Looking to Add some after market lights

I have a 2005 F350 king ranch cc and i was thinking about adding some driving lights i already have the 55w Hid 6000 headlights and want to add more so my questions are 1. Which works better on top of the Headache rack or down between the tow hooks (i do have factory lights but would consider removing them) 2. What are some good lights (brands) and do they make reasonable HID add on lights. Does any one have any suggestions that i may not of thought of?

I just added some factory fogs w/silverstar bulbs in between the tow hooks. Hooked them to the up-fitter switch so I can have them on w/hi-beam or when ever I want, makes a huge difference.

Yea i was just looking at some recon LEDS and they look like the would fit perfect between the factory fog lights. How do you hook up to the upfitters are they already wired to the fuse box

Why not just add two more fogs, several people have done it and it looks pretty cool. One thing you'll have to do is check your local laws. Some states won't allow more than 4 lights on the front of a vehicle.

i have had both.... i had flood lights on top and directs in between the headlights... honestly it all depends on what your trying to achieve... if its for on road application i would do between the headlights... if your looking for off-road applications i would do above....

now as you know lights can be very expensive... HID lights will be anywhere from 150+ each light... LED's will be even more... and a LED light bar can be over 1k depending on what setup you want and how wide....

if you PM me a price range i can see what type of setup would be in that range...
