    Im looking for a light that can light up my whole trucks backside! The $8 buyers lights just arent cutting it.

    Anyone ever try these lights???
    they look like the rigid expensive light... I know its not it but just debating on trying these especially since they will add what ever HID i want to them!

    Anyone know what a good color for HIDs I should get? Im thinking 5k
    at $38 bucks can i go too wrong?

    From what I have read 6000k is the closest to white light as they come. thats what I bought in an other type of off road lights. They are very bright.

    I bought these from this guy, I got the driving light version for my Jeeps front bumper 55 watt 6000K they are very bright, They have a long distance (pencil beam) as well same price. They also have a 4 inch size same watts. I know I am getting off track, but I did see a guy use one of these lights mounted on a Jeep rear spare tire rack. Thats what I call a back up light. HID lights are awesome even the ones from china, ALL my factory headlights and driving lights have been changed over to HID with kits. Once you drive with them regular headlights seem yellow and dim.

    I have had mediocre reliability with HID lights. They are GREAT when they work! For backup or utility I would go LED like the ones I posted for sure, especially at under $30 a light for 1350 lumens.

    The good set in my CJ (with IPF housings) have gone through a couple sets of bulbs over the past few years, and one in my XJ Cherokee failed only after a few months. The CJ kit is from retrosolutions, which replaces the bulbs for free (lifetime warranty on the whole set).
