Lighting upgrade, show me what you did???

I'm looking to upgrade my lights on my truck not sure if I want to replace the whole headlight assembly or just add a light bar or additional driving/fog lights wired to my up fitter switches.

If I leave the stock headlights and do the light bar I want to be able to run them or two of them when running high beams on back country roads to see deer better.

So just looking for options and pictures of what you all have tried.

Thanks

I have lightbars and upgraded 4" square LED lights in my factory fog light location on my '09. They're controlled by the upfitter switches. I also upgraded to HIDs in the headlights.

I'm running a 20" double row light bar in my bumper hooked to AUX1 upfitter. Awesome light great for filling that hole. I want to add a 40" single row in the top opening off the grill above the two center bars connected to the high beams. Someone already did it, but I can't find the thread.

Thanks for the information guys. I'm probably just going to go with a light bar or something similar to the set ups you guys are running right now. That should do what I want to help improve the stock lighting.

JimNVA = I like that setup.

I installed rigid duallys next to my license plate in the front bumper and once I get time I'm going to swap them with dually D2s for a little more light output. This was last year right after I put them on. Lighting upgrade, show me what you did???-imageuploadedbyautoguide1354395801.971344.jpg

Those look great. Isn't it such a let down how Ford lights suck from the factory?

Yes it is. You'd think for $64k we'd get lights that were bright.

My 99 and 06 F150s were fine and the 08 6.4L was good as well especially the high beams but man on this 11 the high beams are crap. So I guess I gotta fix the problem and you guys are giving me some good ideas.

Thanks
