I wouldn't doubt they are better lights for a second, but I don't need that much more light for 10x the price(or whatever it happens to be). I run in to too many trees using my jeep the way I do now. I would feel really bad if I broke a good one.

The last "regular" lights I had were some Hellas, got them from Walmart for $10 or something, bought two pair. Those were not even close to what my light bar is.

The lights themselves will potentially flicker and/or short out. Make sure anything you buy comes with the appropriate harness and resistors and is wired properly. After that get what you think looks good and suits your uses.
I use my lights every weekend, and usually once or twice during the week. I am probably going to invest in one of those goofy 52 inchers that I have seen around. The little a-pillar lights leave a lot to be desired.

If you want some low cost, yet functional I would look into these from Harbor Freight. I purchased the smaller lights and was impressed with them. I tested mine before installing by running them constantly on a power supply for 90 minutes, they didn't overheat or flicker once. They seem well made and solid to the feel.
