What would you do

This may seem silly but I dont really know what way to go. I know its all probably personal preference, but id like to know what YOU would do.

Going to get a Randy Ellis Sleekster light bar (just plain and simple) going to mount 4 KC Daylighters on it. My delima is what combo to use?

4-150w long range
4-130w driving
2-150w long range & 2-130w driving

I know they are not road legal.

What combo would you get and why.

Thanks,

FiveseveN

I'd contact GCOP and purchase a set of HIDs for my original headlights since I'm a premium member and not even worry about a light bar. Still have about the same light too. I'm actually picking up three sets of them tomorrow at the Texas meet.

Im acctually planning on doing that as well. I just want to get the KC's mainly for looks (more off road look) and to use as extra lighting when we go 4 wheelin and campin or whenever.

But yeah the HID's are on my list.

Four of those high wattage lights are going to put a tremendous amp draw on your electrical system. Not that a healthy system couldn't handle it, but you will definately know if something isn't perfect.

You did see this post, correct? HID's For Premium Members!!

Yeah I did see that post, I believe I posted in it......I think.

I know there will be strain. Like I said its mainly for the looks when the lights are off. But IF I need them then I just wondered what combination would be good.
