Question what are you using for extra lighting?

i've found myself driving through several areas heavley populated with deer and i've even seen some bear in sertain areas. my question is what do you use for driving/offroad lighting on the bunpers/ bull-bars? that wouldn't get me ticketed for highway use.
what's the best for the $$$$$ i really don't want something wally world sells for $20.00 but can't see paying more than $150.00 per light either? also is there a headlight replacement bulb that's better than stock?

thanks in advance.,william

for offroad lights head to Underdog-Performance, The Art of Power for some light tabs and then get your choice of off road lights to mount on them.

Those "hyper whites", would they happen to be called Silverstars on the box? Just curious as I have them and our light output seems very similar, didn't know if Sylvania re-released them as something else.

Also for Aux lights I would recommend the Hella 500 Driving Lamp assembly. Priced around 55-65$ and can be found at Pep Boys, Wal-Mart, and usually Advanced and Autozone. They use the Sylvania H3 bulb and are bright as heck, superb for fast driving in the dark as I could run at about 95 in complete darkness with no moon.

Ditto, I run two Hella 500 fogs and two driving lights on a tubular light bar that Underdog use to make. Great for driving at night and bad weather.
