Driving Lights vs Replacement Bulbs or both?

    I have an '03 MM2 which unfortunalty came wit the old lights before Intensifiers. Last year I ran the stock bulbs but want to be better prepared this year. I have been checking out various threds here trying to find the best and brightest replacement bulbs but I haven;t bought a set yet. After talking with a few Buddies I went ahead and bought a set of driving lights which I'm going to install on my back rack. They a cheap pkg set ipicked up at Canadian Tire today. Just a rectangular 55watt Halogen driving light.
    Is that a good idea, and should I hook them up to the switch that comes in the kit, or should I hook them up so they're activated from the high beam switch? I am going to put a relay inline also, I have a relay installed for back lights as well.
    So I guess I'm asking if this is a good, inexpensive way to go. If the lights on the plow were decent I wouldn't have to bother but we know about thoes usless lights. Maby I should get a set of replacement bulbs for mine and have the driving lights on a switch for when I need them. I live in a very rural area...way back in the woods really and I need a lot more light. Just asking for some input from you more experienced Guys. By the way the lights I bought were $30..2x 55 watt clear driving lights, a little wire and switch. The brand name is "Blazer"

    Get a double pole switch, on-off-on. That way you can have them come on with the switch or whenever you put the high beams on. Having them high like that will help. I did some traveling for work last month and we have some lights on the roof. Saved my but from hitting a couple of moose!
