For off road lights, the higher you can get them up, the better. Unless you have a roll bar, bumper or grill mounting seems to be the next best option.

People over on TRS are acutally drilling holes and putting them on their cowl (front of the windsheild) Personally I think it looks like shit unless its on a jeep.

IMO, a light is a light as far as brands go. You're paying for names.

I have to agree, I have had KC Daylighters, cheapo tardmart brand, I have Hella's now, and am looking at a different set, I've had buddies with multiple other brands...they all do a pretty good job. The noticable thing to me, is that brands like KC, Hella, PIAA, etc tend to make a product that stands up better to abuse, and have better seals to keep weather out, the lights tend to last a lot longer from what I have seen to. Go with what is in your price range, or save and get exactly what you want.
