right now at princess auto they have...

3" H3 55 watt halogens for 3$ a piece
4 1/2" H3 100 watt halogens for 14$ a pair (STAINLESS STEEL)

i picked up 6 of the 3'' for back up and clearance lights
and the 4/12'' are on my winch bumper....

great value lights, everyone should go get some, THEY ARE BRIGHT!

for clearance and back up lights i really cant see a better deal tho.

its just a H3 bulb too so finding replacement bulbs wont be a problem.

I have been running them for over a year now (the same set) and have never had a problem just make sure you run an a relay and all is good also all ways ground lights most times the steel body can't support the ground feed the lights are producing and I all ways ground back to a main grounding point ass close to or on the battery stud as possible [cheers]

im gonna stick with the expensive theme of my jeep for the time being and get some 400 dollar PIAA lights, had the PA lights before, didnt like them, not good for snow wheeling, blew the lens out of the housing a few years ago......when i had a front bumper.....

had them on the front of my trruck, they lasted a whole week. they dont seal that great. had 2 of them. after i went through a lake they died..

but the cheap tractor sealed/rubber lights are better, ugly but better
