prefer round lights on older trucks. I have Vision-X LED's. Very high quality lights with precision optics. Not cheap but good value for the price. They have a fluted housing that acts as a heat sink and built in adjustment knobs.

I have some 4 inch round 27 watt TTX Lighting el-cheapo in my bumper and they would surprising well. I like them better than the round PIAAs they replaced that cost far more.



I did get to see a buddy's 42 watt Kawell version and those are better but 3 times the price, yet still cheap enough they will likely be tacked on the next Amazon order to try.

I have one of the LED light bars I bought for my wifes SUV. Doesn't get used much, more for aesthetics, but it has been ok. Based on reviews I has seen, I pulled it apart and resealed the lens first due to several people saying theirs has started showing moisture inside the lens.

I have hella 500s with 55w HID installed. Insanely bright, great focused light and cheap as chips.

Spend the money. Get the good stuff (Vision X, ARB, Lightforce).

I've got no idea why I'm not allowed to post links (anyone care to clue me in?! ;) )...but go to Amazon & search for "Stansen 51w"

& they're bright as all h*ll too! All four only draw 16 amps total IIRC

I'll be swapping my 20" LED bar back to my two Hella 4000 compacts (Euro beam) whenever I get back to the States. I've been happy with them; my old Tacoma had the full sized Hella 4000s and I liked them as well they were just huge. I had Hella 500s on my VW and my FJ40.
